Guiding Setup Advice

Hey guys - Just after a bit of gear advice.

Currently have a Skywatcher 8" Newt and looking to start autoguiding.

Here's what I've been thinking after doing a bit of reading - Just wanted to double check I'm not missing anything from my planned set up or getting confused etc.

Guide scope: Sky-watcher 80 / 400 refractor - $99

Guide Cam: ZWO ASI120MM-S (USB3 version) - $279

Extension tube from refractor to camera - $35

Guide scope rings - $65

Mounting bar - $69
https://www.bintel.com.au/product/or...v=322b26af01d5

Total ~ $500

Anyone see any issues with planned set up? Or any alternative suggestions?

Cheers!
