what is involved in an 'auto-guider' for a camera


There a few ways of doing it, but in essence a camera takes a view of the stars and sends it back to a laptop or processes it locally, auto guiding software then monitors the movement of the star and nudges the telescope or main camera mount in the appropriate direction, to keep the selected star in the same position in the field of view.

One of the most common pieces of software in use is free - PHD2 Guiding

Here is an example of a standalone camera with dedicated guide scope that you attach to the main scope: Orion Camera Magnificent Mini AutoGuider Set Other methods involve putting a splitter prism in the primary optical train and taking a camera feed from there etc.
