Autoguider Receives Accolades From S&T
Autoguider Receives Accolades From S&T
Our new StarShoot AutoGuider is quickly proving that accurate guiding for deep-sky imaging can be achieved without breaking the bank. Recently, this product received a four-star rating from Sky & Telescope. Here are a few excerpts from the review?


?Orion?s StarShoot AutoGuider worked great. It was simple to set up and start guiding accurately. The resulting photos showed well-tracked, pinpoint stars.?

?A nice feature of the StarShoot is its simple cable connections. There?s an RJ-12 jack on the camera, allowing it to connect directly to the mount with a single, simple cable. The other camera connection is for a USB cable that runs to a laptop?just two cables are needed to run the auto-guiding system.?

?With my 66-mm guidescope, the StarShoot proved sensitive enough to always find a suitable guidestar even in the star-poor fields surrounding some popular galaxies.?

?Orion has provided a fine autoguiding package that breaks new ground for affordability and ease of use?Given the StarShoot AutoGuider?s low cost and high level of performance, virtually every deep-sky astrophotographer can now enjoy the benefits of autoguiding.?

Why put up with tedious ?manual? guiding of long exposures? Get the affordable computerized guiding solution for deep-sky astrophotography.
