50000021: Levenhuk T510 NG Digital Camera
Levenhuk T510 NG Digital Camera is a wonderful way not only to observe the celestial sphere but also to take pictures along the way. A 5-Mpx camera allows you to capture very sharp, clear images of celestial objects in high resolution, and—even better—it may be used with a telescope of any brand or optical design. It is reliable and very easy to use, even if this is your first try at astrophotography.
To begin, just attach the camera to the focuser in place of the eyepiece and connect it to your PC via a USB cable (included in the kit). Now you can observe space in real time on your monitor and save the images on your hard drive. The USB connection also acts as a power supply. 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.
The latest version of Levenhuk ToupView for Windows (release date: 11/20/2013) supports eight languages: English, French, German, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese,Traditional Chinese, Turkish.
