      5.0 Nice Camera

      Pros:

      Quality Lenses,Compact,Easy to Use,Lightweight

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I bought the Celestron NexImage 5 Imager so I could connect my telescope directly to my laptop. The software is easy to figure out and the image quality is very good. Now I just need a good night of dark skies so I can put it to the test. So far so good.

      5.0 Excellent planetary imager

      Pros:

      Lightweight,Compact,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is the new offering from Celestron as a successor to the original NexImage Planetary Imager. Unlike the original, the NexImage 5 uses a 5MP CMOS sensor instead of a CCD chip. But don't be dissuaded, this is a quality imaging device that delivers good, detailed images of planets. The imager is well built, lightweight and compact and will not add much weight to your telescope. The image capturing software is intuitive and easy to use. Registax 6 is also included for image processing, which does have a small learning curve but is not difficult to learn. Overall it is a solid imager for planetary imaging and a good way to get into astrophotography.
