The Levenhuk T130 PLUS Digital Camera is an accessory that every amateur astronomer should have. It allows you to photograph the night sky and record bright videos of your observations. The camera has a 1.3 megapixel sensor and gives an image resolution of up to 1280x1024 pixels. Video can be shot at a frame rate from 15 to 50 frames per second. With this camera, you will not miss a single moment in the sky!
The camera is installed in the 1.25'' telescope focuser in place of a regular eyepiece. It is connected to a computer via a standard USB cable and operates as a digital eyepiece. You will see the picture on the computer screen in real time.
The camera has high sensitivity and allows you to adjust the shutter speed to avoid accidental overexposure. The Levenhuk T130 PLUS camera will prove invaluable while taking pictures of the Moon and large objects of the Solar system.
