Self-Guiding System for all Starlight Xpress CCD cameras with an MX prefix.
STAR 2000 is a completely new method of correcting the tracking drives of a telescope, while taking an image with a CCD camera. Unlike all other autoguiders, or dual CCD self-guiding cameras, STAR 2000 uses the imaging CCD itself to sense drive errors and generate correction signals. This is possible, because the Starlight Xpress 'MX' cameras use Sony 'Interline transfer, Interlaced CCDs', which have a special structure not found in 'Full frame', 'Frame transfer' and 'Progressive scan' CCD devices, as used by other manufacturers.
