Deep Sky CCD Imaging

Featuring Meades DSI II Camera

   

Deep Sky Imaging has always been a specialized venue in the Astrophotography Hobby. The first amateur

CCD cameras were low resolution, with very complex software (if any) and required hours of work

to capture and process. Meade changed all of that with there DSI (Deep Sky Imager), a single shot color

camera that made Deep Sky Imaging easy, and gave great results. Last year Meade came out with a new 

version, the DSI II. This advanced Camera uses a color filter system to produce top quality images, at both 

a fraction of the price of a professional CCD camera, as well as image quality that will impress even long time

CCD camera users. It uses a high quality Sony CCD chip, and very advanced software, to capture and process

images in realtime. Stacking short captures, and combining tri-color filtered shots, the camera quickly compiles

data for easy processing  For the first time ever, a new user can capture images his first night out, with amazing

results.  Here are some Images taken with the new Camera, as well as some links for more information
