It allows for a ZWO ASIAIR unit and a guide scope to be mounted atop your Explore Scientific refractor telescope or compatible third party telescope.

Key Features:

  • Versatile Dovetail Mount: Our handle bar includes a built-in dovetail mount that seamlessly accommodates guide scopes, finder scopes, or other Vixen-sized accessories. With 3 locking bolts, it accommodates a wide range of accessories of different lengths. In addition the back of the dovetail is filled, so that even if a bolt was to come loose or not properly secured, the guide scope cannot slide out and fall backwards. Now you can easily expand your telescope's capabilities for astrophotography with a secure dedicated space for your guide scope assembly.
  • Integrated ZWO ASIAIR Mounting Platform: The handle bar features a dedicated platform for mounting your ZWO ASIAIR control unit (Pro, Plus, Mini) or other essential accessories. Designed with the specific ASIAIR mounting dimensions in mind (but with many additional connection points & slots for various other accessories), it allows several mounting positions while keeping the unit centred along the main axis of your telescope, ensuring it does not cause imbalance like mounting it to the side would. By placing the unit towards the front of the telescope, it also helps balancing the rig, often tail heavy with flattener, camera, filter wheel etc. Keep your control unit within easy reach and in the immediate vicinity of the guide scope assembly, streamlining your astrophotography setup. Stainless steel hex bolts included for mounting the ASIAIR unit.
  • Effortless Cable Management: Say goodbye to cable clutter. Our handle bar is designed with cable management in mind, providing 2 guide grooves on the sides as well as large through holes, allowing excess cable to be routed through. This enables a tidy and organised setup. Enjoy hassle-free operation without the worry of tangled wires.
  • Rugged and Reliable: Crafted from high-strength engineering grade plastic, this handle bar is designed for durability. Rigorously tested to withstand loads of 100kg without deformation or breakage, it guarantees years of dependable use under the night sky. Generous clearance to telescope as well as grippy dots located under the handle bar ensure a secure grip even when handling the scope with gloves, in the cold or if dew has formed.
  • Easy Installation: Installing the handle bar is a breeze. It utilises the native bolts of your Explore Scientific telescope handle, providing a secure and stable connection without the need for complex modifications.
  • Universal fit: works not only on Explore Scientific, but also on any telescope with adjustable ring spacing that can accomodate a 160mm spacing. The Mount connection holes are 6.5mm in diameter. Upgrade your telescope now!
