Starlight Xpress UltraStar Mono in excellent condition. Comes with protective cap, CD-ROM, autoguider cable and USB cable in its original case. 

The Ultrastar camera is an advanced version of the Starlight Express Superstar'guide camera and has a similar resolution of 1392 x 1040 pixels. However, the CCD chip has 70% more area and the QE is considerably greater, at around 75% peak. These characteristics give the Ultrastar an excellent performance as both a guide camera and an imaging camera, which is especially well suited to 'Live Viewing' mode.
