Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Monochrome Camera Additional Info


Take the next step in guiding precision and multi-use imaging flexibility with this Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Monochrome Astrophotography Camera. Although the main purpose of this highly sensitive imaging device's design is accurate autoguiding, it also serves as a superior quality camera for astro-imaging.

With an incredible 74% quantum efficiency, the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro, which features a built-in ST-4 port, actually "guides" you toward capturing images with improved precision and clarity due to its high sensitivity when employed as an autoguider. The sleek, lightweight design of this camera provides enhanced back-focus range and better compatibility with off-axis guiders as well as other guiding and imaging accessories.

The StarShoot AutoGuider Pro features a 1/3" CMOS sensor resolution of 1280x960 (1.2 MP) that helps the user attain exceptionally accurate autoguiding, and also makes it an ideal solar system imaging device with the ability to take sharp monochrome lunar and planetary exposures. This camera has an remarkably fast frame rate of up to 200 fps (frames per second) to guarantee you'll capture even the briefest moments of clear viewing for excellent results.

This multi-purpose camera can even be used to image galaxies, nebulae, and other deep space objects due to its extended 10 min. maximum exposure time. Conversely, it can also take quick exposures in as low as 20 ms. And since the StarShoot AutoGuider sports a monochrome imaging chip, you can decide on the correct balances of LRGB and narrowband filters to highlight details.

Package comes with Orion AstroCap software loaded with capture features like histogram, focus aids, auto dark frame removal, exposure and gain settings, and more. Works with Windows XP, Vista, 7/8/10 (32 & 64 bit). Includes ASCOM driver.

The versatile Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro comes with an array of handy items including a nosepiece threaded for use with 1.25" filters, a parfocal ring for helping to match eyepiece focus to camera focus, USB cable, secure RJ-11 autoguider cable, and a foam-lined tin case to avoid damage during transport.
