Excellent product. Simple to use and guides beautifully. Rick Kazmierski
They seem to have an accurate stock info unlike other dealer which says in stock but sent you an email that it is back ordered.
I use the StarShoot as my guide camera along with the Orion 90mm scope in the Awesome Autoguide package. I've always been disappointed with the image quality even after performing a simple calibration. It seems to have Lots of hot pixels. I've had 2 units fail within 4 years. I think the cameras can't take the Texas heat. I would not recommend this to a friend.
This a perfect guiding camera: easy to use (I use it with MaximDL), solid, never any problem to find a star, calibrate any kind of mount, and guide for long exposures (up to 20 minutes). Why ask for more ?
It worked wonders with PHD2,but the drivers needed some tinkering to operate over USB 3.0. Its not impossible, if anyone has experience with installing drivers on XP and olders windows versions the manual way then it would be rather straight forward. I would feel it unfair to rate the product less because of this minor issue, which can be solved via a simple google search. Thanks
I used the auto guider with a telescope drive with a large periodic error of 65 arc-sec. I got round star images on an imaging telescope with 400mm focal length and a guide scope with 325mm focal length. PHD Guide software is very easy to learn. Over all this is an excellent auto. Guide camera.
