Product Description

Celestron - NexImage Burst Monochrome Imager - CMOS Sensor
Capture high-resolution planetary, lunar and solar images with the NexImage Burst Solar System Imager. This innovative camera is easy enough for a beginner to use, but features one of the best CMOS sensors available for astroimaging. It’s compatible with any computerized telescope or a non-computerized telescope with a motor drive for tracking celestial objects.  
Combined with the included software package, NexImage Burst brings out tremendous detail and produces images rivaling those taken with astronomical cameras costing much, much more.

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.

NexImage Burst Color is a one-shot color camera, allowing you to capture full-color images instantly. There's no need to image the same target multiple times to capture different colors. You also won't need to invest in filters and a filter wheel. 

Getting started with NexImage Burst is as easy as pointing the telescope at the Moon, Sun, or a planet and recording a video. For the sharpest possible images, NexImage Burst can record more than 120 frames per second when sub-framed rather than full-frame.  The included software analyzes each frame of video, throws away the ones affected by atmospheric turbulence, and perfectly aligns the best frames. The result is a bright, clear astro-image with impressive detail.

Solar system imaging with NexImage Burst is a great way to enjoy the hobby of astro-imaging even if you live in a light-polluted area.
