Celestron offers a wide array of high-quality, affordable, and user-friendly planetary imagers and the Skyris 236C is no exception. Designed and engineered in Germany by The Imaging Source, the leader in high-end planetary imaging, in collaboration with Celestron engineers in California, the Skyris 236 is known for quality, performance, and value, elevating planetary imaging from a casual hobby into an art form. Whether you're an advanced user or a beginner, you'll love creating beautiful astroimages with this easy-to-use cameras. Capture the Sun, Moon, and planets like never before and create crisp, high-resolution images.
CMOS technology is emerging as the hottest thing in imaging, and Sony's EXMOR IMX236 sensor leads the way. Twice as sensitive in the near-infrared as the IMX136, the IMX236 offers the perfect combination of speed, sensitivity, and value. You’ll get results that rival those of more expensive cameras, at a price that’s well suited to the budding astroimager. The IMX236’s small pixel size of just 2.8 microns delivers more resolution and requires less focal length than cameras with larger pixels – a big advantage for planetary imaging. Small to medium telescopes can achieve a bigger image scale without compromising sensitivity.
Skyris is capable of super-fast image download thanks to USB 3.0 connections. Even more impressive, Skyris’ CMOS sensor is capable of capturing up to 200 frames per second when subframed on planets. Or image the full 2.3 megapixel 1/3-inch sensor at 60 frames per second—great for lunar and solar imaging.
Skyris 236C is a one-shot color camera, allowing you to capture full-color images instantly. There's no need to image the same target multiple times to capture different colors. You also won't need to invest in filters and a filter wheel.
Skyris also features a Celestron-designed camera body, which helps dissipate heat to minimize the effect of thermal noise on the CCD. Skyris cameras do not have an optical window, which makes cleaning your camera easier and ensures maximum light transmission with no risk of internal reflections.
Complete Imaging Solution
All Skyris cameras include Celestron iCap capture software and stacking software (for Windows systems only). This software suite allows you to easily control the camera, capture, and export your images or movie files. Next, you’ll filter your images and stack the best shots to create your masterpiece.With a 1.25" nosepiece and 10' USB 3.0 cable included, Skyris has everything you need to get started with lunar, solar, or planetary imaging.
