Designed for beginning and advanced imagers alike, each of the six color and monochromatic Skyris models reveals the solar system from a completely new perspective, allowing you to create stunning planetary images in crisp, high resolution. Superior internal components—including Sony® EXview HAD™ imaging sensors and high-speed USB 3.0 connections—result in great camera sensitivity with ultra-fast image capture. Powered by The Imaging Source. Capture more exposures in less time to record moments of the most stable air, resulting in the best image quality. Finally, the dynamic 12-bit image output dramatically outranges the 8-bit output of standard planetary CCDs. It’s all surrounded by Celestron’s carefully engineered external camera housing, designed for improved heat dissipation to minimize the temperature effect on CCD noise. Includes Celestron iCap software and stacking software (for Windows) aid with capturing, filtering, aligning, stacking, and exporting your best images.
