Start now with digital astrophotography and capture the Sky with the brand new BRESSER Full HD Deep-Sky Camera with Autoguider. That´s absolutely new: Great camera for multiple types of astro imaging and for guiding. Not only suitable for planets but also for deep-sky objects like galaxies, nebulae and clusters. Dedicated astro imaging software ToupSky to support video preview, video record, video processing, image capture and process, dark field correction and raw data output. Easy to use but with tools of the professionals.
One of the main characteristics of the new back-illuminated SONY IMX290 CMOS sensor is the high sensitivity to light which makes it possible to capture also deep-sky objects without active cooling. SONY has increased the quantum efficiency up to 77% at 533nm wavelength which is much better than other CEMOS sensors could achieve in the past.
Connect this camera with the build-in ST-4 port direct to your telescope mount and take pictures also with long exposures times of several minutes. Now you have always a suitable guiding star available because of the extra light-sensitve camera also at short exposure times. ST-4 connecting cable is also included. Easy automatic tracking at it´s best.
You can use this camera with any guiding-telescopes or off-axis-guider which accept a 1,25“ barrel, 1,25“ filter thread (M28.5×0.6) or c-mount adapter thread (1“x1/32“).
- This is not a stand-alone guider-camera. You always need a Windows 7 / 8 / 10 computer for taking pictures and for autoguiding.
- The autoguider software is not included. You can use PHD Guiding, Guidedog, Metaguide, Guidemaster (Freeware) or AstroArt, MaxIm DL (chargeable).
