Meade Deep Sky Imager IV Colour Astrophotography Camera for telescopes with 12 bit processing and 16 mp sensor and boasts a high frame rrate of 23 per second and works on MAC and PC. Meade's Deep Sky Imager IV! This 12-bit camera was designed to enhance your astrophotography experience like never before. The 2-stage signal to noise ratio greatly reduces thermal noise, allowing you to take long exposed pictures of galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters with your telescope.
The acclaimed Deep Sky Imager (DSI) camera series is better than ever, and its more advanced than ever. Equipped with a 16MP Panasonic CMOS image sensor, regulated two-stage thermoelectric cooler, and 3.8µm pixels, the new DSI IV is the ideal camera for all of your astrophotography pursuits. The low-noise, high-resolution and fast USB 3.0 readout make this camera suitable for both deep-sky and planetary imaging, making it one of the most versatile astronomy cameras available.
The DSI IV offers immense value beyond the camera itself. It not only comes with its own high-quality, weather-resistant hard carrying case, but weve included a new version of SkyCapture camera control software. With complete camera control for all major operating systems including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, SkyCapture can run automatic image capture sequences without the need to purchase additional software.
