    I have a STT-8300 and purchased a RGH for remote guiding. Since then I bought a 10 Micron mount and no longer need to guide.

    I'm selling the RGH and Guide Kit and was wondering if the RGH can be used as a standalone guide camera (i.e. without an Aluma, STT, STX, STXL camera).
    Would it just need an HDMI to USB adapter connected to a PC?

    Thank you,
    Nick

    No, it is not a standalone camera. The guide head includes minimal electronics. Most of the electronics are inside the main camera.

    Hi Doug,
    That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the quick response!

    Regards,
