Orion StarShoot Solar System Colour Imaging Camera IV
New from Orion is their latest generation of planetary camera. Utilising a high-resolution 1.3MP 1/3" colour CMOS sensor, the Orion StarShoot Solar System Colour Imaging Camera IV yields fabulous results on the Moon and brighter planets. Included software is now Mac OS X compatible (up to OS X 10.10), as well as Windows 10, 8 & 7, Vista (32 bit & 64 bit), and XP operating systems.
The system is protected by an IR filter for screening of thermal noise and the 3.6 micron pixel size of the chip means higher resolution images. The 8-bit progressive scan of the Orion StarShoot Solar System Colour Imaging Camera IV means that every one of those pixels is used for each and every exposure. At full resolution (1280 x 1024), the system is capable of capturing up to 15 frames a second via high speed USB connection. The Camera is supplied with the excellent Orion AmCap software, which saves movie files as .avi files and progressive stacking via programs such as Registax can significantly increase image detail.
