    The new STX Guider is now shipping!

    Attached directly to the front of the FW7-STX or FW5-STX filter wheel, the STX Guider converts the wheel into a self-guiding system. It consumes only 3/4" of back focus, requires no adapters, and weighs just 1 lb. It is fully compatible with the AO-X adaptive optics accessory.

    Please see https://www.sbig.com/products/filter-wheels/stx-guider/ for more information.

    We're getting reports back from happy customers who are successfully using their STX Guiders!

    A quick note - there has been a little confusion about whether the STX Guider is compatible with the AO-X. Yes it is! You simply remove the back plate of the AO-X, then stack up the filter wheel, STX Guider, and the plate, and attach the three units together using the supplied screws.
