Astronomy Cameras Let You Share Your Observations

The only thing that could be better than spending hours searching the night sky, studying your favorite planets and constellations, would be the ability to share what you are seeing with others who have the same interests. For many years the only astronomy cameras available were film type and generally this was no more than a 35mm camera mounted on an adaptor plate that let you take single pictures.

Modern astronomy cameras are CCD video cameras that have been designed specifically for use with telescopes and are capable of taking both single pictures and video recordings that can show a meteor shower in all of its glory with such clarity that you can stream the images online to anyone who shares your interest. You can even take these amazingly crisp images, load them onto a USB flash drive and have your local print shop turn them into stunning posters for your wall or to give away as gifts.
