I'm selling a like new/almost mint EZ Guider. This includes the F6.3/F5 focal reducing lens. Included are all caps in the photo, camera T adaptor as well as a 2" to 1 1/4 # adaptor to allow visual observation with that size EP. I am the orignal owner and estimate that I have used approx a dozen times, always packing it away after use so it remains it "pristine" condition. I am now using a guide scope exclusively so am selling. The Guider with Focal Reducer sells for $249.00 new, and the EP adaptor goes for about $20.00. I will sell for $180.00.
cheers and clear skies

Here's the Lumicon Product Write UP

Not only is the Lumicon Cassegrain Easy-Guider a superb off-axis guider, it is also an excellent visual focal reducing lens system. With the 50mm lens in the standard position behind the off-axis prism (on the camera side of the guider), photographic speed is about f/6.5. The fully-coated lens can also be moved to a position in front of the prism (on the telescope side of the guider), yielding an approximate f/5 ratio. Exposure durations with the Lumicon Cassegrain Easy-Guider are thus 2 to 4 times shorter, and the visual field-of-view is increased.

The filter compartment is located behind the pick-off prism on the camera side of the Cassegrain Easy-Guider, allowing you to guide off-axis with UNFILTERED starlight; only the camera's starlight is filtered -- a real bonus! All other off-axis guiders on the market have pick-off prisms only a fraction of the size of Lumicon's Cassegrain Easy-Guider, and they require that the focal reducing lens AND filter be mounted AHEAD of the guider. This greatly dims fainter guide-stars, making guiding on them all but impossible.
