The Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imager III Camera houses an improved 1.3-megapixel imaging chip with greater sensitivity than its predecessor. You'll capture intricately resolved images that only the most skilled astro-imagers could achieve just a few years ago. The 1/2"-format CMOS color chip transmits a live 1280 x 1024 pixel video image to your computer.
The small 5.2micron x 5.2micron pixel size ensures exceptional resolution. Images download to your computer via a high-speed USB 2.0 cable. MaxIm DL Essentials Edition software gives you start-to-finish control over image capture, combining and processing. You can take individual shots or automatically collect multiple exposures of up to 0.5 seconds each. The software lets you instantly adjust the gain, contrast, exposure length and align and stack multiple exposures.
