Discover the joy of taking gorgeous 16-bit pictures of deep space phenomena without breaking the bank with the value-packed Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Monochrome Imaging Camera! Our affordable third generation entry-level monochrome Orion StarShoot Deep Space Imaging Camera lets you take beautiful astrophotos without emptying your wallet.

The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Monochrome 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 Monochrome 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 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.

Featuring a monochrome imaging CCD chip, the StarShoot G3 Monochrome Imaging Camera is capable of performing advanced tri-color imaging techniques when used with proper LRGB or narrowband astrophotography filters. Using a monochrome astrophotography camera gives you complete control over which light wavelengths to accentuate to achieve vibrantly colored astrophotos of deep space phenonema.

The StarShoot G3 Deep Space Monochrome Imaging Camera is the only monochrome 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 a truly amazing value. The on-board TEC can cool the StarShoot G3 Mono to a brisk 10°C below ambient temperature so that noise is minimized in dark frames and exposures. The monochrome StarShoot G3 even features a small, vibration-free fan which assists the TEC to remove warm air 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!
