More about the Orion StarShoot G10 Color Camera

The CMOS Sensor

The StarShoot G10 features a one-shot CMOS chip. This chip excels in seeing very faint celestial objects in short exposure. It also offers adjustable gain so that astro imagers can boost the sensitivity in any given exposure. With this incredible feature, imagers can stack multiple short exposures and worry less about guiding problems or satellites and airplanes ruining the shot.

USB Interface

This Deep Space color imaging camera comes with a USB 3.0 interface. This interface provides extremely fast frame rates and downloads. This camera is compatible with Windows 7/8/10 through the USB 3.0 connection. The power of the camera electronics comes through the same USB interface. The TE cooler, on the other hand, is powered by the included AC adapter.

The StarShoot G10 has a standard t-threaded front opening, but it also includes a 2" nozzle. This means that astro imagers can attach the G10 camera to almost all telescope configurations. This includes coma correctors, flatteners, and off-axis guiders. It also has a two-port USB 2.0 hub where filter wheels and guidescope cameras can be wired to the G10 camera. This means less headache! Now observers only need the one USB cable connected to a laptop.

Even better, the G10 is ASCOM compatible, allowing imagers to use most of the astro imaging software on the market to unlock the full potential of the StarShoot imaging camera!
