Astro-imaging is an immensely rewarding hobby, but the challenges involved can seem difficult if you are a beginner. Some of the best objects to start on are the planets of our own solar system and the Moon. Big, bright targets like Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and the Moon make wonderful models as they strut their way around the Sun on their celestial catwalk. The Moon and planets are relatively easy to locate and identify in the night sky, so such objects are great imaging targets for beginners.

The Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imager IV is equipped with features that make it easy to take your own images of objects in our solar system. Its 1/3-inch format CMOS imaging sensor with a 1280 x 1024 pixel layout can take sharply detailed planetary and lunar images. Each pixel is a mere 3.6µm x 3.6µm in size for exceptional image resolution in 24-bit RGB color. Since the 8-bit output StarShoot Solar System Color Imager IV is progressive scan, all pixels will be used for each and every exposure. At full 1280 x 1024 resolution, you can capture up to 15 frames per second. By stacking multiple exposures to create a single picture, you can increase image detail significantly.

A capable and affordable tool for anyone wishing to take some interesting pictures of the night sky at a low cost. Suitable for beginners to hardcore observers. The easy setup will make it a fast and fun learning experience for first-timers!

Compatible with BOTH Mac and Windows operating systems!

  • Features a 1/3" format color CMOS imaging chip with a very small 3.6microns x 3.6microns pixel size for exceptional resolution.
