  • 5 Mega pixel color sensor with On Semi Conductor’s breakthrough low-noise CMOS imaging technology to dramatically reduce image noise levels
  • Software automatically filters out video frames most affected by poor atmospheric conditions, leaving only the sharpest, clearest frames to be stacked and aligned into one high-quality image
  • View and capture live video on your computer
  • Manually adjust gain, contrast, exposure time, frame rate and color saturation using your PC
  • Machined aluminum 1.25" adapter barrel with C-threads for direct threaded connection to almost any telescope
  • Celestron offers a wide array of high-quality, affordable, and user-friendly planetary imagers! Click here to learn more on how to choose an imager that’s right for you.

    Capture high-resolution planetary, lunar and solar images with almost any telescope with the NexImage 5 Solar System Imager. Combined with the included software package, NexImage 5 brings out tremendous detail and produces images rivaling those taken with astronomical cameras costing hundreds more.

    Simply point your telescope at the Moon or a planet and record a quick video. The included software analyzes each frame of video, throws away the fuzzy ones, and perfectly aligns the remaining images. The result is a bright, clear image with the maximum amount of color and detail. NexImage 5 is a great way to get started with astroimaging, especially if you live in a light-polluted area. If you can see the planet the sky, you can image it with NexImage 5!
