Compatible with Mac OS X, Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Windows 8 Operating Systems. Not compatible with Windows 10.
The Orion StarShoot AutoGuider's sensor is a high-resolution, 1/2" format 1.3-megapixel CMOS monochrome chip, with 5.2
micro x 5.2 micro pixels for highly accurate guiding. That high accuracy due to the small pixel size means you can use
the AutoGuider with smaller, less expensive guide scopes than is possible with other guide cameras. The chip resides in
a super-compact, anodized aluminum housing that measures just 2.5" wide by 2.35" long and weighs a mere 4.4 oz. It has a
1.25" nosepiece that can be removed to access a T-thread interface. The AutoGuider's short inward focus requirement of
only 15mm from a typical 1.25" Plossl eyepiece makes it compatible with virtually any telescope. The incredible ease of
use will appeal to beginning and experienced astrophotographers alike. The included software requires no previous
knowledge of autoguiding. It offers automatic calibration and guiding with literally a single mouse click. The camera is
powered via your computer's high-speed USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connection with the included 10' USB cable; no other power
source is needed. A 6' RJ-12 cable is also included to connect the AutoGuider to the mount without the need for an
additional RS-232 adapter. With the StarShoot AutoGuider, precision autoguiding for deep-sky astrophotography is now
easier and more economical than ever. Get one today for your imaging setup! One-year limited warranty. Requires PC
running Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, or Windows 10 Operating Systems.
