The 1.25" barrel Skyris 132C Color CCD Eyepiece Camera from Celestron is a digital imaging system that allows you to capture 1280x960 resolution astronomical images in as fast as 0.0001 of a second. Using the Aptina AR0132AT Color CMOS sensor and connecting to a computer via USB 3.0, images download at up to 200 frames per second. The camera is also backward compatible with USB 2.0, but download speeds will be slower. The fast download speed of USB 3.0 allows you to gather more images in less time. This is ideal if the weather and atmospheric conditions are fluctuating and you have limited time for imaging. An 1.25" nosepiece screws onto the camera to easily mount into focusers. It can also be attached to a camera adapter with C-threads, usually requiring a T-to-C adapter. Whether you're looking at the Moon, Mars, or the rings of Saturn, the SKYRIS 132C takes your view of the sky and makes it available for everyone to see.

The included iCap software for Windows lets you control the camera, snap pictures or create a movie, and export your files. A stacking program called RegiStax lets you set parameters and automatically filter the best images and stack them to create the perfect composite celestial picture.

    Skyris 132C Color CCD Eyepiece Camera (1.25") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great planetary camera My wife and I purchased this camera to replace the lower end Celestron's own NexImage 5 (which we recommend to true beginners) and we are happy about it. There are other Skyris cameras available and the 132C is the cheapest in the lineup and the one we could afford. There is a monochrome version of it, which will yield better quality, but you will need to shoot videos using Red, Green and Blue filters to get a color image, and use de-rotation software to compensate for the planets rotation between the shoots. Beginners are encouraged to start using a color camera. There is no secret in using this camera, you just have to learn how to process it later (something we are still learning). You just plug it in the computer, adjust the exposure and record the video. It is that simple. The trick is in learning how to process the image. The package comes with the excellent and free program Registax that will help stack your video frames to get a high quality planetary photo. Planetary photography is best done shooting video and selecting the best frames of this video and stacking them together due to disturbance in Earth's atmosphere. The use of a motorized telescope is a must to engage in astrophotography. We post our first photos of Jupiter and the Moon using this camera. We know we can get better results, but as we said, we're still learning.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this Camera to anyone I use this camera with my Celestron 8se telescope, it works perfect! I would recommend it to anyone interested in astroimaging. A little expensive, but well worth it! I'm a novice at imaging and found it easy to set up and use. Hope this is helpful.
