This is a superb entry level version of the GPCAM for video astronomy or planetary imaging. The GPCAM enables Live Stacking for real-time viewing of deep-sky objects, allowing you to see objects which are simply not visible with the naked eye and small telescopes.
Replace your eyepiece with a GPCAM and prepare to be amazed by the detail and colour you can see in for example, the Messier objects with Live Stacking. Our solar system is covered too. The camera runs in high speed video mode allowing you to capture .SER files, which can be enhanced using free software AutoStakkert and Registax for amazingly sharp views of the moon and planets.
Deep sky long-exposure imaging is possible in long exposure mode, and you can learn more about astrophotography this way with the output of true RAW .FITS files, compatible with any astro imaging software.
The GPCAM225C is an all-in-one General Purpose astronomy camera with a 1.2mpx Sony CMOS IMX225 Colour sensor. It's the size of a small eyepiece, and weighs about 70 grams.
You can image the Moon, Sun and Planets in full HD high speed video mode, or take long exposure deep-sky images.
This camera will work with almost any telescope which has the standard 1.25" "push-fit" adaptor. Just focus using an eyepiece, drop in the camera and you are ready to explore the night sky with enhanced digital vision.

By attaching the web camera to a telescope using the special type of adapter, it is possible to take up-close photos of planets. Replace the webcam’s lens by a special type of adapter called a webcam-to-telescope adapter. Insert the webcam with an adapter into the eyepiece barrel of the telescope’s focuser. The camera is now ready for planetary imaging!
