The Meade Instruments 16MP Monochrome Deep Sky Imager IV
is a high-resolution digital imaging system that allows you to capture
monochrome images by itself, or attach single or stacked astronomical
filters for custom-colored 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 monochrome 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.
