Celestron NexImage 10 Colour Solar System Imager Camera

Celestron NexImage 10 Colour Solar System Imager Camera

$369.99

The NexImage 10 CMOS camera is great for live viewing or photographing the Planets and Lunar features. This CMOS camera replaces the eyepiece, and produces color image stills through single-frame or multi-frame stacking.

The NexImage 10 features a USB 3.0 port, allowing the massive sensor to transfer all of its data very quickly. Extra-small pixels maximize the resolution, ensuring planetary detail is retained at short focal lengths.

Simply point your telescope at the Moon or a planet and record a quick video. The software analyzes each frame of video, throws away the fuzzy ones, and perfectly aligns the remaining images. The result is a bright, clear image with the maximum amount of color and detail. NexImage 10 is a great way to get started with astroimaging, especially if you live in a light-polluted area. If you can see the planet in the sky, you can image it with NexImage 10!
