Solar System Cameras

Solar System Cameras

Cameras to capture images of Solar System targets include our Sun the Moon and Planets. Imaging of these targets is considered high resolution imaging and requires different techniques to deep sky imaging. Principally the main difference is that this type of imaging makes use of high numbers of images captured quickly. This allows the capturing of images during moments of the best seeing, with images captured during poor seeing discarded. The resulting stack is then of very low noise and can be aggressively processed to extract fine detail.

The cameras needed for this type of imaging are required to offer high frame rates combined with low noise. Our range of cameras includes entry level cameras and sophisticated models that offer extreme speed even with large sensors.
