Features the Aptina AR0132 CMOS imaging sensor, a state-of-the-art chip used by imaging companies worldwide. View and capture live video of the Sun, Moon, and planets on your computer.
Available now - Capture high resolution 5MP planetary, lunar and solar images. Combined with the included software package, NexImage 5MP can bring out tremendous detail and produce images that will rival those taken with astronomical cameras costing hundreds more.
Celestron's fastest camera for colour and monochromatic planetary imaging with long focal-length telescopes like Schmidt-Cassegrain and the EdgeHD series.
The celestron Skris series of cameras are the result of a marriage between Celestron and Imaging Source and feature quality components and high performance including Sony imaging sensors, high-speed USB 3.0 connections and 12-bit image output that out-performs regular 8-bit images provided by standard planetary CCDs.
The external camera housing has also been redesigned by Celestron for improved heat dissipation, minimising the temperature effect on CCD noise.
Skyris combines the unmatched expertise of The Imaging Source, with Celestron’s innovative industrial design. And of course, it’s backed by Celestron’s world-class product support and 2-year warranty. Whether you're an advanced user or a beginner, you'll love creating beautiful astroimages with these easy-to-use cameras. Capture the Sun, Moon, and planets like never before and create crisp, high-resolution images.
You have your new telescope and have observed Saturn and Jupiter. Now you're ready to take the next step and start imaging them. But where do you begin? The Celestron NexImage 10 Solar System Imager is the perfect solution.
CMOS technology is emerging as the hottest thing in imaging, and SONY’S EXMOR IMX236 sensor leads the way. Twice as sensitive in the near-infrared as the IMX136, the IMX236 offers the perfect combination of speed, sensitivity, and value.
Celestron NightScape CCD Camera (10.7MP)
Nightscape CCD camera combines the simplicity of a one-shot color imaging camera with the sophisticated features and software of more expensive astronomical imaging systems. Using a Kodak 10.7MP Color Sensor and regulated TEC cooling system, Nightscape can give you instant results in just a single exposure. Coupled with the internal mechanical shutter and control software you can also automatically combine multiple images and dark frames to create images comparable to those taken with professional grade cameras costing thousands more.
Quick Overview of Celestron Nightscape 8300 CCD Camera
Uses the famous KAF-8300 CCD that imagers have grown to love, due to the high resolution, low noise, great sensitivity and affordable cost.
Nightscape 8300 is the most affordable feature-rich KAF-8300 camera readily available, retaining all of the advanced features found in more expensive cameras to obtain stunning astrophotos.
A large 22.5mm diagonal CCD chip offers 8.3 megapixels of resolution. That means capturing a larger swatch of the sky with greater detail than similarly priced CCD cameras.
