The user-friendly astrophotography revolution continues with Meade Deep Sky Imager II Color CCD Astro-Imager 04526.
Meade Deep Sky Imager II Color CCD Camera 04526 and Meade Deep Sky Imager PRO II Monochrome CCD Camera 04524 - two new CCD Cameras are being added to the Meade Deep Sky Imager family of CCD imaging equipment. Meade Deep Sky Imager II 04526 boasts a 1/2" Color Sony CCD sensor. Meade Deep Sky Imager PRO II has a 1/2" Monochrome Sony CCD sensor. Achieve fast one-shot color images with Meade Deep Sky Imager 2 Color CCD Camera. With the greater sensitivity of the monochrome chip, go deeper with the Meade Deep Sky Imager PRO 2 Monochrome CCD Camera, and achieve greater detail with Meade CCD Color Filter Set.
Meade Deep Sky Imager II DSI II combines ease-of-use with a larger chip, greater sensitivity, higher resolution, and dramatically lower thermal noise. Meade engineers have invented a remarkable new way to reduce noise without a cooler. This means that with Meade Deep Sky Imager II CCD Camera you can take exposures for hours at a time. Meade DSI-II CCD Astro Imager also features the new thermal monitoring sensors, that automatically match your dark frames to ambient temperature so it's nearly impossible to take an uncalibrated picture. The software includes a new zoom feature for easier focusing and the squared pixels of the new larger chip make processing simpler and images more beautiful than ever. Meade DSI II CCD Astro Imager is the world's first un-cooled camera with low thermal noise.
Meade DSI-2 Deep Sky Imager II Color CCD Camera offers:
High Sensitivity (1/2") CCD Sensor from Sony: Meade Deep Sky Imager II utilizes Sony's large 1/2" ExView HAD CCD Image Sensor. This sensor provides dramatically lower noise and higher dynamic range featuring a 16-Bit A/D converter.
USB 2.0 High Speed: Download images with fast USB connection.
Multiple Imager Operation: AutoStar Envisage will support any number of Meade Deep Sky Imager Cameras and one Meade LPI Lunar Planetary Imager.
Temperature Sensor: Meade Color Deep Sky Imager II DSI-II CCD Astroimager has a built in temperature sensor for fast and accurate auto-dark frame subtraction. The temperature sensor matches the current temperature of the CCD chip to each dark frame so it's nearly impossible to take an uncalibrated picture.
Less Noise Means More Data: You get all the data from your Meade Deep Sky Imager II without compression, and that means no loss of information in your raw images.
Drizzle Technology: Drizzle was developed by NASA for processing images from Hubble Space Telescope. It will work on any Meade AutoStar Controlled Telescope. There are 3 enhancements that Drizzle adds:
- Increased resolution - increase resolution without interpolation
- Extended View - a final image that is nearly 4 times larger
- Field De-Rotation - eliminate field rotation with simple 2-star selection
No Batteries Required: Just plug Meade Deep Sky Imager II 's USB 2.0 High Speed cable into your laptop and you are ready to image or autoguide. No other power supplies are needed.
Meade AutoStar Suite Software is included: Meade Auto Star Suite includes Sky Software, Image Capture Software, and Image processing Software.
Lightweight and Portable: Meade DSI II CCD Imager weighs only 10 ounces and is very compact, measuring only 3.25" x 3.25" x 1.25" with no need for additional balance weights.
Versatile: Meade Deep Sky Imager II CCD Camera works on any telescope and can also be used as a sensitive and simple-to-use Autoguider.
