The Revolution Imager Advanced Camera Imaging kit provides the ability for those who are new to astronomy to view and image Solar system and deep sky objects. As users advance into astro imaging it can continue to serve as a camera guider.
The Revolution Imager Advanced Camera Imaging Kit features Sony’s IMX224 high resolution, low-noise CMOS sensor. The higher resolution allows users to see more details as they experiment with more advanced astrophotography techniques. It also makes it a great camera for planetary imaging.
The camera also features a standard guide-port giving users the ability to use it as a guide camera. The sensor is also sensitive enough with short and long exposures to give great results on deep sky objects. Because the camera is powered entirely from a computer’s USB port, it’s a simple one-cable connection to get up and running.
The camera comes bundled with Touptek’s Toupsky software which offers features such as live stacking, histogram controls, dark field correction and time lapse recording. Included in the package is a CDROM with software and drivers for Windows systems. Mac and Linux systems are supported but the Toupsky application does not contain all the features of the Windows version (such as Live Stacking and Dark Field correction) The camera has an ASCOM driver so it can be used with other software, such as Sharpcap.

– Touptek IMX224 Camera
