Product description:

This colour camera is suitable for lunar and planetary exposures, but also for deep sky photography. This is ensured by the use of fast USB 3.0 and a low noise CMOS sensor.
The 21.9mm sensor diagonal and small 3.8ìm pixel size, means the camera has both high resolution and a wide field of view.

The camera comes equipped with an AR clear glass filter and is hence also transparent in the infrared spectrum. A corresponding cutting filter is required if the infrared range is to be blocked.

The camera and accessories permit many adaptation options - 1.25", 2" or T2 (M42x0.75). The distance between the T2 connection thread and camera sensor is 17.5 millimetres.

Colour or mono? Black and white cameras have the advantage of higher sensitivity and resolution than colour cameras. However, more effort is required to obtain a colour image. You also need colour filters and a filter wheel
