The Imaging Source’s New Telescope Cameras

Interested in photographing the night sky? The Imaging Source, a company known for high quality imaging equipment, is now offering a line of telescope cameras.

I’ve done just a little bit of star-gazing with a camera in my hand. Astro-photographers seem to run into two problems continuously: first, the cost of equipment makes it an expensive hobby, and second, any photos taken with relatively cheap equipment are guaranteed to have a definite noise problem. The Imaging Source says that their cameras are low noise, however, and the prices are certainly affordable — the cameras range in price from $390 to $870.

There’s one heck of a meteor show in August, and I think I know what I want to photograph it with.
