Meade LPI-G Color Lunar Planetary Imager and Guider



With this small, lightweight Meade solar, lunar and planetary guide camera, you will experience the universe on a whole new level. The Meade LPI-GC comes with a 1/3" AR130 color CMOS imaging sensor that is manufactured by ON Semiconductor. It sports an image array of 1280 x 960 with a pixel size of 3.75 microns square. The LPI-G can capture 28 frames per second at full resolution, and 30 fps at 640 x 480.



When you use the Meade LPI-G as an imaging camera, you'll be taking one-shot color pictures of the Moon, planets, and Sun (with appropriate filters) in no time! Its machined 1.25" nosepiece is threaded to accept filters, and easily connects to a 1.25" focuser or adapter...just like a 1.25" eyepiece. There are no batteries to worry about, and no external power supply is required. Just plug the Meade LPI-G into your computer with the included USB 2.0 cable and use the included Sky Capture software to do image capture or record and process video.



The Meade LPI-G also makes a great guide camera, and is compatible with a number of guiding and imaging programs such as Maxim DL, PHD, and FireCapture. The included ST-4 cable is compatible with a wide variety of mounts.



Minimum requirements for Sky Capture:



  • Operating System: Windows (32 & 64 bit) Vista/XP/7/8/10, Mac OSX, Linux

  • Processor: Intel Core2 2.8 GHz equivalent or higher

  • Memory: 2GB or higher


*NOTE* If imaging the Sun is important to you, we recommend you purchase the monochrome version of the LPI-G. Your results will be higher in resolution and you will be able to capture finer details. When you process the images, you can add some color to the images if you want a realistic look. However, whichever camera you decide on, remember to stay safe and protect yourself and your equipment by using the appropriate solar filter.
