The GPCAM2 327C is a colour CMOS camera with extremely high sensitivity, designed for video astronomy or EAA. It replaces your telescope eyepiece and comes with AltairCapture and SharpCap PRO software which both enable live video stacking, revealing stunning details on deepsky objects, even with a modest telescope.

The GPCAM2 327C can of course be used for any astronomy application including proper deep-sky imaging and high speed high resolution solar system imaging of the moon, planets. It is an especially good solution for capturing meteors with an all-sky camera dome. (Select optional 120 deg Meteor Lens when ordering).

The Sony IMX327 STARVIS Back Side Illuminated (BSI) sensor is extremely sensitive, the successor to the IMX290 being significantly more sensitive in low light situations. The GPCAM327C camera provides amateur astronomers access to this new Sony sensor at a very reasonable price.

The camera is powered by a USB2.0 cable, enabling the longer cable lengths, and USB2.0 compatibility preferred for EAA (Electronically Assisted Astronomy). The USB connector is heavy duty and will not pull out easily like cheaper cameras, maintaining better contact as your GOTO telescope traverses the sky.
