Baader Planetarium LVI Smart Guider SG1

Stand Alone Autoguiding  - Guiding without a separate computer or laptop!
Comfortable astro-imaging with a minimum of equipment. No computer is needed.

After a long time of waiting we are proud to present the new "Stand Alone Autoguider" - a tool that many amateur astrophotographers have been waiting for for years! Like the legendary SBIG ST4 and STV autoguiders the SmartGuider provides autoguiding without the need for using a separate computer or laptop!

The Motto:
Plug and Play - simply enjoy astro imaging.
-- Stand Alone Autoguiding
-- compact, robust, light-weight, minimum power consumption
-- no Laptop or PC is needed anymore
-- very easy to use
-- works with most autoguiding-capable mounts (plugs directly into ST-4 compatible RJ ports)

Dawn of a new age of astro-imaging: Autoguiding with the LVI SmartGuider:
Just leave all the surplus equipment at home! You no longer need a separate computer, which makes the LVI particularly interesting for imaging with a DSLR camera. You are largely independent from electric power - the LVI just needs a 12V power supply and consumes only very moderate power compared with a laptop.

But at the same time the LVI Stand-alone autoguider is also a great benefit for astrophotographers using CCD cameras. Many softwares will have difficulties operating more than one camera at the same time. Likewise there might be restrictions set by the processing power or the maximum data rate that your computer can handle. All of this can be avoided with the LVI Standalone Autoguider.

The LVI is particularly easy to use. After only a short period of training you will be able to operate the LVI without difficulties.

Functions of the LVI SmartGuider:
-- Automatic guide star search
-- Real-time view of the guide star on the display
-- Live focus image and position control of the guide star
-- Automatic calibration of both axes (RA and DEC)
-- Adjustable volume and brightness
-- Individual guiding settings (e.g. aggressiveness) in both axes
-- Sub-pixel algorithm allows you to use guide scopes with a short focal length
