Shoot easier with Celestron's Nightscape CCD camera

Having been avid astroimagers for more than six years and having used camera models as different as a DSLR, a one-shot color CCD, and a monochrome CCD, we realize that choosing what equipment to photograph the sky with can be a daunting task. Imagers have to consider many factors: how well the unit cools, its quantum efficiency (how much of the total light the system captures), megapixels — and don’t forget price.

Finding the right combination can take a bit of time and research. Knowing this, we were excited to have the opportunity to test a camera that offers a nice balance of features and price, Celestron’s Nightscape CCD.
