Now you can discover the joy of taking gorgeous 16-bit pictures through your telescope of deep space phenomena without spending an arm and a leg! Discover the value-packed Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera - our third generation affordable entry-level Orion StarShoot Deep Space Imaging Camera lets you take beautiful astrophotos without emptying your wallet, providing an ideal entry into astrophotography for any amateur astronomer.

The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera has been designed with performance enhancing features and software that until now have been reserved for much more expensive CCD imagers. Built around the popular Sony interline ICX419AKL color CCD chip, which boasts a 752 x 582 pixel array with sensitive, 8.6 micron by 8.3 micron pixels, the StarShoot G3 is capable of detecting fine details in celestial objects. This bigger, 1/2" format CCD sensor usually isn't available in cameras priced as low as the Orion StarShoot G3, and it provides a much larger imaging field of view than cameras equipped with 1/3" format chips so you can shoot more sky in far less time.

The StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera is the only camera in its price range to feature regulated thermoelectric cooling (TEC). Regulated thermoelectric cooling significantly improves astrophoto quality and reduces noise by enabling accurate dark frame acquisition. This regulated "cooling" feature is usually only found in much pricier cameras, and makes the StarShoot G3 Camera a truly amazing value. The efficient on-board TEC can cool the StarShoot G3 to a brisk 10°C below ambient temperature so that noise is minimized in dark frames and exposures. The StarShoot G3 even features a small, vibration-free fan which assists the TEC to remove warm air swiftly and further optimize imaging results. These cooling features are usually only found on imaging cameras priced up to four times more expensive than the Orion StarShoot G3!
