Product Description

NexImage 5 Solar System Imager

The planets in the stars can be seen day after day, year after year, time and time again. However, some celestial events such as comets can only be seen once in a lifetime. For these events it is therefore important to capture them on camera a film so that they can be shared with other or looked back on and studied at another time to fully appreciate their full wonder and detail. With the arrival of the digital age, there has been a huge increase in the popularity of astrophotography, which is now equally available to beginners as well as die hard professional astronomers.

The Nex Big Thing in Astrophotography

Capture high-resolution planetary, lunar and solar images with almost any telescope using the NexImage 5 Solar System Imager. Combined with the included software package, the NexImage’s 5 Mega Pixel colour sensor with Micron DigitalClarity Technology dramatically reduces noise levels in images to bring out tremendous detail and produce images rivaling those taken with astronomical cameras costing hundreds more.

Construct the Perfect Image

With a no-fuss direct threaded connection to most telescopes using the integrated aluminium 1.25” adapter barrel with C-threads, it is mere minutes before you are pointing your telescope at the Moon or a planet and recording a video. The camera control software will allow you to manually adjust gain, contrast, exposure time, frame rate and colour saturation from your PC whilst the included software then analyzes each frame of video, throws away the fuzzy ones and perfectly stacks and aligns the sharpest, clearest frames. The result is a bright, clear image with the maximum amount of colour and detail.

NexImage 5 is a great way to get started with astroimaging, especially if you live in a light-polluted area. If you can see the planet in the sky, you can image it with NexImage 5!

Fun camera to use but has a bit of a leaning curve, Iv'e taken great images of the Moon. Saturn and Jupiter still though and I've only had it out 3 times. What the instructions/manual don't tell you is that it is roughly equivalent to a 5mm eyepiece so bar that in mind when trying to find a planet on the computer screen, it takes some time and a very well aligned scope. That said, their is an option called 'binning' and when on its maximum, x4, the view is zoomed out, at the cost of resolution, making it easier to find objects.
Overall it is a fun camera to use and is a well built and solid thing, the amount of USB cable that is supplied is just about enough depending on your set-up, comes supplied with a very handy manual that tells you the basics of how it works and how to use it and process images. Couldn't ask for more for my first astronomy camera.
Thanks for reading.

If I could give the Neximage 5 no stars it would still be too many !
Two faulty on the trot ! Total rubbish !
I've had to return both back to Amazon for a refund. Both had the same fault.
Really bad picture quality and both suffered from lines running across the screen in live mode that are visible on the final AVI.
Really bad picture break up. I tried it on two laptops with the same result .

I wasn't sure whether I was getting the right piece of kit. How wrong was I? For my needs this has proved ideal. Easy to install the software, easy to use and my results so far have been fantastic. Highly recommended for anyone who is thinking of taking their first steps into astrophotography as I am.

This webcam delivers excellent images once you can focus it on the object of interest.
There is a big but ... it is hugely complicated and will challenge your resolve - I have so far ( half a dozen sessions) managed a few half decent images of jupiter and the moon at the lowest resolution setting, but think it will be some time before I can get the best out of it ... I may even need to buy an electronic focusser for my telescope to get the best from it! But I will persevere as I have seen some very impressive results produced by more experienced users.
