FREE UPS/USPS GROUND SHIPPING TO LOWER 48 STATES. Package includes Celestron NexImage5 Solar System Color Imager, Shoestring Astronomy GPUSB module, ST4 guide cable, Orion 50 mm Mini Guidescope (#8891), Orion 70 mm Multi-Finder Scope (#7220), and Celestron 1-1/4" Star Diagonal 94115-A.

The NexImage 5 is a very nice starter planetary camera that has served me well. See attached images. The GPUSB module allows the NexImage 5 to be used as a guide camera in PHD/PHD2. I have successfully used the NexImage 5 with both the 50 mm and 70 mm guide scopes. I am also including the star diagonal to allow focus to be reached with the 70 mm scope and the NexImage 5.

Both the 50 mm and 70 mm scopes have the 31 mm wide dovetail mount that fits many types of finder bases. I am including the flat base for the 50 mm, but used some of the screws that came with it. You can easily find the screw details in Orion's literature and get them for a few bucks at the hardware store. Just make sure that they are a good fit for your scope. If you have an SCT like I do, you will probably need to buy another finder base from Orion. However, the finder base that came with my Skywatcher 80ED was already compatible.

All items sold as is, but I have recently verified that they are all in working order. Support literature and info is available on the Celestron, Orion, and Shoestring Astronomy websites. No international orders please. Prefer payment via Zelle, but will also accept personal check. Thanks for looking!
