What is an autoguider?

AutoGuider

Many telescopes come equipped with ports to plug in your own AutoGuider control and software. Some systems, such as many of the Celestron models, come with AutoGlider software and controllers already installed. AutoGlider technology tracks objects for you, so you don't have to manually reconfigure the telescope every few minutes. Some even allow you to guide your telescope from your PC. It makes viewing the night sky a lot more fun!
