StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera #53082 $499.99
StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera #53082

An affordable and capable astrophotography camera for anyone interested in taking amazing images of starry skies with a telescope The StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera features a 1/2" format CCD sensor and an on-board thermoelectric cooler (TEC) which are normally only available on much more costly cameras With high-tech features such as 16-bit A/D conversion, regulated thermoelectric cooling, on-board fan and more, you'll find yourself taking wall-worthy astrophotos with this affordable camera The Orion StarShoot G3 can also be used as a dedicated, high-performance, low-noise autoguider with ST-4 output built right in Complete Orion Camera Studio software is included for easy image capture, processing, and sharing of your astro-images. ASCOM drivers are also included for use of the StarShoot G3 with other imaging software programs, or for autoguiding use

Now you can discover the joy of taking gorgeous 16-bit pictures of deep space phenomena without spending an arm and a leg with the value-packed Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera! Our third generation affordable entry-level Orion StarShoot Deep Space Imaging Camera lets you take beautiful astrophotos without emptying your wallet, providing an ideal entry into astrophotography for any amateur astronomer.

The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera has been totally redesigned with performance enhancing features and software that until now have been reserved for much more expensive CCD imagers. Built around the popular Sony interline ICX419AKL color CCD chip, which boasts a 752 x 582 pixel array with sensitive, 8.6 micron by 8.3 micron pixels, the StarShoot G3 is capable of detecting fine details in celestial objects. This bigger, 1/2" format CCD sensor usually isn’t available in cameras priced as low as the StarShoot G3, and it provides a much larger imaging field of view than cameras equipped with 1/3” format chips so you can shoot more sky in far less time.

The StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera is the only camera in its price range to feature regulated thermoelectric cooling (TEC). Regulated thermoelectric cooling significantly improves astrophoto quality and reduces noise by enabling accurate dark frame acquisition. This regulated “cooling” feature is usually only found in much pricier cameras, and makes the StarShoot G3 a truly amazing value. The on-board TEC can cool the StarShoot G3 to a brisk 10°C below ambient temperature so that noise is minimized in dark frames and exposures. The StarShoot G3 even features a small, vibration-free fan which assists the TEC to remove warm air and further optimize imaging results. These cooling features are usually only found on imaging cameras priced up to four times more expensive than the Orion StarShoot G3!

The versatile Orion StarShoot G3 can also be used as a dedicated autoguider, with a direct ST-4 output conveniently built right into the camera body. Use the StarShoot G3 as a high-performance, low-noise 16-bit CCD autoguider with a high-end CCD imaging camera or DSLR attached to your imaging telescope for especially accurate tracking and precise results. Included ASCOM drivers allow you to use your choice of autoguiding software with the StarShoot G3, such as PHD Guiding, when using the camera as an autoguider. Autoguiding software is not included with the Orion StarShoot G3 Color Deep Space Imaging Camera.

The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera comes with a removable 1.25” nosepiece for easy attachment to virtually any telescope focuser. The nosepiece is threaded for use with 1.25” Orion imaging filters so you can easily enhance your images. Removing the 1.25” nosepiece reveals a built-in 2” nosepiece with standard T-threads for secure coupling of the camera to your imaging telescope and/or astrophotography accessories.

Measuring just 3.4” in diameter with a depth of 1.85”, the compact Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera won’t take up much space in your accessory case, and its small size makes it a great candidate for use with Fastar and Hyperstar imaging systems. The camera weighs just 12 oz. so whether it’s used as an imaging camera or autoguider, it will keep your astrophotography setup lean and mean.

The StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera connects to your computer via its USB 2.0 connection, and a 10’ USB cable is included. A 10’ auto-lighter power cable is also included to provide 12V DC power to the on-board cooling TEC when needed. The USB 2.0 connection provides enough power to the camera for non-cooled operation or for use as an autoguider. External power is only required for TEC operation.

The Orion StarShoot G3 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera is our most affordable 16-bit, cooled CCD imaging camera. In fact, it’s one of the most affordable feature-packed cameras available to astrophotographers today!
