Celestron 95518 overview

  • 1Description

The NexImage Burst Color CCD Eyepiece Camera from Celestron is a color astroimager designed to capture images of the Sun, Moon, and planets with our solar system. It's compatible with any computerized telescope or a non-computerized telescope with a tracking motor drive. Use the 1.25" nosepiece to quickly swap the NexImage with an eyepiece, or directly connect it to a C-mount back.

A Aptina AR0132AT color CMOS sensor captures 1280 x 960 resolution images with exposure speeds from 1 second to as fast as 0.0001 of second. Using a color imager lets you capture full-color images across the entire visual spectrum without having to attach or change filters. The included Registax software analyzes each frame of video, throws away the ones affected by atmospheric turbulence, and perfectly aligns the best frames. With the ability to tweak settings such as the gamma, sharpness, RGB balance, and color mixing, the resulting image is bright, clear, and focused.

    Celestron 95518 reviews

    NexImage Burst Color CCD Eyepiece Camera (1.25") is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth $200 I have a Celestron advanced VX8'' Newtonian reflector telescope. NexImage is my first CCD camera for planetary astrophotography. The way how it works is using software iCap to capture a video followed by a video processing software RegiStax to generate picture. RegiStax stacks thousands of video frames into a single picture. I have extensive microscopic photography experiences and find iCap quite intuitive and easy to use. The most amazing function is that the software and camera can help doing some extra micro-focusing to make video sharper. I haven't fully explored the customizing function of RegiStax yet, but the planet pictures generated by default process generally beats the picture taken by DSLR camera (I have Nikon D3100) in terms of the resolution. However, the color of NextImage picture is not as natural as DSLR picture; maybe I haven't figure out how to correct the color in RegiStax. Another con is that due to the stacking algorithm, some Nextimage pictures looked deformed a little bit. For example, Jupiter looks more oval than spherical.
