From SBIG site:
The ST-6B uses a proprietary two stage thermoelectric cooler design. The CCD temperature is user selectable and regulated to 0.1 degree. The ST-6B incorporates a unique feature called Automatic Track &
Accumulate (TRACCUM), allowing automatic guiding of long integrated images. In the TRACCUM mode the ST-6B will take an exposure, determine the position of a preselected star, add the image to the image sum building in an internal memory buffer, correct the telescope's position and then start the cycle over again. In this mode up to 64 images can be co-added. The resulting exposure is almost as good as a single long exposure, dependent on the exposure used and the actual sky conditions. The great sensitivity of the
CCD virtually guarantees that there will be a usable guide star within the field of view. This patented feature provides dramatic performance and makes long exposures easy.
