Home Astro-Imaging CCD & CMOS Cameras Celestron CCD Cameras Celestron Skyris 132C CMOS Colour Camera
Designed and engineered in Germany by The Imaging Source, the leader in high-end planetary imaging, in collaboration with Celestron engineers in California. Powered by SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology, Skyris transfers data at the fastest possible speeds. Features the Aptina AR0132 CMOS imaging sensor, a state-of-the-art chip used by imaging companies worldwide. The worlds top planetary imagers, including Christopher Go, beta-tested and use Skyris cameras.Celestron Partners with The Imaging SourceFor years, The Imaging Source has produced astronomical cameras known for quality, performance, and value, elevating planetary imaging from a casual hobby into an art form. Now, The Imaging Source design team in Germany has joined forces with Celestrons engineers in California to create the Skyris line.
Skyris combines the unmatched expertise of The Imaging Source, with Celestrons innovative industrial design. And of course, its backed by Celestrons world-class product support and 2-year warranty. Whether you're an advanced user or a beginner, you'll love creating beautiful astroimages with these easy-to-use cameras. Capture the Sun, Moon, and planets like never before and create crisp, high-resolution images.More Data, Faster with USB 3.0 and Lightning-Fast ReadoutSkyris is capable of super-fast image download thanks to USB 3.0 connections. Even more impressive, Skyris CMOS sensor is capable of capturing up to 200 frames per second when subframed on planets. Or image the full 1.2 megapixel 1/3-inch sensor at 60 frames per secondgreat for lunar and solar imaging.Ultra-Sensitive Aptina AR0132 CMOS SensorCMOS technology is emerging as the hottest thing in imaging, and Aptinas AR0132 sensor leads the way. This updated version of the popular MT9M034 sensor offers the perfect combination of speed, sensitivity, and value. Youll get results that rival those of more expensive cameras, at a price thats well suited to the budding astroimager.Skyris 132C is a one-shot color camera, allowing you to capture full-color images instantly. There's no need to image the same target multiple times to capture different colors. You also won't need to invest in filters and a filter wheel.Skyris also features a Celestron-designed camera body, which helps dissipate heat to minimize the effect of thermal noise on the CCD. Skyris cameras do not have an optical window, which makes cleaning your camera easier and ensures maximum light transmission with no risk of internal reflections.A Complete Imaging SolutionAll Skyris cameras include Celestron iCap capture software and stacking software (for Windows systems only). This software suite allows you to easily control the camera, capture, and export your images or movie files. Next, youll filter your images and stack the best shots to create your masterpiece.With a 1.25" nosepiece and 10' USB 3.0 cable included, Skyris has everything you need to get started with lunar, solar, or planetary imaging.Using Skyris as an AutoguiderSkyris cameras also make excellent autoguiders. If used with a Celestron mount, Skyris connects as a DirectShow device or WDM-style webcam. Just plug the hand control into the supplied serial cable using an optional USB to RS-232 Adapter. Skyris works with popular software like MaxIm DL or freeware like PHD Guiding. Or, plug the camera into the ST-4 autoguider port on select non-Celestron mounts, turning your Skyris into a high-end autoguider.SPECIFICATIONS Imaging Sensor: Aptina AR0132Weight: 3.6 ozBack Focus Distance: 19mm with nosepiece, 17.5mm with C-mountMounting: 1.25" barrel and C-threadSoftware Compatibility: iCap, IC Capture, DirectShow, FireCaptureSub-Framing: SelectablePower Requirements: Powered by USBUSB Connection: High-speed 3.0, 10' cable length
