Celestron Skyris 445 Monochrome CCD Camera

Celestron joins forces with Imaging Source to bring you the Skyris series of CCD cameras. The Skyris CCD cameras offer the same exceptional quality that Imaging Source has been giving amateur astronomers for years, housed in a Celestron designed body that has remarkable heat dissipating abilities. They are the first camera series to offer a USB 3.0 interface for ultra fast download times.

Sony ICX445AL CCD Sensor

The Skyris 445M features the smallest pixels of the Skyris lineup. These tiny pixels give you a smoother image even when paired with a smaller aperture telescope. The 445 sensor also has the largest detection area to maximize the area of field that you'll be able to capture. A monochrome sensor gives you maximum detail and high resolution. Pair with an optional filter wheel and color filters to layer individual color shots.
