New to Imaging? The NexImage Burst is a Great Choice!

Getting started with NexImage Burst is as easy as pointing your telescope at the Moon, Sun, or a planet and recording a video. For the sharpest possible images, the Celestron NexImage Burst can record more than 120 frames per second when subframed.

The included software analyzes each frame of video, throws away the ones affected by atmospheric turbulence, and perfectly aligns the best frames. The result is a bright, clear image with impressive detail.

Solar system imaging with the NexImage Burst is a great way to enjoy the hobby of astro-imaging if you live in a light-polluted area. If you can see a planet in the sky, you can image it with NexImage Burst!
