Works with Windows 10!

Also compatible with the famous Sharpcap software!

(All Skyris cameras that we sell here, including the 132, 236, 445 and 618, are compatible with Windows 10. You might have to look up the most current drivers on the Imaging Sourcse website if the Celestron software does not work. One of our colleagues uses two 236 models (colour and mono) and a 618 without problems on his Win 10 laptop and PC as well.)

Whether you're an advanced user or a beginner, you'll love creating beautiful astroimages with the Skyris 618M astronomical CCD camera. Capture the Sun, Moon, and planets like never before and create crisp, high-resolution images. Skyris cameras are the first to offer ultra-fast USB 3.0 connections combined with the most popular Sony CCD chips used for planetary imaging. Skyris also features a Celestron-designed camera body which helps dissipate heat to minimize the effect of thermal noise on the CCD.

Celestron Partners with The Imaging Source

For years, The Imaging Source has provided amateur astronomers with high-quality CCD cameras that elevate amateur planetary imaging from a casual hobby into an art form. The Imaging Source's astronomical cameras are known for high quality, value, and performance. Now, Celestron is proud to partner with The Imaging Source on the Skyris line.

Skyris 618M using the Sony ICX618ALA CCD Sensor

Some of the world's most advanced planetary imagers choose this Sony CCD sensor. It is perfectly suited for planetary imaging due to its speed, sensitivity, pixel size, and chip size. With the 618M, you'll be able to image up to 120 frames per second. You'll gather more data in less time, and capture brief moments of stable air to create the sharpest planetary images. This small chip features ample pixel size, making it the ideal match for long focal length telescopes like the Schmidt-Cassegrain and EdgeHD. 

Monochrome Sensor for Maximum Sensitivity

The Skyris 618M is a monochrome camera, offering you the most senstivity for capturing the best possible astroimages. Either use the camera by itself to capture stunning  black-and-white images of the Moon and planets, or attach your own filters and filter wheel to create your own color planetary images. The monochrome camera offers you increased sensitivity and the flexibility to image the way you want.

Included Celestron iCap Software

All Skyris cameras include Celestron iCap capture software and stacking software, for Windows systems only. iCap software allows you to easily control the camera, snap your images or movie file, and export them. Next, you'll bring your images or movies into the stacking software, where you can automatically filter the best images and stack them to create your masterpiece.
