Yankee Robotics Trifid Nugget Autoguider

The Trifid Nugget is designed for auto-guiding. It comes in a very small package that is ideal for use with an off-axis guider or guide telescope where space is limited. The Nugget has a high quantum efficiency imaging chip, relay outputs for telescope control; MaxIm/DL and CCDSoft drivers are included.

The Nugget connects to the host computer with a USB 2.0 port. It is powered from the USB bus and it includes a USB 2.0 router. This means that you bring a single USB cable up to the Nugget and it is fully functional without an external power cable. The Nugget also has a USB 2.0 host port to connect to the Trifid Gold or other USB 2.0 device. This means that you can connect two cameras with a single USB cable run through the telescope mount.

HST 20x i-Explore Stereo Microscope

This 20x stereo microscope is designed specifically for kids! Find an object around the house or yard, place it on the stage, and your child will be exploring up-close instantly without slides or mess. The binocular head is more enjoyable for kids to use, as they can keep both eyes open, plus the stereo feature provides a 3-D image. The rounded focus knob is sized just right for smaller hands and makes focusing simple. While designed for kids, this stereo microscope is not a toy: it features optical glass paired widefield 10x eyepieces and 2x objective lenses that provide sharp, clear images. The built-in bright LED-illumination is powered by two AA batteries (not included) so there are no cords and this microscope can be used anywhere indoors or out.
