Step up to the next level of guiding accuracy and multi-purpose imaging versatility with the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider Pro Mono Astrophotography Camera. This highly sensitive monochrome imaging device is primarily designed for precise autoguiding, but it also performs as a high-quality astrophotography camera.
Boasting an astounding 74% quantum efficiency, the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro will literally "guide" you to capturing better, cleaner, more precise astrophotos thanks to its sensitivity when used as an autoguider, and it features a built-in ST-4 port. The camera's slim, lightweight design allows for improved back-focus range and better compatibility with guiding and imaging accessories such as off-axis guiders.

Its 1/3" CMOS sensor resolution of 1280x960 (1.2MP) not only helps achieve delightfully accurate autoguiding, it also makes the StarShoot AutoGuider Pro an ideal solar system imaging camera capable of capturing sharp monochrome exposures of the Moon and planets. The camera's exceptionally fast frame rate of up to 200 frames per second (FPS) ensures you'll catch even the most fleeting moments of clear seeing for great results.
