Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging
- Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera is an afforadable astrophotgraphy camera that delivers stunning images with a telescope.
- Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera features a " format CCD sensor an on-board thermoelectric cooler (TEC).
- Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera has high tech features such as a regulated thermoelectric cooling, on-board fan and 16-bit A/D conversion.
- Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera with its ST-4 output built right in allows for high performance, low noise autoguiding.
- Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera includes Orion Camera Studio software for easy processing, sharing and capturing of astro-images.
The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera enables you to take superb, 16-bit pictures of deep space phenomena without breaking the bank. This third generation affordable, entry-level Orion StarShoot Deep Space Imaging Camera allows you to take magnificent astrophotos and is ideal for amateur astronomers starting out in astrophotography.
The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera has been redesigned offering performance enhancing features and software that were other wise reserved for more expensive CCD imagers. Built around the popular Sony interline ICX419AKL color CCD chip, which boasts a 752 x 582 pixel array with sensitive, 8.6 micron by 8.3 micron pixels, the StarShoot G3 is capable of detecting fine details in celestial objects. This bigger, 1/2" format CCD sensor usually isn't available in cameras priced as low as the StarShoot G3, and it provides a much larger imaging field of view than cameras equipped with 1/3" format chips so you can shoot more sky in far less time.
The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera features regulated thermoelectric cooling (TEC) and is the only camera in its price range to do so. The thermoelectric cooling enables accurate dark frame acquisition which signigicantly improves astrophoto quality and also reduces noise. Because the thermoelectric cooling is typically only seen amongst pricier cameras, this enhancement makes the StarShoot G3 an amazing value. The on-board TEC can cool the StarShoot G3 to a brisk 10 degrees Celsius below ambient temperature so that noise is minimized in dark frames and exposures. Assisting the TEC is a small, vibration free fan that removes warm air and further optimizes imaging results.
The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera has a subframe downloading feature that enables speedier results in approximately 2 seconds. The StarShoot G3 has a wide exposure range to help you take extensive exposures of wispy deep space objects. The imaging software included with the StarShoot G3 makes it easy amongst the whole astrophotography process. From saving results, processing images, then sharing with friends and family, the complete astrophotography software delivers. ASCOM drivers are included as well and enable use with popular image processing programs.
The versatile Orion StarShoot G3 can also be used as a dedicated autoguider, with a direct ST-4 output conveniently built right into the camera body. Use the StarShoot G3 as a high-performance, low-noise 16-bit CCD autoguider with a high-end CCD imaging camera or DSLR attached to your imaging telescope for especially accurate tracking and precise results. Included ASCOM drivers allow you to use your choice of autoguiding software with the StarShoot G3, such as PHD Guiding, when using the camera as an autoguider. Autoguiding software is not included with the Orion StarShoot G3 Color Deep Space Imaging Camera.
For easy attachment to virtually any telescope focuser, the Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera comes with a removable 1.25" nosepiece. You can easily enhance your images because the nosepiece is threaded for use with 1.25" Orion imaging filter. If you choose to remove the 1.25" nosepiece you will then have a built-in 2" nosepiece with T-threads for secure coupling of the camera to your imaging telescope and/or astrophotography accessories.
The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera takes up little space due to its 3.4" in diameter with a depth of 1.85". It's small size makes it possible to use Fastar and Hyperstar imaging systems. The StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera weighs roughly 12 ounces. The included USB 2.0 connection and 10' USB cable help connect your deep space camera to your computer. A 10' auto-lighter power cable is also included to provide 12V DC power to the on-board cooling TEC when needed. The USB 2.0 connection provides enough power to the camera for non-cooled operation or for use as an autoguider. External power is only required for TEC operation.
The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera is one of the most affordable Orion16-bit, cooled CCD imaging camera and is amongst the best, affordable imaging cameras in the market today.
