Levenhuk T500 PLUS Digital Camera
Camera for telescope. Designed for astrophotography
The Levenhuk T500 PLUS Digital Camera was created specifically for telescopes. This is an excellent accessory for any amateur astrophotography fan. The camera is easy to use: install it in the focuser, connect it to a computer, and start using it. With the Levenhuk T500 PLUS, you can take pictures of the Moon, the planets of the Solar system, their satellites, nebulae and galaxies.
The 5Mpx camera allows you to take pictures of up to 2592x1944 pixels and record video with a frame rate of up to 60 frames per second. These features will allow you to take photos at medium and high magnifications and capture rare astronomical events.
To install the camera in the telescope focuser, a 1.25’’ adapter is used (included in the kit). To connect the camera to a computer, use the supplied USB cable, which is used for transmitting pictures from the camera to a monitor in real time and recharging in the process.
To ensure the best possible performance of your new camera, make sure your computer complies with the system requirements specified by the manufacturer. Compatible OS include Mac, Linux, and Windows. A USB 2.0 port is required to establish a connection. If the software does not run on your computer, please contact us and specify your operating system and its version (for Linux: platform and kernel version).
The latest version of Levenhuk Software for Windows supports eight languages: English, French, German, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Turkish.
