SBIG provides a complete guiding solutions for our cameras. All current SBIG cameras can be guided either with the StarChaser SC-2 or SC-3. Our Adaptive Optics AO-8A and AO-X units provide fast tip/tilt guiding, which can eliminate image motion due to telescope drive inaccuracies, wind gusts, and other random disturbances. When operating at high rates the AO units can reduce the impact of seeing, resulting in tighter star images and higher resolution.
