Celestron 236C overview

  • 1Description

The Skyris 236C Color CCD Eyepiece Camera from Celestron is a high resolution digital imaging system that allows you to capture full-color astronomical images in as fast as 0.0001 of a second. Images are captured using a color Sony Exmor IMX236 CMOS sensor and sent directly to your Windows or Mac computer running the included iCap imaging software via the fast USB 3.0 connection. It 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, which is critical if the weather and atmospheric conditions are fluctuating and you have limited time for imaging. Whether you're looking at the Moon, Mars, or the rings of Saturn, the Skyris 226C takes your view of the sky and makes it available for everyone to see.

Celestron recommends that you use a motorized mount for capturing clear and steady images. Out of the box, it is compatible with 1.25" focusers, and can be used in larger ones with an appropriate optional adapter. For use in Cassegrain-style scopes, a C-mount is included to attach it directly onto the visual back. The included iCap software for Windows and Mac lets you control the camera, snap pictures or create a movie file, and export them. An integrated stacking program in iCap lets you automatically filter the best images and stack them to create the perfect composite celestial picture.

    Celestron 236C reviews

    Skyris 236C Color CCD Eyepiece Camera (1.25") is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much whiz and not enough bang B&H Photo Video Pro Audio - Product Review Submission. The SKYRIS Sensor Technology hasn't been able to work very well or with the Vixen Flip Mirror. There must be another type as this doesn't work very well.
