Product Details

  • Starlight Xpress's Lodestar PRO Autoguider Camera now takes first place in the race for the Best Autoguider on the market! Finding a faint guide star is now so easy with faster download time and super low read noise figures.

    The high sensitivity and low read noise are attributed to the Sony ICX829AL CCD chip, which was also used in the Lodestar and Lodestar X2. Although the Lodestar PRO is not cooled, the low dark signal and low readout noise are able to compensate for this to guide on stars that are beyond the reach of webcams and CMOS chip based guide cameras. The UltraStar PRO is equipped with a full-size RJ12 autoguider port, so you're not forced to run extra cables from your computer to make corrections to your mount.

    The Lodestar PRO is extremely compact in size (31.75mm dia x 85mm long), which is also the size of a 1.25 inch eyepiece push fit. Bring this autoguider with you on your next star party to find your guide star and start viewing the wonders of the night sky.

OPT as usual is prompt and attentive in any communication. The guide cam itself, although I've only had a chance to use it a couple of times, works flawlessly out f the box (OAG 2540mm focal length). Drivers were included in a small thumb drive and worked with PHD2 without issue. Driver options are limited and unclear but I may not have read the manual to catch why you'd want to use square pixels and why the camera does not have square pixels.
