The LPI-G Camera perfect for those looking to make the jump into astrophotography. As an astrophotography camera, the 1.25" barrel size allows you to use it in place of your eyepiece. You'll be imaging the Moon, planets, and the Sun (with appropriate filters) in no time with the high-performance CMOS image sensor. As a guide camera, the built-in ST4 auto guider port makes for easy connection. The LPI-G is compatible with a number of guiding and image capture programs such as Maxim DL, PHD, and FireCapture.
The LPI-G comes with dedicated Meade astronomy software called Sky Capture, which allows you to record and process video, image capture and processing, as well as other features like dark field correction and image stitching.
Let the Lunar, Planetary Imager and Guider (LPI-G) unleash the inner astrophotographer in you. With our solar, lunar and planetary guide camera, experience the universe on a whole new level. Lightweight and portable, LPI-G comes with a 1280 x 960 pixel CMOS sensor with the ability of capturing 28 frames per second at full resolution.
