The Levenhuk T300 PLUS Digital Camera is an indispensable tool for astrophotography. This camera allows you to watch the night sky using a computer, take photos of deep-sky objects and record videos of interesting astronomical events. The camera has a 3-megapixel sensor that is great for shooting the Moon and the planets of the Solar system.
This camera was designed for use with a telescope of any type and brand, as a 1.25" adapter is included in the package. After the camera is connected to a computer, it transmits clear and colorful pictures on a screen instantly in real time. The camera does not need to be charged, as it is powered directly from the computer via USB cable.
To make the observation of objects of different brightness easier, the Levenhuk T300 PLUS Digital Camera has a shutter speed control. You will only need to choose the shooting time to get the best quality images. The camera has three preset modes with a frame rate of 8 to 43 frames per second.
