Cameras

This is where you will find our range of cameras for astronomical imaging. It includes cameras for long exposure deep sky imaging, high frame rate solar system imaging, both colour and monochome. We have chosen this range of cameras based on value and performance.

Although we have divided this section up into Deep Sky, Solar System and Guide Cameras, this does not make the cameras mutually exclusive. Some cameras may belong to multiple groups. Many of the new generation of CMOS cameras are dual purpose and there is a growing trend of using high frame rate Solar System Cameras for deep sky imaging by combining thousands of very short exposures.

If you have any questions relating to any of the cameras listed, please contact us for more information.

Guide Cameras

Guide Cameras

These are smaller cameras that are suitable for use as guide cameras. Typically they feature either a 1.25" body or a 1.25" nose allowing them to be inserted into guide scopes and off axis guiders. All the cameras listed also feature legacy ST-4 guiding ports allowing the camera to relay guide commands to an 'autoguider' port on a mount. This is not a fundemental requirement as most mounts today will pulse guide using commands sent directly to the mount.
