My guide scope is an Altair Maxi Guider which is an 80mm diameter x 328mm focal length scope. This guide scope is attached to a top mounted plate above my imaging scope and it's fitted with a QHY5II guide camera. It is attached using 2 x tube rings with nylon tipped screws.

 

This guide scope and my imaging scope are alligned by centering both on the same object. The camera sensors (guide and imaging) are orientated at the same angle.

 

The QHY5II guide camera is focused using the helical focuser as this only needs to be done once.
