Product description

The Omegon Pro GUIDE 2000 Camera is an advanced autoguiding solution. Additionally, it is suited for first steps in planetary, lunar and even deep-sky astrophotography, in Full HD!

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.

Deep-Sky Astrophotography: The high sensitivity of this modern CMOS chip makes the imaging of Nebulas and Galaxies much easier than it was just a few years ago. These faint objects are hard to capture, but thanks to the high quantum efficiency and low read noise of the sensor you can create images showing details imperceivable through visual astronomy.

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.

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

Good guide camera

Review by Gabi07 on 08.03.2024 11:44:52

( 5 / 5 )

I have this camera for 2-3 years.
I used as guide camera and working very well.
I used with KStars/Ekos (from various sources: Stellarmate and different Ubuntu versions. Different hardware: Raspberry PI 4, miniPC, laptops).
On linux no need drivers to be installed.

Avoid this camera

I have been trying to make this camera work with INDI/Kstars for a couple of years now, and it has caused me nothing but frustrations. It doesn't connect at all 99% of the time, or it times out after a few seconds. Changing cables, USB ports, restarting etc. doesn't seem to work.

Direct connection, INDI connection... same problem all the time, and the rare few times it actually connects (and stays connected), it tends to lose track of the guide star after a very short period of time (it has of course been thoroughly focused using a Bahtinov Mask). Not trustworthy at all, I'm afraid, so I will be looking into other guide cameras like ZWO, QHY etc. from now on.
