The Orion StarShoot G16 Deep Space Color Imaging Camera is an affordable and larger pixel count deep-sky astrophotography camera based on the Panasonic MN34230PLJ 4/3" 12-bit CMOS chip, with 3.8 micron pixels, and a factory spec'd 16.2M pixel array. Multiple resolution/aspect ratios are available in software, and the total number of pixels clocks in at 4640x3506! Exposures from 0.15ms-3600s and up to 30+ fps means you can shoot planets as well as nebulae. You'll be amazed at the results, all for a modest investment.
The StarShoot G16 features a two-stage regulated thermo-electric cooler with fan, capable of reaching ~40° C below ambient, which dramatically reduces noise. The USB 3.0 interface provides exceptionally fast frame rates and downloads. Power for the camera electronics comes from the USB port, and the TE cooler is powered by an included AC adapter.
A standard t-thread is cut into the front, and with an included 2" nozzle, you can attach the G16 camera to most all telescope configurations, including coma correctors, flatteners, and off-axis guiders. With a built in two-port USB 2.0 hub, your filter wheel and guidescope camera can be wired directly to the G16, which means you'll only have the one USB cable running to your laptop, making cable management much less of a headache!
The one-shot color CMOS chip excels at seeing faint objects in relatively short exposures, and adjustable gain means you can boost the sensitivity in a given exposure.
