Description

Celestron offers a wide array of high-quality, affordable, and user-friendly planetary imagers! 

Capture high-resolution planetary, lunar and solar images with almost any telescope with the NexImage 5 Solar System Imager. Combined with the included software package, NexImage 5 brings out tremendous detail and produces images rivaling those taken with astronomical cameras costing hundreds more.

Simply point your telescope at the Moon or a planet and record a quick video. The included software analyzes each frame of video, throws away the fuzzy ones, and perfectly aligns the remaining images. The result is a bright, clear image with the maximum amount of color and detail. NexImage 5 is a great way to get started with astroimaging, especially if you live in a light-polluted area. If you can see the planet the sky, you can image it with NexImage 5!

  • 5 Mega pixel color sensor with ON Semiconductor’s breakthrough low-noise CMOS imaging technology to dramatically reduce image noise levels
  • Small pixel sizes provide sub arc-second planetary detail with most telescopes
  • View and capture live video on your computer
  • Software automatically filters out video frames most affected by poor atmospheric conditions, leaving only the sharpest, clearest frames to be stacked and aligned into one high-quality image
  • Camera control software allows you to manually change the gain, contrast, exposure time, frame rate and color saturation using your PC
  • Selectable “region of interest” sub-framing
  • Machined aluminum 1.25" adapter barrel with C-threads for direct threaded connection to almost any telescope
  • Can be used with standard 1.25” eyepiece filters
  • Integrated IR-cut optical window
  • 2x2 and 4x4 binning capability in color
  • Progressive scan
  • Includes USB 2.0 cable
