Part Number:  SARKIT1-00

Stand-alone autoguider with automatic polar alignment, built-in plate solving and camera control.

Latest Revision B version

Make astrophotography a hassle-free experience with the world’s first stand-alone autoguider with camera control and dithering, comet tracking,  AI-powered automatic polar alignment and built-in plate-solving.  Easy set-up, sharper photos, exceptional reliability.

Polar alignment in 2 minutes - Point your telescope up at the sky. No need to have a view on the poles. StarAid Revolution will determine the exact coordinates to set the axes of your mount to. Adjust the mount knobs as indicated in the StarAid app. That’s it. No polar scope, no awkward crouching.

Start guiding within 30 seconds - Plug in the cable, then lean back and enjoy a warm drink. StarAid Revolution starts up and operates autonomously. It resumes when clouds pass by, and tracks and keeps stars centred at high accuracy.

Fix guiding errors immediately and with ease - If guiding is interrupted, the LED lights will immediately indicate that. Open the StarAid app on your phone or tablet, check the reason of the error. Read the solution and fix it right away. No complicated software needed.

Guide and photograph comets - Select a comet from the object guiding catalogue, point your telescope, and start photographing. StarAid keeps the comet centred, allowing you to take long uninterrupted sub-exposures.

Control your camera, dithering between shots - StarAid Revolution (Revision B) provides a standard 2.5mm camera shutter port that is supported by most DSLR and mirrorless camera models. Once StarAid has control over your camera’s remote shutter release, you can configure the exposure time of your camera and the number of shots you want to take. Dithering between shots is fully supported, reducing noise and artifacts in your images.

Stand-alone autoguiding, handy app for extras - No laptop or any other device needed for set-up or for monitoring the status of autoguiding. Connect StarAid Revolution to start, plug in the power and be up and running in seconds. Open the free app to check the status of guiding whenever you like, and to access advanced functionality.

Get up to 30% sharper photos - StarAid Revolution tracks dozens of stars simultaneously, many times per second. It automatically tweaks and tunes when needed. A clever algorithm detects and reduces seeing effects. These ensure the best guiding circumstances and sharpest pictures.
