The Skyris line of cameras allows you to capture crisp, high resolution images of the moon, sun, and planets like never before. With industry leading Sony Super HAD technology the Skyris gives astroimagers an edge in the field! This is the first camera that incorporates USB 3.0 high speed connections and Celestron's proprietary camera body design which helps dissipate heat and minimize thermal noise.

Sony CCD Sensor:

The Sony Super HAD ICX274 CCD sensor is perfect for planetary imaging because of it's speed, sensitivity, pixel size, and chip size. The Skyris 274M delivers 20 frames per second which allows you to capture more data in less time and capture brief moments of stable air (hence good "seeing") to ensure crisp image rendering.

Celestron Skyris Monochrome:

The Skyris 274M is a monochrome camera that offers the most sensitivity, so you can capture the best possible monochrome images instantly. Either use the camera by itself to capture stunning black & white images of the Moon and planets, or attach your own filters and filter wheel to create your own color planetary images. This monochrome camera offers you increased sensitivity and the flexibility to image Solar System objects the way you want.

Celestron Skyris Software:

All Skyris cameras include Celestron iCap capture software and stacking software, for Windows systems only. This iCap software allows you to easily control the camera, snap your images or movie file, and export them. Next, you'll bring your images or movies into the stacking software, where you can automatically filter the best images and stack them to create your masterpiece.
