Does anyone have any experience with the SVBony 30 mm Guidescope .At the present time I was able to buy the SVBony scope for $54 and it looks somewhat similar to the ZWO 30mm guidescope but I haven't received it yet. The total setup with guide camera is very reasonable but I don't have any experience with this scope. Any info would be appreciated.

I have the SVBony 30 mm guidescope paired with a ASI290MM.  I have no complaints.

 

The rings on the SVBony scope might actually be superior to the ZWO scope since it has two set screws along the body.  The ZWO holder has screws round the perimeter, which might cause more flexure/movement (but I have no experience with it).

Thanks for the input, I plan to use  a ZWO ASI  120 mini with the SVBony  scope guiding  my Skywatcher 72 Evostar. I'll  let you know how it works.

Thanks

I received the SVBony 30 mm guidescope  and paired it with a ZWO ASI 120mm camera on top of my Skywatcher Evostar 72 ED. It enabled my setup to track surprisingly well. On my EQ6-R using PHD2  I was getting .6 total error and that was near Polaris . The little SVBony was showing lots of tracking stars and seems to be a well made little scope.
