Hello Tommy,

Short answer is no, it won't work.

SharpCap Pro needs an in-camera field of view of between 1 to 2.5 degrees. When plugging your ZWO ASI120MC-S and the Astro Tech AT60ED into a calculator you'll end up with an in-camera field of view of 0.76 x 0.57 degrees. So your field of view is just too tight.

The Orion 50 mm guide scope will give you an in-camera field of view of 1.63 x 1.22 degrees, which would be fine.

Regards
