A pre-owned Starlight Xpress UltraSTAR Colour guide camera in very good condition. The sensor and ports are all clean. Comes with case, USB lead and software CD. You will just need a guide cable to make this work.

This was bought new in February 2017, so it's only a couple of years old. 

Comes with an RVO 3 month warranty. 

Product Info 

The Ultrastar cameras are advanced versions of Starlight Xpress's 'Superstar' guide camera and have a similar resolution of 1392 x 1040 pixels. However, the CCD chip has 70% more area and the QE is considerably greater, at around 75% peak. These characteristics give the Ultrastar an excellent performance as both a guide camera and an imaging camera, which is especially well suited to 'Live Viewing' mode. Some years ago, Paul Shears released a simple to use program called 'Lodestar Live', which uses the SX Lodestar in 'Live Viewing' mode. This has now been upgraded to 'Starlight Live' and is capable of controlling both the Lodestar and the Ultrastar in Live view. It can also color convert and stack images from the single-shot color versions of these cameras.
