Alphonsus is an ancient impact crater on the Moon. Telescope Celestron C8 Camera SvBONY SV205.
I tried the SV205 with an SVBONY focal reducer 0.5x to image the full disk of the Moon on a 60/330 ED refractor on an unguided mount。
Why love SV205?
●Plug and play without driver;real-time dynamic observation by crystal clear image;the image sensor uses dark light compensation technology to greatly improve the camera's image clarity in low light conditions ●In MJPG video format;you can record video quickly and the frame rate up to 30FPS at 2K resolution 1920x1080; if you want high quality image;please choose YUV uncompressed video format;the speed will be 15FPS per second at 3264*2448 resolution ●SV205 camera allows you to capture a real-time video and transport to your laptop or PC; USB 3.0 is much faster than the USB 2.0 ●Share the view of bright planets;the moon;and terrestrial targets through your computer with friends;family and fellow astronomy enthusiasts ●An affordable introduction to the rewarding hobby of astrophotography;Great for lunar and planetary shots;deep-sky objects imaging is not a good choice;machined aluminum 1.25" adapter barrel for direct threaded connection to almost any telescope ●Imaging Sensor This camera uses a 8M Pixel SONY IMX179 imaging sensor with 1.4µmx1.4µm pixel size. ●Capturing Images This type of camera sensor is ideal for capturing images of planets like Saturn, Jupiter and Mars because the images are highly magnified. You can either take single exposures during times of good seeing. Or record video footage (AVI or YUV uncompressed format) and stack the best frames in Registax. ●“Webcam" Style Cameras to compensate for varying levels of transparency in the Earth’s atmosphere. Some of the best planetary images in the world were taken using these inexpensive “webcam” style cameras.
