Description

Caution: When using any camera to image the Sun, always use appropriate solar filters.

The acclaimed Deep Sky Imager (DSI) camera series is back, and it’s more advanced than ever. Equipped with a 16MP Panasonic CMOS image sensor, regulated two-stage thermo-electric cooler, and 3.8µm pixels, the new DSI-IV is the ideal camera for all of your astrophotography pursuits. The low-noise, high-resolution and fast USB 3.0 readout make this camera suitable for both deep-sky and planetary imaging, making it one of the most versatile astronomy cameras available.

The DSI-IV offers immense value beyond the camera itself. It not only comes with its own high-quality, weather-resistant hard carrying case and AC power adapter, but we’ve included a new version of SkyCapture camera control software. With complete camera control, SkyCapture can run automatic image capture sequences without the need to purchase additional software. Capture high-quality images and video of galaxies, nebulae, and other beautiful objects of the night sky with Meade's DSI-IV.
