Celestron Launches Skyris™ USB 3.0 Planetary Imaging Cameras

For years, The Imaging Source has provided amateur astronomers with high-quality CCD cameras that elevate planetary imaging from a casual hobby into an art form. Celestron is thrilled to announce not only a landmark partnership with The Imaging Source, but the game-changing result of that collaboration: Skyris, a revolutionary new line of astronomical CCD cameras. Designed for beginning and advanced imagers alike, each of the six color and monochromatic Skyris models reveals the solar system from a completely new perspective, allowing to create stunning planetary images in crisp, high resolution. Superior internal components—including Sony® EXview HAD™ imaging sensors and high-speed USB 3.0 connections—result in great camera sensitivity with ultra-fast image capture. Capture more exposures in less time to record moments of the most stable air, resulting in the best image quality. Finally, the dynamic 12-bit image output dramatically outranges the 8-bit output of standard planetary CCDs.
