Quick Overview

This Starlight Xpress kit, composed by USB Adaptive Optics with off axis guider, 5x50.8mm filter wheel and guide camera, is the perfect solution if you're using a monochrome CCD camera with medium-long focal length telescope and you need to set the imaging camera sensor at a precise distance from reducer/corrector of the telescope.

This model has 50.8mm filter wheel and M48 male thread connection in camera side so it's advised for cameras with sensors up to 43mm diagonal.

Adaptive optics corrects quick errors (usually caused by air turbolence) and increase the recorded details, the off axis guider with autoguide camera automatically corrects for mount tracking errors, USB motorized filter wheel lets you select the used filter in front of the imaging camera.


The perfect combination:

Unlike other solutions, Starlight Xpress USB adaptive optics can be used with any imaging camera. However, it requires the use of an off-axis guider and a Starlight Xpress guide camera (such as the sensitive Lodestar X2 we recommend for this application). Adaptive optics are often used with medium-long focal length telescopes in long exposure astrophotography and often these telescopes require you to place the imaging camera at a precise distance from its integrated corrector, if present (for example the integrated flattener or reducer of Celestron EdgeHD telescopes needs 105mm distance). So you also need to pay attention to the thickness of the entire system consisting of

adaptive optics + off-axis guider + possible filter wheel + imaging camera

Starlight Xpress has a special low-profile off-axis guider that is fixed directly on its adaptive optics and also on special low-profile Starlight Xpress motorized filter wheel. This will prevent any bending and the entire group of accessories (adaptive optics + off-axis + filter wheel) has a thickness of only 78mm. This design also allows for the Lodestar X2 guide camera be close to parafocality with the imaging room (if this has an approximately 15-20mm backfocus).
