We've taken user-friendly, affordable autoguiding to the next level with our StarShoot Solitaire!

This innovative, stand-alone autoguiding camera provides a streamlined solution - a laptop computer is no longer required for autoguider control!

The StarShoot Solitaire AutoGuider includes a control box and all the necessary cabling to begin autoguiding right out of the box.

This convenient alternative also significantly lessens the chance for computer crashes or other imaging system malfunctions.

The Solitaire AutoGuider makes it possible for almost anyone to start enjoying the fascinating and rewarding world of astrophotography, without the need for an expensive or overly complicated imaging setup. The built-in logic behind the Solitaire's control pad allows you to guide with pushbutton ease. the Solitaire's sensor is powered by a 1/3" format Aptina MT9V032 CMOS chip, with a 752x480 pixel layout and 6 micron x 6 micron pixel size for high sensitivity and accurate autoguiding. As such, the Solitaire can be used with smaller, less expensive guide scopes. The autoguider camera also features a machined aluminum design with a black anodized finish, and weighs just 3.8 oz.

This smart autoguider automatically calibrates itself and detects guidestars, adjusting the exposure accordingly. It works with all equatorial mounts equipped with ST-4 compatible autoguide port, including the SkyView Pro GoTo, Sirius EQ-G, and Atlas EQ-G mounts.
