Guiding Camera

Intensified CCD camera
A field of 4' X 4' north from the field of the object can be imaged and displayed in real time on a TV monitor for finding a convenient star for guiding purposes. There is a gradient on the brightness on the monitor, in order to find a star on the darker side, it is convenient to change the contrast of the screen. The guiding cross box should be with the coordinates display at the lowest level of brightness, because there is a resistance that heats up and produces that the guiding cross on the monitor blinks or distorts.
