This high resolution deep sky camera incorporates a large 'Sony Exmor IMX428 CMOS' sensor and active cooling and is ideal for telescopes with short and moderate focal lengths.

The Explore Scientific 7.1MP Astro camera comes in a modern complete package for the comfortable imaging of a wide range of night sky targets. This easy-to-use camera is ideal for capturing galaxies, star clusters, the moon and even planets with an extremely high sensor sensitivity and very low sensor noise. The high sensitivity enables very short exposure times and the freezing of the air turbulence (seeing) in planetary images. Thanks to the fast USB 3.0 computer interface, all image data is transferred to your storage device within seconds.

Simply connect the camera to your telescope using the T2 female thread (M42.0.75mm) or the supplied 2" (50.8mm) plug-in adapter and after installing the drivers and the included Explore Capture recording and editing software, you are ready to start imaging.

The Explore Capture pro software included, not only offers the basic functions required for imaging and video capture, but also many helpful special functions for image post-processing and camera setup. Functions such as live image display, exposure settings, white balance, dark image print, stacking, time lapse recording and much more can be configured individually. This sophisticated software makes your entry into astrophotography much easier and using the automatic default settings you can produce stunning results without any previous knowledge.

The Explore Scientific deep sky camera has a highly sensitive and very low-noise Sony Exmor IMX428 CMOS sensor which is additionally cooled down to 40°C below ambient temperature by the two-stage thermoelectric cooling. In contrast to normal DSLR cameras, this guarantees much lower noise and fewer hot pixels in your shots. The images are not only much sharper and more detailed, but also contain more usable signal information. As this camera is cooled, you can carry out your dark and bias frame calibrations at any time. The large-format CMOS sensor with 17.6mm diagonal also allows large image fields and makes framing objects so much easier.

The camera has a built-in USB hub with 2 x USB2.0 ports at the rear. Connect your additional auto guider camera or motor focus etc. via a short USB cable and reduce the risk of cable spaghetti and cable breaks. Separate cable connections between your accessories and your computer are no longer necessary. To protect the camera when not in use, a sturdy hard case is also included.
