Santa Barbara Instrument Group (or SBIG) is regarded as the pioneering company of imaging and guiding products for the astronomy community. So while there are other cameras on the market that do planetary imaging and autoguiding, SBIG is providing a solution unsurpassed in both technology and value for both applications.

The innovative, eyepiece-size ST-i camera is aimed at both entry-level and advanced amateur astronomers. Unlike other autoguiding cameras, the ST-i includes a mechanical shutter, providing greater sensitivity and more accurate guiding as users can now automatically capture and use dark frames while autoguiding. The camera can take exposures as short as 0.001 seconds and focus at up to 21 frames per second. It will download 16-bit images at up to 12 frames per second, allowing users to extract finer detail with higher dynamic range than 8 bit cameras, especially when doing planetary imaging

Recognizing that many astronomers begin imaging with DSLR’s and video cameras, SBIG is also bundling the ST-i with a suite of powerful software that can be used by any imager regardless of whether they use a CCD camera or DSLR for imaging. The ST-i comes with fully functional versions of Software Bisque’s The SkyTM version 5 and CCDSoftTM, versions 5. Combined with SBIG’s own CCDOpsTM and PlanetMasterTM software for high resolution planetary imaging, this bundled suite of imaging and planetarium software provides customers with a powerful and comprehensive set of tools. The imaging software suite not only supports the planetary and autoguiding functionality of the ST-i but also provides a comprehensive planetarium, telescope control and image processing solution for users of DSLR’s and other astronomical imaging cameras.
