One of the most challenging aspects of planetary imaging is getting enough stable atmospheric seeing in order to capture crisp images of Mars, Jupiter, Saturn or other Solar System object. Orion is proud to furnish a solution that not only meets this challenge, but also provides a versatile "two-in-one" imaging solution. Introducing the StarShoot Planetary Imager & AutoGuider, the first dual-purpose camera of its kind from Orion!

Powered by a 1/3" format Aptina MT9V032 Color CMOS chip, with a 752x480 pixel layout, the "SSPIAG" boasts an incredibly fast frame rate (up to 50 frames per second), allowing you to catch those split-second windows of atmospheric clarity during your planetary imaging sessions. Due to its amazing speed, the SSPIAG is ideal for imaging time-sensitive celestial events such as Moon occultations, solar and lunar eclipses, Space Station flybys and more.

The SSPIAG comes with intuitive PHD Planetary software, to give you full control over image capture, stacking, basic processing, and file export. In addition, the camera's internal processing features allow you to boost dynamic range and gain, apply noise reduction and more.

That's only half the story! As the name implies, the StarShoot Planetary Imager & Autoguider is also a fully functioning autoguider. It features an ST-4 compatible autoguide output jack right on the camera itself, eliminating the need for extra adapters and cables. The camera also comes with award-winning PHD Guiding software for optimum autoguiding control.

So, whether you're a "newbie" to astrophotography, and advanced planetary imager who requires a high-performance camera, or an astro-imager who needs a reliable autoguider, the StarShoot Planetary Imager & Autoguider is the right solution for you!

Includes software CD, 6' USB cable, and 7' autoguiding cable.
