Orion StarShoot USB Eyepiece Camera II - 52183

The Orion StarShoot USB Eyepiece Camera is a fun and useful USB Eyepiece Camera that allows you to transmit the real-time views through your telescope to a laptop or PC. This means that observers can capture great digital movies and images. The great part is that you can share the views of bright planets, the Moon, and terrestrial targets through your telescope with friends, family, and fellow astronomy enthusiasts!

This camera is not sensitive enough for deep space astrophotography, but lunar and planetary shots come out great. The camera fits into any 1.25" telescope focuser or 2"-to-1.25" step-down adapter. This versatile astrophotography tool works great with motorized mounts, non-motorized mounts, and even works with telescopes outfitted for terrestrial use! Why stop at the night sky when this Orion StarShoot camera can provide great images of the land and sky during the day or night?

Features

This Eyepiece camera has a CMOS sensor chip with 8-bit output and RGB 24-bit color resolution. The 1.25" nosepiece is threaded so observers can use any Orion 1.25" eyepiece filter to enhance the celestial views with different types of filters, such as a Moon filter, a light pollution filter, color planetary filters, and many more (filters sold separately). The StarShoot Eyepiece Camera II is also compatible with the Orion SharShoot 0.5x Focal Reducer (sold separately), for those who would like to widen their field of view.

This camera can capture up to 24 frames per second at its native resolution of 640x480 pixels. The progressive scan imaging of this camera means that every pixel's information is sent to your computer! The color CMOS sensor features a small 5.6µ x 5.6µ pixels for a better resolution on those bright objects.

The StarShoot USB Eyepiece camera is powered by the USB connection to the computer.

It includes Orion AmCap image video capture software - compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8 Operating Systems
