Imaging Accessories

Astrophotography is an exciting and rewarding extension to the amateur astronomy hobby.
Modern digital imaging products allow the amateur astronomer to easily reach deeper into space, even from light polluted urban environments, and with much greater ease than in the past. The technology and cost of modern CCD cameras and autoguiders has reached a point where amateur astronomers with even modest budgets can achieve results that equal or exceed those of what professional astrophotgraphers were capable of only 25 years ago.

    11

    Video allows you to cut through light pollution and see faint deep space objects with telescopes of moderate size from urban and suburban environments.

  • Camera Adapters

    Camera Adapters

    15

    Camera adapters are used to attach a CCD or DSLR camera directly to a telescope without using an eyepiece.

  • Camera Mounts

    5

    Extension tubes and spacer rings are often required to reach focus or to achieve the proper spacing between a focal reducer and the image plane.

  • Filter Wheels

    Filter Wheels

    36

    Filter wheels are used in concert with monochromatic CCD cameras to achieve a composite color image.

  • Imaging Filters

    Imaging Filters

    38

    Imaging filters include both RGB filters for use with monchrome cameras and highly specialized narrowband filters for capturing detail in emission nebulae.

  • Focal Reducers
