LVI SMARTGUIDER

R6500

SETTING A NEW STANDARD IN AUTOGUIDING

The LVI SmartGuider is an innovative, stand-alone autoguiding camera whose advanced built-in logic allows correction for all tracking errors of any equatorial mount equipped with a standard ST4 autoguider port. Unlike other guiders on the market, the LVI SmartGuider is a stand-alone unit that interfaces directly with your guidescope and mount, no PC required. The Control Paddle features a wide graphical display, which enables the user to constantly monitor the tracking performance and fine-tune all of the guiding corrections sent to the mount. It also has a set of easy to navigate menus for fine tuning all the camera parameters (both standard and advanced), which make the LVI SmartGuider suitable for all applications, even the most demanding.

NO NEED FOR A LAPTOP

Not having to use a laptop for autoguiding carries a number of advantages:

1.
 
For all those who don't really need a PC (e.g. as is the case with traditional film or DSLR imaging), the benefit is twofold: you save on PC hardware cost and on the energy needed to power it.
 
2.
 
CCD users can benefit as well, as the use of the stand-alone LVI SmartGuider greatly reduces the performance overhead on the PC. This is very convenient especially with resource-hungry setups where the PC is already under heavy load (e.g. with big multiple-megapixel CCDs, electrical focusers, motorized filter wheels, etc.). This also significantly lowers the chance of dangerous operating systems crashes.
 
3.
 
As the LVI SmartGuider is sensitive enough to find a suitable guide star anywhere in the whole sky with exposure times of around 1 second, you can also save on the cost of a micrometric guidescope support, needed to scan the "celestial neighborhood" in case a sufficiently bright star cannot be found in the field of view.

TOTALLY INDEPENDENT OF THE SOFTWARE

Using the LVI SmartGuider ensures that you will never have to wrestle with device drivers under Windows, and that it will never fail you, even with setups you have never used before.

VERY EASY TO BE USED!

TheLVI SmartGuider camera is very easy and fun to use!
Now anyone can start his fascinating journey into the realm of astronomical photography, without having to buy overly complicated autoguiding cameras, or to look through hundreds of boring manual pages to learn how to tweak every single parameter. LVI has made the astrophotographer's life so much easier, everything is just a click of a button away!

THE MAKERS OF THE LVI SMARTGUIDER

 

A NEW, ALL-ITALIAN BRAND: LVI

The birth of this new brand was made possible only by marrying the research-oriented technological know-how of Microgiga together with Paolo Lazzarotti's 10-plus year experience as an avid astroimager.
