The ST-5C is an excellent guide camera or a stand alone imager. Included is the CPU controller box, power supply (wall transformer), power cables, telescope interface cable, parallel port interface cable for PC, operating manual and custom fitted hard case. Software is not included. For imaging, with its 10 micron pixels, this camera produces outstanding high resolution images with fast focal length telescopes. This makes it an excellent choice for the Celestron "Fastar" scopes. It is also an outstanding auto-guider with high sensitivity and quick down load time and is compatible with the FR-237 focal reducer and the CFW5C filter wheel, both available as accessories from SBIG or other dealers. The ST-5C has an electronic shutter and a mechanical shutter, which allows you to take dark frames without having to cover your scope's optical path, a convienence you will appreciate. This setup is only 18 months old and sells for $895. You can have it for only $600 and I will pay for UPS shipping in the ConUS. I accept cash or money orders only for immediate shipping. Thanks for looking.
