Product Details

  • The Revolution Imager is a self-contained video astronomy camera, and in its R2 Version model, it is better than ever! A portable battery-powered 7-inch screen allows you to share your view and leave the laptop at home.

    With the Revolution Video Imager R2, you can now see more of the Universe than with a standard eyepiece! From valleys of the Moon to detailed views of deep-sky objects, the cosmos are now easily accessible from your backyard. Easily change the exposure of the video camera and seamlessly see the reds and greens of nebulae or even the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy. You will be blown away at what even the most modest tracking telescopes will show you in just a few seconds of exposure!

    Unleash your astro-imaging skills with the features of the Revolution Imager

    Based on the Sony ICX811 full-color sensor, the Revolution is a modified PAL video camera. By removing the typical IR blocking filter, the infrared wavelength is permitted to pass through to the sensor picking up on all the beautiful detail in night sky objects, especially nebulae. With a quick and easy change in exposure, you can go from Moon and planets to nebulosity making imaging and sharing a wonderfully liberating experience. Capable of capturing stills, the Revolution Imager is the perfect choice for outreach and educational situations.

    With an exceptionally sensitive sensor and the naturally larger pixel dimensions of a PAL camera, the Revolution Imager is the ultimate video eyepiece. Compact design and independent of computer power or screens, this amazing camera weighs just 6 ounces, so it won't weigh down even the lightest of setups.

    Prioritized Mechanics of the Revolution Imager

    With an included 7-inch LCD screen, and plug and play compatibility to the camera, you can leave your laptop safely at home. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers both the screen and the camera, and has an approximate life of 4 to 5 hours in a single charge. This means less drain on your auxiliary power supply or the ability to leave it at home all together depending on your mount. This video shows you how it all works together:



    Versatile Design

    What about capturing stills? While the Revolution R2 Imager's primary goal is to be an ultimate self-contained video camera it's perfectly capable of capturing stills. Pair it with the extremely affordable optional USB Video Capture Adapter and you'll be able to stack images to your heart's desire.

    And with the release of the R2 Version Model, not only have the base specifications been all-around upgraded, but several new ones have been added! For imaging purposes, it's now capable of boasting the capability for 5.12-second exposures, and the further ability to stack up to six images together.
