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.
