Product Details

  • SBIG's mid-size, high performance Aluma Series cameras offer features and capabilities that are not available in any other scientific-grade imaging camera! This series of cameras also supports a vast range or accessories, from the 8-position FW8S-Aluma filter wheel and StarChaser SC-2 off-axis guide camera, to the AO-8A Adaptive Optics accessory and Remote Guide Head. The AL-694-SC-PACK is the standard Aluma option with USB and WiFi interface.


    FW8S-Aluma is the standard (non-guided) 8-position filter wheel for Aluma Series cameras. This filter wheel does not have a built-in self-guiding image sensor. It is compatible with Canon EOS and Nikon lens adapters.

    The carousel holds eight 36mm filters and SBIG has 1.25" inserts available separately. The 36mm filters offer unvignetted imaging for the largest Aluma sensors. Aluma wheels are machined with a positive centering mechanism that centers each filter in the exact same position every single time you use it. Talk about pinpoint single pixel accuracy!

    SBIG StarChaser Off-Axis Guider Camera

    The StarChaser (SC-2) is the world's first all-in-one off-axis guider that is equipped with a built-in camera and integrated AO support. You will also receive MaxIm LT software for full operation.
