Welcome, the first picture is a lnbf, lnbf and feedhorn all in one. The second picture is only a lnb, it needs to be bolted onto a feedhorn to be able to use it.

The third picture looks to be a orthomode feed with a Ku and a C band lnb on it, that will receive both Ku and C bands. It will also need extra equipment, such as a ASC1 controller to switch polarities though.

The first one, the Titanium one, would be the easiest to get setup and running. That one is a good lnbf but is c band only, but it won't need anything other than a receiver to use it, unlike the others in your pictures.

That's not an ortho,it's a corotor,note the little blue motor.

Ah, you're right! An ortho wouldn't need a ASC1 because it doesn't have the servo for polarity. Meant Corotor, thanks for catching that.

Forgot to mention too that besides a ASC1 for controlling the polarity servo, he would also need a switch for swapping between the two lnbs if he uses the Corotor.
