Product QuestionsIs it possible to remove IR CUT filter and install custom one/narrowband filter or get full spectrum ability?Question by: Karol Masztalerz on Mar 23, 2016 2:32:00 AMThe IR filter can be removed by removing the optical window. The manufacturer sells an AR coated clear window that lets through much more UV and lots of NIR, but this is a custom order and can take time to get in to stock. It might be easier to remove the UV/IR blocked window and just use a 1.25" filter on the end of the nosepiece to get the spectrum bandpass that you want.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Mar 25, 2016 5:20:00 PMCan this camera be used as an autoguider?
If yes what would be the max magnitude for a star to be detected with a 8" telescope and off-axis guider?
I binning supported?
MichelQuestion by: guaveia on Feb 7, 2016 1:23:00 PMMichel,
The ZWO can not be used as an autoguider you would have to go to a camera like the ZWO ASI120S to have one with the ST4 autoguider port. If you're using it mostly as an autoguider, get
the monochrome because it's more sensitive than the color version. We also do have them in stock. Thanks. SteveAnswer by: Steve Thornton (Admin) on Feb 7, 2016 4:18:00 PMHi I am thinking of this for my brother who is an avid astronomer - what else is required to use this item.Question by: Sandra Choy on May 8, 2015 3:02:00 PMSandra,
I have the same camera and if you're brother is going to do planetary imaging with his telescope,
depending on what telescope he might have, a 2x or 3x Barlow might be helpful to get the
right image scale. Other than that, he would need a laptop to run the camera. We do have
camera in stock.
SteveAnswer by: Steve Thornton (Admin) on May 12, 2015 2:33:00 PMWhat software works with this imager, is it included? Also what is needed extra to control from PC?Question by: jpreid on Jul 29, 2014 4:02:29 AMI have a PST myself and it is difficult to reach focus with it with most cameras. My PST has an available back focus of around 13mm, and most cameras are closer to 15mm with the nosepiece attached. Other people have not had an issue, so there is some variability with the design. You can try it and see, but unless you add a barlow to move the focus point outward, it is difficult to predict whether this camera will reach focus or not.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Jul 30, 2014 7:03:39 AM
