I'm moving up to an MX7C so I have an MX5C camera with "B" chip installed two years ago for sale with Star2000 Self-guiding module. It works great with Astroart or with the StarlightXpress software. Includes camera, Star2000 module, power supply which runs off of either AC or 12V, cables for the power supply, camera and guiding module, and manual. Double resolution mode available with Astroart. I'd like $825 + shipping for the camera and the module as described above. All is in excellent condition. Write or call me with any questions. Specs below.
