Description

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!

FAQ

Q:

My NexImage camera is properly connected to my Windows 10 computer, but the camera is not recognized by the iCap software. How can I get iCap to recognize the camera so I can use the software to capture images?

A:

For PCs running Windows 10 versions 1803 or newer, there is a camera privacy setting that grants permission to apps to access the camera. This needs to be enabled in Windows. To do this, go to Settings > Privacy > Camera, and turn on “Allow apps to access your camera.”

Q:

Are the NexImage cameras Mac OS compatible?

A:

Yes, using the open source software provided under the Support & Downloads tab on this webpage. oaCapture is used for camera control, and Lynkeos is used for image processing. Please consult the “Open Source Software Installation – Mac OS” document also found under the Support & Downloads tab.
