The SBIG AO-8T Adaptive Optic is designed for the STT Camera Series. It requires the FW8G-STT Filter Wheel or STT Remote Guide Head and OAG to operate the AO-8T. This is the same AO as the model AO-8 with a different back plate to match the STT Camera series hole patters. If you already have an AO-8, it can be converted to an AO-8T by changing just the back plate.
• The AO-8T and AO-X are third and fourth generation adaptive optics systems from SBIG specifically designed to enable an SBIG camera user to obtain the ultimate in image resolution that his/her telescope and site can achieve. The AO-8T is designed for the STT Series cameras. The AO-X is designed for the STXL and STX series cameras. Both of these units get power and commands directly from the camera via a short cable to camera's I2C port. No other external cables are required for power or control. Both units have an I2C output port as well so they are fully compatible with other I2C accessories that you might add to the system such as a filter wheel.
