50000019: Levenhuk T130 NG Digital Camera
Levenhuk T130 NG is an indispensable accessory for people who want to try their hand at astrophotography. This camera allows you to capture views of solar system planets and their satellites. More importantly, it is extremely easy to use and will fit any telescope. In fact, Levenhuk T130 NG may be used with telescopes of any optical design or brand.
Everything you need is already included in the kit. Just replace the eyepiece with the digital camera, connect it to a PC via a USB cable, and you’re good to go! Now, the vastness of space may be observed on your PC monitor, in real time! You can capture the most stunning views and save them in the desired format for future editing. The camera is compatible with focusers of 1.25" in barrel diameter. Its field of view matches that of your telescope.
This camera may be connected to your PC via a USB 2.0 port (note that when plugged into a USB 1.0 or 1.1, the camera may operate incorrectly). The USB cable also acts as a power cable, so you do not have to worry about batteries or the power supply when it is plugged in. A number of user settings are available for camera operation, such as the white balance and exposure control. All images of celestial objects that you take will, therefore, always be sharp and clear. Included with the camera is a CD with Levenhuk ToupView software that allows you to edit images on your PC.
