Meade Deep Sky Imager II Color CCD Camera and Meade Deep Sky Imager PRO II Monochrome CCD - two imagenew CCD Cameras are being added to the Meade Deep Sky Imager DSI family of CCD imagers. Meade Deep Sky Imager II 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.

Deep Sky Imager Pro II CCD Astro Imager Kit 04527 comes with Meade CCD Color Filters. Bring vibrant color to images taken with your B&W Meade Deep Sky Imager PRO II by using Meade CCD Color Filter Set 04530 , included with Meade DSI II Pro Kit 04527. This high quality Dichroic CCD Meade Color Filter Set comes with Red, Green, and Blue interference filter's plus an IR blocking filter. Meade CCD Filters offer the ultimate in specific wavelength transmission for true color images with minimum exposure times.

Meade Deep Sky Imager Pro II DPI Pro 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 II Pro CCD Camera you can take exposures for hours at a time. Meade DSI-II Pro 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 Pro CCD Imager is the world's first un-cooled camera with low thermal noise.

Meade DSI-Pro II Deep Sky Imager Pro II CCD Camera offers:

High Sensitivity (1/2") CCD Sensor from Sony: Meade Deep Sky Imager II Pro 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 DSI II Pro 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 Pro 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:

  1. Increased resolution - increase resolution without interpolation
  2. Extended View - a final image that is nearly 4 times larger
  3. Field De-Rotation - eliminate field rotation with simple 2-star selection

No Batteries Required: Just plug Meade Deep Sky Imager II Pro '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 Pro 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 Pro II CCD Camera works on any telescope and can also be used as a sensitive and simple-to-use Autoguider.
