Starlight Xpress LODESTAR X2 overview

  • 1Description

The redesigned and upgraded Starlight Xpress Lodestar X2 Monochrome Autoguider will help you take your astrophotography to the next level. Its upgraded Sony ICX829AL ExView2 monochrome sensor has improved quantum efficiency with greater sensitivity than the original Lodestar sensor that adds nearly a full star magnitude to the minimum guide star brightness. The redesign also changes the small ZH guide cable to a more robust and standard ST4-compatible RJ12 style. The Lodestar X2 supports remote mount control from your computer through the autoguider to your mount allowing you to make adjustments without having to touch the mount or leaving your remote location.

It is powered and controlled via a single Mini-B USB 2.0 cable connected to your Windows computer and running the included guide software. The RJ12 out socket is used to connect the Lodestar to your GoTo mount's autoguider port—located on the mount or hand controller depending on model—to directly control the mount for accurate long-duration tracking during your astrophotography sessions. This stand-alone autoguider is made to be used in smaller guide scopes piggybacked on your larger imaging rig and simply fits into 1.25" drawtubes. Auxiliary CS-mount threads allow you to directly connect the Lodestar X2 to smaller CCTV lenses, or more standard C-mount lenses with the addition of an optional adapter.
