The MGEN Autoguider not only uses small pixels (4.7µm) but also a unique algorithm of unrivaled accuracy of 1/50 pixel for guiding. The algorithm is develeoped by a hungarian professor for artificial intelligence (AI). No other device comes even close to that accuracy - it's outstanding and unique.
The MGEN Autoguider offers the Random Displacement command. The Teleskope is moved between exposures for just a few pixel, thus resulting in hotpixels to disappear and lower general noise when adding (stacking) multiple exposures. Using MGENs random displacement function increases overall image quality, it can even make dark frames obsolete!
The MGEN Autoguider directly controls your DSLRs exposure series. No remote control release necessary. You can even control CCD Cameras exposures by software.
MGENs Sensor (Sony ICX279AL-E) is very sensitive. You can easily guide on 11mag faint stars at 1sec exposure time. . Even 12mag stars are possible - at a field of 1.5° diagonal!
Setting up your mount and make a very accurate polar alignment in just a few minutes with a digital application of the Scheiner Method (drift alignment). By measuring the stars drift, the MGEN Autoguider calculates the misalignment and you can easily correct it using the built in display (live view). Thats especially important for portable (travel) mounts where good polar alignment often is tricky to achieve.

MGEN is compatible with a number of applications:
MGEN can be used stand alone (without any computer, just handcontrol) or remote in observatory mode by a remote PC via USB connection. Even On / Off switch is remote manageable.
The GUI is available in these languages:
