    Used Celestron NexImage Burst Camera - Color-SOLD

    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 Color Sensor: CMOS 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. The ultimate in point and shoot astroimaging, you'll be capturing images in beautiful full color eliminating the need for color filters and shortening overall exposure times. This camera can still be paired with an optional filter wheel and narrowband filters to bring out even more detail in the objects you're capturing.

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • Is the software for the camera compatible with MacIntosh computers?  OS Lion or Mountain Lion?

      Unfortunately, at this time the NexImage Burst cameras are only Windows compatible. Celestron is looking into having Mac software written for this camera, but there is no timeline at the moment.

    • What does this camera offer that the Neximage 5 doesn't, to warrant a price 29% higher?

      The Aptina AR0132 CMOS sensor on the Neximage Burst has a peak Quantum Efficiency of 75%, very low noise, high dynamic range, and a frame rate of up to 35 FPS at full res and well over 100 FPS at 640 x 480 crop mode on a fast USB 2.0 connection. This is d

    • I BELIEVE THE LUX RATING FOR THE NEXIMAGE 5 IS 0.9. WHAT IS THE LUX RATING FOR THE NEXIMAGE BURST?

      Hello Jim65, The Neximage Burst contains an ARO132 CMOS Sensor which has a sensitivity rating of 5.48 V/lux-sec

    • I am interested in this camera but cant find a image taken from one? do they exist.

      Because this is such a new product, Celestron has still not received images back from their initial test imagers as of July 15, though they expect to have some images to show soon.

    • This camera and the monochrome variant are listed at the same price. Pixel size is the same. Is there some reason to use one over the other? For example, greater dynamic range in the mono?

      The mono has no Bayer matrix separating to color detail onto different pixels, so the mono is ~4x as sensitive and has ~1/2 the noise of the color version, but it requires a filter wheel and filters (at additional expense) to get a color image. The color

    • Can it be used for autoguiding also?

      While the Nexstar Burst cannot itself guide a telescope, using software like Metaguide and a USB to guide relay box (products not sold by us) would allow this to be used as a guide camera. Without these items, you would only be able to use this as a plan

    • Can the camera be used for double star imaging?

      Like all high resolution webcams, this can be used to image bright double stars, though they need to be far enough apart to be split given the local seeing conditions. Generally, a monochrome camera will give you higher resolution potential, but when obs

    • Has anyone tried the software on windows run on bootcamp? I have a mac with bootcamp installed so that I can run Rspec. I would really like to add my voice to requests to get some imaging software written for mac.

      According to Celestron, the camera will work just fine in Bootcamp. Celestron is in the process of writing OS-X compatible software for many of their cameras, but they have not stated when they will roll this software out.

    • What is the pixel format of the raw output using DirectShow if available? For example RGB8, Y800, YUV420, etc.

      The manufacturer doesn't specify what codecs are available, but the similar Skyris 132 with the same iCap software has options for Y800 and RGB32 listed in the manual. For other formats, alternative free software like FireCapture is available.

    • Is the software for the NexImage Burst compatible with Wiondows 7?

      Yes, Celestron notes that this camera is compatible with Windows 7.

    • With a 150/750 Newtonian, can the Neximage pick up stars? Worry is the stars maybe to faint?

      Unfortunately, with a maximum exposure time of 1 second, this camera will not be able to pick up any except the absolute brightest stars. You would need to use a camera designed more for deep space imaging with a longer maximum exposure time. Please con

    • Does this come with a warranty

      Yes, all of the used equipment we resell comes with a 90-day warranty, starting at the date-of-purchase.

    • Does this camera works on windows 10 and HD screen

      Yes, this camera will work fine on a Windows 10 computer with an HD screen. The camera resolution is 1280x960, so it will not quite fill the whole screen, but it will cover most of it at full resolution.
