Product description

Touptek monochrome guide camera

Planetary imaging and guiding camera from Touptek - the key to successful planetary photos

The Touptek 1200 is a highly sensitive planetary camera which can turn you into a successful planetary photographer. The heart of this camera is a sensitive and low-noise CMOS chip. An optimal launching pad for sharp and high-resolution planetary imaging. But this camera can also be used to guide via a guide star.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • highly sensitive Aptina Chip
  • large field of view and high 1.2 MP resolution
  • perfect tracking for astronomy photos - ST 4 autoguider port
  • software and drivers on CD-Rom
  • C-mount connection
  • up to 30 frames per second

Large field of view and high resolution

With a resolution of 1280x960 pixels, you can plot a course directly to the planets in our solar system. The wide field of view is ideal for sharp and wide-scale images of the lunar surface. Unlike normal entry-level cameras, this camera offers a much larger chip area.

A master among autoguiders

The sensitivity of the chip means this camera is perfect for autoguiding. Even if you can only find fainter stars in the immediate vicinity, it is simply no problem for the Touptek 1200. Just connect the camera to your mount via the built-in ST-4 port and you immediately have perfectly tracked exposures of galaxies and nebulae.

  • Live Image function

  • Intel Core 2, 2.8GHz, 2GB memory, USB 2.0

Along with the camera, the drivers and cables required are included - to complete this convenient package.

Our expert comment:

Software download: TOUPTEK Software

For Autoguiding, we recommend the free and open source guiding software PHD2. ToupTek cameras now work natively with PHD2 without the need for ASCOM drivers. (when using Windows and since PHD2 version v2.6.6 or v2.6.5dev6)
