Images in real time on your screen
Everything live - this camera will display a live image of the Moon, planets or objects under the microscope. You can see it all using Live View mode on your PC screen and also save the images. Even larger groups can watch with you in comfort - such as school classes or just the neighbours in the garden.
Fast CMOS chip with 30 frames / second
There is a 640x480 pixel CMOS chip inside which sends ultra-fast images of your objects - at 30 frames per second! That means sharper images than would be possible with individual exposures when doing planetary photography - guaranteeing that even your first images will be worth showing.
