This is the best autoguider around. It also takes good astrophotos (see a Track&Accumulate 5 min shot of M51 below). This is the same chip used in the ST-237 CCD camera.
I also can email a 4 minute photo of M42 taken through an LX200 8" at F/10 and guided by the Efinder for anyone wanting one. Also can send photo of the STV and all components in it's included hardcase.
I am selling this simply because I no longer need it since I have recently purchased an SBIG ST-10XME ( has as a separate guide chip the same chip in the STV ) and I also have an ST-4 guider.
I bought the STV new from Astronomics in July of 2002. It is in perfect condition, never had any problems. Has the latest firmware to enable use with SBIB's color filter wheel and other improvements.
Included( all the items that are sold with the STV Deluxe ):
5" viewing screen
The Sky V.4 Level II
CCDOPS V. 4 & 5
Hartman Mask software
All Cables and manuals
New today this item is $2,600 before tax and shipping.
Will sell for $1,950 including ground FedEx in CONUS.
