August special for the ST-I Color imaging camera, just in time for the solar eclipse! Only $450 until the end of August.
The SBIG ST-I Color Planet Cam and Autoguider adds features unavailable anywhere else in a camera of this size and price. The ST-I Color is a low cost, high performance compact camera that is an excellent guider and very capable lunar/planetary imager. The body is lightweight, and no larger than many 1.25″ eyepieces. It is 1.25″ in diameter, 3.5″ long and weighs only 2.2 ounces.
Despite being so compact and lightweight, it includes a built-in mechanical shutter for automatic dark frames. This improves sensitivity by eliminating “hot pixels” and other image artifacts.
The camera receives both control signals and power from the USB 2.0 port of your computer, so only one thin USB cable is required.
