The Meade Instruments 16MP Color Deep Sky Imager IV
is a high-resolution digital imaging system that allows you to capture
full-color images through a 2" focuser, visual back, or other
accessories like Barlows or diagonals. M42x0.75 threads allow it to be
mounted on a variety of imaging accessories. Images are captured using a
4/3" 16MP imaging sensor and sent directly to your Windows or Mac
computer running the included SkyCapture imaging software via the fast
USB 3.0 connection. It is also backward compatible with USB 2.0, but
download speeds will be slower. The fast download speed of USB 3.0
allows you to gather more images in less time, which is critical if the
weather and atmospheric conditions are fluctuating and you have limited
time for imaging. Whether you're looking at the Moon, Mars, or the rings
of Saturn, the color DSI-IV takes your view of the sky and makes it
available for everyone to see.
Meade recommends that you use a
motorized mount for capturing clear and steady images. Out of the box
it is compatible with larger 2" focusers to pass the maximum amount of
light for capturing dim subjects, and to ensure full coverage of the
large sensor and avoid vignetting. For use in Cassegrain-style scopes,
an M42 thread allows it to be attached directly onto the visual back.
The included software for Windows and Mac lets you control the camera,
snap pictures or create a movie file, and export them. An integrated
stacking program in SkyCapture lets you automatically filter the best
images and stack them to create the perfect composite celestial picture.
