About this product

Model:  ultrastar_pro
Part Number:  110-0021

The new Ultrastar Pro is the Lodestars Pro's big cousin.

Higher resolution and twice the active area with similar low read noise and high QE. The Ultrastar Pro is an outstanding guide camera and a fantastic outreach/introductory camera for deep sky imaging.

When used with PHD2 Autoguiding Software this is an excellent autoguider, and with the Starlight Vision Software the Ultrastar is the perfect "Live Stacking" Camera.
