The iE3000 Electronic Eyepiece CCTV Imager from iOptron is a 3 megapixel camera that attaches to the focusing tube of a telescope. This astrophotography device enables stargazers to view or capture the transmitted image from their telescope on a computer. The iE3000 can be used with any telescope that accepts a 1.25" eyepiece, or 1" eyepiece using the included adapter. After installing the driver to your PC, simply insert the camera into the telescope focusing tube, connect the camera to your PC using the included USB cable, open the image/video capture program of your choice, focus the image using the dial on the camera, then you are ready to view the terrestrial/celestial sights with your computer screen and save photos and videos to your hard drive.
