Moravian G0 and G1 cameras use Sony ICX CCD detectors with progressive read. All models are available in both monochrome and colour versions. The camera is powered via USB so does not need additional power. Standard ST4 Guide port allows the camera to directly control a telescope mount. Physical appearance of G0 cameras is similar to an ordinary 1.25" eyepiece. G0  cameras are very compact, lightweight and easy to operate. The user only needs to insert it into a telescope focuser / visual back, plug the USB cable into the computer and it works. Sensitivity is an important feature of any guider. It must provide images of guiding star(s) with sufficient S/N ratio in rather short time to ensure perfect guiding. The necessity to accumulate light for many tens of seconds or even minutes is often unacceptable for high quality guideing. G0 cameras offer a round body, which is more compact compared to the G1 series, which could be important e.g. in combination with Off-Axis Guider etc.
