Model: starlight_xpress_lodestar_x2Part Number: lodestar_x2Brand: Starlight Xpress
The Lodestar X2 is a new and improved version of the highly regarded Lodestar USB2.0 guide camera.
Featuring the Sony ICX829AL EXview II CCD the Lodestar X2 has the same sensor size and resolution as it's predecessor but offers approximately double the sensitivity. This adds almost a full star magnitude to the minimum guide star brightness making it even easier to find a suitable guide star.
It also uses a new RJ12 guide socket which will please those users who found the smaller 'ZH' cable socket on the previous Lodestar too delicate.
As small as a 1.25" eyepiece and weighs considerably less!
I have both old lodestar and new lodestar autoguider CCD. ICX829AL chip is much sensitive then older ICX429AL.
