AO-8 Conversion Plates
Conversion plates can be used to adapt AO-8 / AO-8T / AO-8A adaptive optics units to different camera models.
AO-8 is the original version compatible with ST-7 series cameras.
AO-8T is compatible with STT series cameras, and requires a FW8G-STT self-guided filter wheel or a Remote Guide Head.
AO-8A is compatible with:
- Older blue-colored Aluma cameras with FW8G-Aluma filter wheels.
- STC-7 and STC-428-P cameras equipped with SBIG StarChaser SC-2 Off Axis Guider Camera.
- Certain older cameras equipped with StarChaser SC-2 – contact us for information on compatibility with your camera.
Please note that StarChaser and STC cameras use a mini-DIN connector; other models use a DB-9 connector. An adapter cable is available to allow an AO-8A to be operated by STT and ST camera models.
