  1. Meade LPI-G Monochrome Camera

    Meade LPI-G Monochrome Camera

    The Meade LPI-G Monochrome Camera delivers 1280x960 resolution for Solar System imaging and a rock solid frame per second rate (buffered for no dropped frames) to ensure maximum efficient use of your imaging time. While not as immediate as its colour sibling - requiring tricolour filtration in order to build colour images - it is more sensitive and has the capability of using all of its 1.2 Mega Pixels per channel if used for tricolour imaging, ultimately leading to sharper, more detailed final images. Like the colour version of of the LPI-G, this camera has a built-in ST-4 protocol port for Autoguiding purposes (PC only), but the Meade Sky Capture imaging software supplied with this camera will work with not just PCs (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10), but also Mac OSX and Linux too - making it a truly universal cross platform system. The Meade LPI-Gs are, of course, also compatible with all the regular favourite control and capture apps, including Sharpcap, Firecapture and Maxim DL. Learn More

  3. Altair GPCAM2 IMX290 Colour Camera

    Altair GPCAM2 IMX290 Colour Camera

    Although slower in terms of transfer rates and the upper limits of frame rates for Planetary, Lunar and Solar imaging, than the UBS3.0 version, the Altair GPCAM2 IMX290 Colour Camera is based around the same excellent low noise backside illuminated IMX290 Sony colour sensor and can be used for a variety of imaging purposes.

  4. ALTAIR GP224C 1.2MP, USB2.0, ST4 Cable, CS + UVIR-LENS

    ALTAIR GP224C 1.2MP, USB2.0, ST4 Cable, CS + UVIR-LENS

    This is the version of the ALTAIR GPCAM2 IMX224 GPCAM2 that comes with the following items: Camera body. 2m High-speed USB2.0 A male to B male cable. 1.5m ST4 guide cable. 1.25 inch x 20mm nosepiece with female 1.25" filter thread on the front. CS-Mount adapter with built-in UV-IR Blocking Filter, AR coatings. (Removable for sensor cleaning). Plastic dust cap 1.25". 2.1mm F1.6 150 degree FOV wide angle Meteor lens and dust caps. C-Mount 5mm extension adapter for C-Mount lenses requiring 17.5mm back-focus. Note: This camera does not come with software in the box. To operate the camera you will need to download the latest camera drivers at cameras.altairastro.com The Altair GPCAM2 IMX224 Colour camera has the sought after Sony Exmor IMX224 CMOS sensor, with high sensitivity, and extremely low read noise. It can be used for solar, planetary, lunar “lucky” imaging, deepsky imaging and of course video astronomy or EAA. Time-lapse all-sky imaging (with optional meteor lens) is fully supported. You would be hard-pressed to find a more versatile small-format colour astronomy imaging camera with this price and features. Free software: Free AltairCapture deepsky, planetary imaging and EAA software for Windows XP, 8, & 10 PC only. SPECIAL OFFER! FREE 1 YEAR SharpCap PRO License! Includes ultra-accurate polar alignment assist, deepsky CMOS exposure time optimisation assist, live stacking for EAA/Video astronomy, live darkframe and flat frame subtration. Click here for more SC PRO features. Just download the latest SharpCap, connect your camera, register when the screen pops up and sign up for your free license. Download SharpCap 3.0+ now to take advantage of this special offer. One license per user. For Windows PCs only. The Camera is compatible with PHD2.6 or above guiding software (native support), and with other applications through the ASCOM interface. Download ASCOM drivers here. NOTE: Software and drivers are not included in the box and must be downloaded from www.cameras.altairastro.com and installed before plugging in and operating the camera. Faster than the GPCAMv1. Onboard buffering gives USB data transfer speeds significantly higher than the GPCAM1 series, pushing the USB2.0 format to the limit, yet within a stable envelope. This almost completely eliminates dropped frames, corrupted video, and enables faster more consistent frame rates, even with less powerful notebook computers. AutoGuiding: The camera has an ST4 auto-guiding port, and can be used to auto-guide with mounts from all the major manufacturers supporting ST4 format, such as iOptron, Celestron and Skywatcher. And what's more, you get UK/EU based warranty support, plus the Altair Camera Google User Group for all your technical questions - a great place to share tips and techniques to get the best out of your camera. Cool casing design: The casing has an external heatsink surface, which dissipates heat generated by the electronics, reducing thermal noise. Reliable USB connector: The USB2.0 connector is the high strength type - the highest quality component of it's type on the market. This is much more reliable than the micro-USB connectors found on smartphones (we all know how those loosen up over a short time!). Multi-Format: The camera can be fully controlled in AltairCapture and SharpCap to output uncompressed .AVI and .SER video files for solar system imaging, as well as all common still image formats such as .JPEG .PNG .TIF .BMP, to mention just a few. The GPCAM supports 8bit or 12bit output. The 12 bit output mode can be used for deep sky imaging with less frames needing to be stacked and a wider pixel intensity range. The IMX224 sensor is extremely sensitive in the IR region (for all pixels not just red!) and can be used effectively with IR Pass filters for solar and lunar imaging in mono mode. What’s different about the GPCAM2 platform compared to the GPCAM1 platform? You’ll notice the GPCAM2 casing is larger than the GPCAM. This is to house larger electronics boards which support trigger mode and frame buffering as well as to increase the surface area for cooling. The GPCAM2 platform supports “Trigger Mode” to make long exposures of over 5 seconds easier to control. With most cameras, in normal video mode, you have to wait for an exposure to complete before the camera will accept, say a command to abort the frame, for say clouds, aircraft, or an alignment issue, like kicking the tripod and so-on, or for routine changes in gain, exposure time, , re-aligning or refocusing on the object. For long exposures, normal video mode is inconvenient, especially for video astronomy and deep-sky imaging, however in Trigger mode, you can stop the camera instantly (even if you are half way through a long 30 second exposure) change the settings, and re-start the camera looping again. The GPCAM2 also has an improved onboard frame buffer to improve data transfer stability at high frame rates (to reduce dropped frames) and to increase compatibility with a wider range of PCs. The improved buffers give a more consistent data transfer rate over USB2.0 and USB3.0 buses on laptops and desktop PCs. Learn More

  7. Meade LPI-G Colour Camera

    Meade LPI-G Colour Camera

    Telescope House welcomes the return of the Meade LPI. Meade's original LPI changed the face of amateur astrophotography, providing a reliable, compact camera capable of producing great images of the brighter members of the solar system. The Meade LPI-G Colour Camera is a completely new imager, whose form factor is small (eyepiece sized) and whose 1.2 Mega Pixels (1280x960) resolution way exceeds that of its old namesake. Bundled with new control software for capturing images (on both PCs and Macs) and sporting an ST-4 protocol port for Autoguiding (PC only), this imager is capable of delivering both performance and multi-functionality where it counts.
