Listening to our customer’s feedback and continuously improving the user experience is the philosophy that ZWO has always insisted on. Since the last version was released, after more than one month of intense development and testing, we have added many features to the new version.

I bought the OAG some time ago, but I hadn't used it yet. Yesterday I tried it with a cooled ASI 1600MC and my venerable ASI 120mm.
I put the 21mm extender to the 1600, and the 5mm extender to the 120 but I realized that the 120 was not well focused. I estimate I would have needed about 5mm more distance (a 10mm extender)
