Monochrome astronomy camera for lunar and planetary photography, but also suitable for deep sky exposures with high resolution and low-noise CMOS sensor - high detail resolution with 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.

In addition to the camera and the adapters, a USB cable, an ST4 auto-guider cable and a CD with drivers for PC, Mac, Linux are also included.
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
