Celestron NexImage 5 Solar System Imager (5MP)
Key Features
  • 5 Mega Pixel Color Sensor
  • Live Video; View & Capture
  • Imaging Software
  • Aluminum 1.25" Adapter Barrel
The NexImage 5 Solar System Imager (5MP) from Celestron is a 5 megapixel color sensor that not only allows you to capture still images of your celestial subjects on a computer but also boasts the ability to view and capture live video as well. A small pixel size provides sub arc-second planetary detail with most telescopes and the Micron DigitalClarity technology reduces image noise levels. The included software automatically filters out video frames that have been the most affected by poor atmospheric seeing and leaves only the sharpest, clearest frames to be stacked and aligned into one high quality image. The software also delivers the ability to manually change the gain, contrast, exposure time, frame rate and color saturation of the camera through the computer. It has a machined aluminum 1.25" adapter barrel that accepts standard 1.25" eyepiece filters. The camera body has integrated C-threads affording direct threaded connection to the telescope. The optical window has been IR-cut for greater precision and there is a selectable "region of interest" for sub-framing. The NexImage 5 has 2x2 and 4x4 binning capability, progressive scanning and includes a high speed USB 2.0 cable.

question

Ive had trouble keeping a good track on Jupiter and Saturn with my Celestron 6se and my Neximage 5. Both planets drift out of the Icap window even after I have a good alignment. Any suggestions?
Asked by: Jory O.
Make sure your tripod is level, and confirm the telescope is tracking a celestial object after a successful alignment. If you are using a Barlow Lens, consider using a 1.5x Barlow Lens or not one at all. Sincerely, Garret at Celestron

Pardon me for not being so advanced. can this be used in a 10" Dob no tracking? Once attached to a laptop, I'm assuming you can focus while watching real time on your laptop screen? How quick is the exposure time given the object will be moving in a Dob with no tracking. Thanks!
