The guide camera can then be connected directly to the ST-4 compatible autoguider port of your telescope mount. Connecting the tracking camera via USB cable to your Windows computer and install the camera drivers and any Autoguider software - you can start properly auto guided accurate astrophotography.

Versatile guider & imager
The guide camera is very useful for autoguiding but can also be used as a serious imager. The Sony IMX290 will provide stunning images when used as an imager of planetary, lunar and deep sky objects
IMX290 Colour Guide Camera & Imager
One of the main characteristics of the new back-illuminated SONY IMX290 CMOS sensor in the Bresser Full HD Deep-Sky Camera & Guider 1.25", is the high sensitivity to light which makes it possible to also capture deep-sky objects without active cooling. Sony has increased the quantum efficiency up to 77% at 533nm wavelength which is much better than many rival CMOS sensors could achieve in the past
NOTE: The autoguider software is not included. You can use PHD Guiding, Guidedog, Metaguide, Guidemaster (Freeware) or AstroArt, MaxIm DL (chargeable).

Great product and service. Firstly, a pleasant and easy transaction from Harrison Telescopes. Easy to order and prompt delivery. The Kit: Fantastic guide scope with camera, fitted on my newtonian and mounted with no issues all supplied fittings provided. The camera is very nice to use either on its own via USB or St4 guiding.
