Product Description

Features

Remote Guide Head for Aluma CCD, STT, STXL and STX Series Cameras

You can add a second head to your Aluma CCD, STT, STXL or STX camera and guide using a separate guide scope, camera lens or OAG.  The Remote Guide Head (RGH) contains a KAI-0340 monochrome CCD sensor, which is operated by electronics built into the main camera.  The RGH plugs into the Remote Guide Head Port on the camera body and receives its power and signals from the camera.  The RGH can only be used when connected to the RGH port on an Aluma CCD, STT, STX, or STXL camera.  The RGH can control an Adaptive Optics accessory in conjunction with an STX, STXL. STT, or Aluma camera.

The RGH comes with a 6 foot (~2m) HDMI cable.


 

STX USERS PLEASE NOTE:

Early models STX cameras used a different connector and different remote guide head than the remote guide head shown on this page.  We no longer make the early version of remote guide head for these older models.  You can determine the compatibility of your camera with the new remote guide head by the type of connector:

The older style remote head connector is shown at left above.                 The newer style HDMI type remote had connector is shown at right above.
