    Celestron Skyris 236M Monochrome CMOS Astronomy Camera

    Ultra-Sensitive Sony Exmor (TM) IMX236LQJ CMOS Sensor
    Celestron Partners with The Imaging Source The Imaging Source has been designing astronomical imaging cameras that are famous for their quality, performance, and value for many years, raising planetary imaging from the level of casual pastime into a sophisticated art form. Now, The Imaging Source designers have teamed up with Celestron's engineers to develop the Skyris camera line.


    Send More Data, Faster with USB 3.0: The USB 3.0 connections give Skyris incredibly fast image download capability. More notable is the Skyris' CMOS sensor, when sub-framed on planets, is capable of capturing up to 200 frames per second. Alternately, for lunar and solar imaging, you can capture data with the sensor at full format (2.3 megapixels) at 60 frames per second.

    The Celestron Skyris 236M is a monochrome camera, providing the highest degree of sensitivity for capturing the finest possible astroimages. To image in color, simply attach the specially designed Skyris 5 Position Filter Wheel for 1.25 Inch, (OPT #CE-95520.) 

    The Skyris 236M's body helps dissipate heat to decrease the effect of thermal noise. Skyris cameras do not contain an optical window, making cleaning your camera a much simpler task. This also guarantees maximum light transmission with no possibility of internal reflections.

    A Complete Imaging Solution All Skyris cameras come with Celestron iCap capture software as well as stacking software. This software package permits effortless camera control, image capture, and image or movie file exporting. Afterwards, you'll filter your images and stack the finest shots to build your masterpieces.

    The Skyris 236M also includes:

    A 10 foot USB 3.0 cable and a 1.25 Inch nosepiece. This package features everything necessary to start imaging the Sun, Moon, or planets.

    Using Skyris as an AutoGuider: The Skyris camera doubles as a fine autoguider. When used with a Celestron mount, Skyris connects as a DirectShow device or WDM-style webcam. Simply plug the hand control into the provided serial cable with an optional USB to RS-232 adapter. Skyris also supports popular software such as MaxIm DL or freeware such as the automatic calibration program PHD Guiding.
