I am selling my Orion SteadyStar Adaptive Optics Guider with Field Rotator for $900 with free shipping in
the US. I am the original owner and bought it new from Orion in December 2011. When the unit was first
introduced by Orion it was being sold for $2500. I am selling it because I am now imaging with a Full Frame
DSLR camera and would need the larger "LF" model with the 50 mm diameter AO lens for Full Frame
cameras. This unit has a 40 mm diameter AO lens that supports APS-C format sensors including DSLRs
and amply sized CCD cameras.

I used this unit on my 20" Starmaster Alt-Az dob for imaging. A photo of M17 taken can be seen along with
how I mounted it on my Starmaster here:


The unit is in very good condition and includes the original accessories, software CD and owner's manuals.

The accessories included are:

• 2" nosepiece
• Fine focus guiding adapter
• 48mm thread to male T-thread adapter and rotation lock ring (for back side)
• 30mm T-adapter Extension
• 17mm T-adapter Extension
• 7mm T-adapter Extension
• 10' USB Cable
• 10' 12VDC Socket Cable
• 10' Autoguider Cable
• Hex key
