Player One guiding camera series including 4 models. Outlook of guiding camera is much smaller and lighter. As we know, our planetary camera named with planets in solar system. So our guiding camera will use dwarf planet for naming.
Did you still use USB2.0 camera for guiding and imaging? Do you feel it is too slow? From now, Player One will use USB3.0 transmission technology in guiding cameras. Faster enough for both guiding and imaging.
FOV is very important in guiding, especially looking for a guide star with an OAG, this series include 1/3″, 1/2″ and 1/1.2″ format. Different format can help users to handle every situation.
