Celestron Skyris 445C

Whether you're an advanced user or a beginner, you'll love creating beautiful astroimages with the Skyris astronomical CCD camera. Capture the Sun, Moon, and planets like never before and create crisp, high-resolution images. Skyris cameras are the first to offer ultra-fast USB 3.0 connections combined with the most popular Sony CCD chips used for planetary imaging. Skyris also features a Celestron-designed camera body which helps dissipate heat to minimize the effect of thermal noise on the CCD.

Celestron Partners with The Imaging Source

For years, The Imaging Source has provided amateur astronomers with high-quality CCD cameras that elevate amateur planetary imaging from a casual hobby into an art form. The Imaging Source's astronomical cameras are known for high quality, value, and performance. Now, Celestron is proud to partner with The Imaging Source on the Skyris line.

Skyris 445C using the Sony ICX445AQA CCD Sensor

The Skyris 445C features a high-resolution CCD sensor with a larger detection area, small pixels, and a larger pixel array. This sensor is capable of all kinds of solar system imaging, from Jupiter to a close-up swatch of the Moon's craters. The small pixels provide more detail per pixel, even when used with smaller telescopes.

One-Shot Color

The Skyris 445C is a one-shot color camera. That means you can capture full-color images instantly. There's no need to spend time imaging the same target multiple times to capture different colors. You also won't need to invest in filters and a filter wheel, making the 445C an economical choice. Skyris cameras do not have an optical window. This makes cleaning your camera easier and ensures maximum light transmission with no risk of internal reflections.

Included Celestron iCap Software

All Skyris cameras include Celestron iCap capture software and stacking software, for Windows systems only. iCap software allows you to easily control the camera, snap your images or movie file, and export them. Next, you'll bring your images or movies into the stacking software, where you can automatically filter the best images and stack them to create your masterpiece.

Included accessories: 1.25" nosepiece, iCap software CD, 10' USB 3.0 cable, instruction manual.
