They are the first camera series to offer a USB 3.0 interface for ultra fast download times.

- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsI'd like to use this as a guide star camera. Does it have guide star software and if not, what would you recommend?
Also, the shutter delay is 10 seconds. Is there anyway this can be extended?Question by: Wayne Skinner on Feb 24, 2016 7:43:00 AMUnfortunately, the Skyris line was developed not as an autoguider but as a high speed lunar/planetary camera. They do not have relay connections and so cannot connect to 6 pin guide cables. In addition, you will want to use a monochrome camera as they are ~4-8x better at picking up faint guide stars due to their lower noise and higher sensitivity. We do carry many other autoguiding cameras from Celestron and other manufacturers. Please contact us to let us know what mount and scope you are using and we can find you a good autoguider solution.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Feb 26, 2016 5:50:00 PM
