As the name implies, theLunar, Planetary Imager & Guider(LPI-G) is an ideal camera for photographing theMoon, planetsand - with suitable filters - theSun. The camera can also be used as anauto-guider- it works via an ST-4 connector and the required ASCOM interface.
Speed is important in a planetary camera - the LPI-G Advanced delivers59fpsat full resolution(3072 x 2048)- allowing you to record a video in which the air turbulence in the individual images is effectively \'frozen\'. This video can then be used to superimpose the best images to give a summed exposure (known as \'stacking\').
The included software has the image acquisition and editing software required:Meade SkyCapture.
In addition to the software, the camera also comes with a USB cable, an ST-4 cable and a1.25\" nosepieceto allow you to connect the camera to the telescope via the C-thread or into the focuser like a 1.25\" eyepiece
