About the NexImage Burst Cameras
The Celestron NexImage Burst Solar System Imagers are an innovative camera created for the beginner astro imager but utilizing one of the best CMOS imaging sensors available! Compatible with computerized and non-computerized telescopes (equipped with a motor drive for tracking) and packaged with a 1.25" adapter, this little imaging dynamo is compatible with hundreds of telescopes and easily adapts.
Utilizing the included software package, the NexImage Burst is capable of capturing incredible detail and producing images that rival those taken with much more expensive cameras. The perfect choice for hobbyist new to imaging - it's almost as easy as point and shoot. Capable of recording more than 120 frames per second, the included software will analyze each frame and eliminate any affected by atmospheric turbulence which is the number one culprit of sub-par images. This means only the best, sharpest frames are aligned to create bright, clear images with awesome detail. This is an especially great feature for those imaging in light polluted areas making this a great pick for the backyard astronomer.
About the Aptina AR0132 CMOS Monochrome SensorCMOS technology is emerging as the hottest trend in imaging, and Aptina’s AR0132 sensor leads the way. This updated version of the popular MT9M034 sensor offers the perfect combination of speed, sensitivity, and value. You won’t find the Aptina AR0132 sensor for a better price anywhere than NexImage Burst. By capturing images in black and white (monochrome) the highest possible resolution is maintained. By adding an optional filter wheel and filter sets you can add color or more detail to your images.

- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsI am looking for a good quality monochrome CCD for imaging the sun through a Coronado PST double stacked solar scope. Would this combination allow enough focal travel to reach prime focus? Which seems to be a flaw with any camera and the PST line.Question by: Duane H. on Mar 5, 2017 9:41:00 PMUnfortunately, no, the back-focus of this camera is too much to reach focus in the PST. You would need to look at a camera with a 1.25" diameter tube profile (various models from QHY and Starlight-Xpress) or a camera with a very short back focus (Atik GP). The Meade LPI-G would also work, as the sensor is mounted far enough down the barrel to allow infinity focus with the PST. Generally, you need a camera with less than 12.5mm effective back focus (from the mounting shoulder on the nosepiece to the sensor) in order to focus.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Mar 16, 2017 8:40:00 AM
