New Astronomy Cameras from Imaging Source

Astronomy photo by Mike Salway

Imaging Source has rolled out a new series of affordable low noise astronomy cameras for amateur astro-photographers. The company says these cameras are designed to capture high quality images of the night sky. The imaging unit attaches to the eyepiece of a powerful telescope to do that; it comes with its own software.

Monochrome and color models are available with and without an IR cut filter in three resolutions: 640×480, 1024×768 and 1280×960. The astronomy cameras deploy low noise CCD chips from Sony, which have an exposure time of up to 60 minutes and a maximum frame rate of up to 60 fps.

The astronomy cameras are available worldwide from an international network of dealers. Prices start at $350.
