Product description

The Omegon Pro GUIDE 1200b Camera is a compact and basic autoguiding solution. Additionally, it is suited for first steps in planetary and lunar astrophotography.

Planetary- and Lunar-Astrophotography for Beginners: This is the right camera to start into the fascinating field of solar system astrophotography. Capturing images of Jupiter, Saturn or craters on the Moon just like you can see them through your eyepiece allows you to share your nightly astronomy experiences with your friends and family. Or you can gather around the screen and observe the Moon and planets live together.

Autoguiding: You will find a suitable guide star anywhere in the sky! Even fainter stars are no problem, thanks to the high sensitivity of this modern CMOS sensor. Guide with short exposure times and a high guiding frequencies to correct even small tracking errors of your mount. Native compatibility with PHD2 and an inbuilt ST4 Guide-Port make this the ideal camera for your autoguiding needs.

Functional shape: The sturdy body made from anodized aluminium is shaped like an 1.25" eyepiece and fits every telescope. With a light weight, this camera doesn't put any additional strain on your equipment. The camera's front is equipped with a C- & CS-Mount thread or (through and adapter) a regular 1.25" filter thread. This allows you to directly attach small CCTV lenses or a vast selection of astronomical filters.

Transmission: A filter window protects the sensor chamber from dust and humidity. The Omegon Pro colour cameras are equipped with and infrared-blocking filter. Modern CMOS sensors are sensitive to infrared light, so a correct color representation in the final image is only possible by removing these wavelengths before capture. On the other hand, the Omegon Pro mono cameras feature an anti-reflection window, that is transparent to a wide range of wavelengths from the ultraviolet to the infrared. You can add your own filters for unrestricted control over your transmission curve - invaluable for advanced imaging and photometric applications.

Convenient Capture Software: The downlodable software Omegon AstroPhotoCapture allows straightforward and easy-to-learn camera control. The correct camera settings during the capture process are crucial for astrophotography. AstroPhotoCapture gives you full control over every parameter of your camera, without an overburdening interface. Easy to follow tutorials cover the capture process step for step, to make your first astrophotography session successful. The software is compatible with Windows 8/10/11.

Compatibility: The Omegon Pro cameras are compatible with a wide range of available astrophotography programs through the common interfaces ASCOM and INDI. Native compatibility is also being added to a growing number of programs, like PHD2 and N.I.N.A.

Customer reviews

Works fine with Mac/Linux Raspberry

( 5 / 5 )

I wanted an entry guide mono camera for my setup (Omegon 533 C with Samyang 135mm and iOptron iGuider).
The camera works great with my Mac and my portable setup with the Raspberry. I could say value for money in the category.
