The Orion StarShoot G21 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera is a massive pixel count deep-sky astrophotography camera based on the Sony IMX269 12-bit CMOS chip, with 3.3 micron pixels and a factory spec’d 20.9M pixel array.
Multiple resolution/aspect ratios are available in software, all the way up to 5280×3956 pixels! Exposures from 0.1ms-3600s and up to 18 fps full frame (and much higher when subframing) means you can shoot planets as well as nebulae.
The Orion StarShoot G21 features a two-stage regulated thermo-electric cooler with fan, capable of reaching ~40° C below ambient, which dramatically reduces noise. The USB 3.0 interface provides exceptionally fast frame rates and downloads. Power for the camera electronics comes from the USB port, and the TE cooler is powered by an included AC adapter.
A standard t-thread is cut into the front, and with an included 2″ nozzle, you can attach the G21 camera to most all telescope configurations, including coma correctors, flatteners, and off-axis guiders. With a built in two-port USB 2.0 hub, your filter wheel and guidescope camera can be wired directly to the Orion StarShoot G21, which means you’ll only have the one USB cable running to your laptop, making cable management much less of a headache.
Compatible with Win 7/8/10, the camera includes a hard case, along with free control and image acquisition software. You can learn more here
