Orion StarShoot Deep Space Monochrome Imager III
A "low-cost" camera for achieving "high-end" results!
Monochrome imaging chip and deluxe features add to your imaging potential
The perfect camera for deep-sky "tri-color" imaging through LRGB filters
You can even image in light-polluted skies with Extra Narrowband H-alpha, S-II and O-III filters!
Thermoelectric cooling (TEC) and on-board cooling fan reduce the CCD temperature to 30 degrees C below ambient for smooth, low-noise images
Compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 Operating Systems.
While digital photography has revolutionized the way we capture images these days, some photographic concepts have never changed. When it comes to producing the very best astro-images, most astrophotographers will readily acknowledge that you must compose shots taken with a monochrome camera, through separate LRGB filters. This yields greater flexibility in the digital darkroom. The new StarShoot Deep Space Monochrome Imager III will put you on the cutting edge of imaging technology, using the same "tri-color" photo processing technique employed by professional astronomers the world over. The composites you take will combine to reveal previously unnoticed details in deep-sky objects and other celestial phenomena!
What's more, the new Deep Space Monochrome Imager III, designed for intermediate and avid astronomers, utilizes the highly acclaimed 2/3" format Sony ICX285AL CCD with an impressive 1360x1024 pixel array. This impressive imaging chip provides high sensitivity and resolution, and yields superior color rendition when used with LRGB filters. The monochrome camera also excels for narrowband tri-color imaging with specialized filters such as Hydrogen-alpha, Sulfur-II, and Oxygen-III.
