Celestron Neximage 5 is a high resolution 5 megapixel planetary camera with a very small pixel size of 2.2x2.2 & microm. Thanks to such properties, the camera allows to obtain a large scale of the image useful in planetary observations, guaranteeing at the same time a correspondingly high resolution of the image. Thanks to the Micron Digital Clarity technology, it was possible to significantly reduce the amount of noise. As befits a camera, the NexImage 5 transmits a video stream to the computer, the number of frames per second ranges from 52 fps to 0.7 fps (it is possible to read only from the transmitter part, from the so-called ROI - Region Of Interest ). The camera is accompanied by software allowing for the automatic elimination of blurred frames, with an image disturbed by seeing. The software also allows you to adjust basic camera parameters such as exposure time, gain or color balance. The NexImage 5 camera has a built-in IR Cut filter. USB cable and 1.25 "toe cap included.
Included is a CD containing software: iCap (software for camera operation), Registax (photo processing), camera drivers.
