Enter the world of astrophotography now - with the new EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC 4K planetary & deep sky astro camera plus ST-4 autoguider function!
This is really new: Equipped with the new, highly sensitive SONY IMX485 Exmor CMOS color sensor, this astronomy camera delivers amazing image results with extremely short exposure times, even with simple telescope equipment. This ultra-modern camera can also be used as an autoguider. An all-round camera that not only delivers super-sharp, high-resolution planetary images, but can also be used particularly well for capturing faint deep-sky celestial objects such as galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. The high 4K resolution of 3840x2160 pixels guarantees the best possible image result.
Sensor: The secret of the high light sensitivity lies in SONY's new back-illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor. This increases the quantum efficiency to up to 77% at 533 nm, which means an extremely high light output and thus delivers particularly bright and high-contrast photos. In addition, the particularly low noise level of this new chip generation from SONY ensures exceptionally high brilliance and no active cooling is required. Nevertheless, this astro camera has a complex inner structure made of aluminum for heat dissipation and a fan that can be switched on via software. Due to the high native pixel resolution of 3840x2160, very nice overview shots of the moon, but also detailed planetary shots are possible in combination with suitable telescopes.
Software: The Explore Capture software included in the scope of delivery not only offers the necessary basic functions for image and video recording, but also many helpful special functions for image post-processing and for setting up the guider.
