Moravian Instruments G1 CCD
Every year you can come and see some of these great Moravian Instruments CCD cameras that we would usually showcase at the International Astronomy Show, the European Astrofest, the Herstmonceux Astronomy Festival and other local events. The international Astronomy Show usually take place in the beginning or middle of October at Stonleigh Park (near Leamington Spa, Warwich and Coventry), the European Astrofest in the beginning of February at the Kensington Town Hall and the Herstmonceux Astronomy Festival at the "The Observatory Science Center" (former Royal Observatory).
Designed and built in Europe, the wide range of high-end CCD cameras for astro photography and various fields of scientific research cannot stay unnoticed.
We have seen comparison reports of these cameras with other well known cameras and were amazed how well these cameras performed and their cooled cameras provided beautiful, low noise images.
You might find CCD cameras with the same sensors, but the sensor is not all what matters. The high level of integration of post processing circuitry, robust metal housing and other clever features make these cameras exceptional in both quality and value for money.
For beginners for guiding and imaging the Moon and planets we would recommend the G1-0300. Now available at recently lowered price.
The G1-1200 is the best choice for beginners with somewhat higher budget or those with some previous experience in astrophotography.
The G2-8300 is simply our bestseller that is suitable for a wide range of astrophotography; not surprisingly most of the published photos were made by these cameras.
The G3-11000 offers the best price/chip area ratio, whilst the greatest of all, the G4-16000 is the ultimate CCD camera for any amateur astro photographer or even a professional!
