      Seestar S50 is a triplet APO (including one piece of ED glass) with excellent control of chromatic aberration. Focal ratio F5. Focal length 250mm. The imaging performance is as good as a professional refractor of the same aperture.

    Can you put this on a wedge and do basic polar alignment to improve tracking?

      Unfortunately, Seestar S50 doesn’t support EQ mode due to its limitations in guiding.

    In one place this page states that it has an equatorial mount and then further down the page it says an Alt-Azimuth mode mount. Which is it?

    Does it include the tripod? Or needs to be purchased separately?

    What is the resolution / megapixels of the sensor?
    What is the resolution of the TIFF images? Is it also 1920 * 1080?
    Or is that just for video?
    Thanks, and I wish you much success with this new product!

    1) How does the Seestar deal with field rotation?
    2) If it doesn’t use a mechanical rotator, can it function well while tilted toward the celestial pole or does it need to be fairly level?
    3) What is the range of exposure times?
    4) Is the Seestar designed to accept standard 2” filters in front of the objective or does it use proprietary filters or are there internal filters? (If internal, please list them.)
    5) Can it be used with narrowband filters?
    6) Can the Seestar be used for solar imaging?
    7) Can the Seestar be used for planetary imaging?
    8) What is the fov?
    9) How are image files saved?
    10) Does the Seestar produce .fits files that can be post-processed?

      Hi William, Seestar S50 has an aperture size of 50mm and a focal length 260mm, with a focal ratio F/5. It has Sony IMX462 sensor inside. Cooling is not added due to the short exposure time.

    Will it be possible to process the photos in any astrophotography program on the computer? Or will the phone image be the final one?… And another question, will it be compatible with the filters to reduce light pollution? This is in the event that I cannot have very dark skies…
