Starlight Xpress SXV Adaptive Optics
The Starlight Xpress SXV-AO should be used with the off-axis guider for the best results with most optical systems. This combination uses an SXV guide head to view the edge of the telescope field via a 10mm square prism and provides accurate positional feedback to the control software. Unlike cameras with an integrated guider chip, the OAG puts the guide camera ahead of any filters that the user fits into the camera ring recess and so its sensitivity is always at maximum. The guide camera mounting is designed to be parfocal with an SX camera when used in this combination - fine focus adjustment is provided by moving the threaded guider mount along the prism tube.
