The NexImage 5 Solar System Imager (5MP) from Celestron
is a 5 megapixel color sensor that not only allows you to capture still
images of your celestial subjects on a computer but also boasts the
ability to view and capture live video as well. A small pixel size
provides sub arc-second planetary detail with most telescopes and the
Micron DigitalClarity technology reduces image noise levels. The
included software automatically filters out video frames that have been
the most affected by poor atmospheric seeing and leaves only the
sharpest, clearest frames to be stacked and aligned into one high
quality image. The software also delivers the ability to manually change
the gain, contrast, exposure time, frame rate and color saturation of
the camera through the computer. It has a machined aluminum 1.25"
adapter barrel that accepts standard 1.25" eyepiece filters. The camera
body has integrated C-threads affording direct threaded connection to
the telescope. The optical window has been IR-cut for greater precision
and there is a selectable "region of interest" for sub-framing. The
NexImage 5 has 2x2 and 4x4 binning capability, progressive scanning and
includes a high speed USB 2.0 cable.
