Starlight Xpress Autoguider Monochrome

 

Starlight Xpress is pleased to announce the Superstar CCD Autoguider. Simply incorporating a higher resolution sensor as compared to the Lodestar, the advantage of Superstar is the ability to act as an autoguider and short expsore CCD. With a resolution of 1392 x 1040 pixels and 6.4mm x 4.75mm image area, the SuperStar CCD Autoguider is both remarkable for deep sky as well as planetary observing. The autoguider connects via USB ports and contains Opto-Isolated control outputs. Along with these convenient and remarkable features, the SuperStar AutoGuider CCD by Starlight Xpress ways only 1.5 ounces!
