Celestron Skyris 618 Color 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 ICX618AQ CCD Sensor

The Skyris 618C sensor is used in many of the most advanced planetary CCD cameras. Fast, with high sensitivity and optimum pixel size, it's perfect for planetary, lunar and solar imaging. Capture images at up to 120 frames per second to make amazing movies. With a fast sensor, you can take advantage of moments of stable air and get the sharpest planetary images possible. A smaller chip with large pixel size, it's best paired with long focal length telescopes like SCT's and Celestron's EdgeHD. A one shot color sensor allows you to capture full color images in a single exposure saving you on processing time.

  • Operates at temperatures between 40ºC and -40ºC (104ºF) for any conditions you might want to shoot in.
