QHYCCD QHY5L-II-M (Mono) Planetary and Gui... $189.00
The QHY5L-II Series uncooled cameras fit in a standard 1.25-inch eyepiece holder and have an adjustable location ring for confocality with an eyepiece. They are ideal for use as low-weight autoguiders or planetary cameras where short exposures are typical. Description The cameras come in very small but powerful packages! The improved thermal design allows the heat generated by the CMOS sensor to be transferred externally to the telescope’s eyepiece tube. QHY5L-II is one of our most popular guide cameras, it has high sensitivity, an exceptional 74% QE, and low noise. The read noise is remarkably low (~ 4 electrons) and...

Orion StarShoot AutoGuider (52064) $389.99
Now Mac compatible with Intel-based Mac computers! Software and drivers are now available for use of the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider with Apple computers running Mac OS X. Visit the StarShoot AutoGuider product support section to download software and drivers. Description Autoguiding has revolutionized the capture of deep-sky astro-images by mechanizing the tedious and tiring method of "manually" guiding an astrophotography exposure, which involved staring endlessly into an illuminated reticle telescope eyepiece while vigilantly tweaking your mount's electronic drive controls by hand to keep the stars pinpoint sharp. Until now, the problem has always been the lack of a simple, affordable...
