All-Star Telescope User Comments: In the video of the complete set-up of this unit, you may see that we used a Mac computer to operate the Orion StarShoot AutoGuider. You can use Mac or Windows with the autoguider. We recommend a laptop with long battery life to allow you a full night of imaging without needing to be connected to 110 volt power.
You supply: Camera for imaging and laptop operating autoguider program
