C1 Series CMOS Cameras
The C1 series cameras with global shutter CMOS sensors were designed to be small, lightweight imagers for Moon and planets and for automatic telescope guiding. With proper image calibration, C1 cameras provide surprisingly good results also in entry-level deep-sky imaging. The used CMOS sensors response to light is linear up to very close to saturation point, so, C1 cameras can be used for scientific applications like variable star research, too.
C2 Series CMOS Cameras
The cooled C2 series global shutter CMOS cameras were developed for imaging under extremely low-light conditions in astronomy, microscopy and similar areas. Mechanical design of this series inherits from earlier CCD-based G2 Mark II cameras, which makes the C2 series fully compatible with vast range of telescope adapters, off-axis guider adapters, internal or external filter wheels, Camera Ethernet adapters, guiding cameras etc.
Large format G4 CCD cameras Mark II
G4 Mark II cameras inherited all features from the previous generation, like precise electronics providing uniform frames and extremely low read noise, reliable mechanical shutter, modular mechanical construction ensuring compatibility with wide variety of accessories. But Mark II cameras bring some important enhancements, like much faster download speeds and adjustable (tiltable) telescope adapters.
Universal cooled G3 CCD cameras Mark II
G3 CCD cameras offer all essential astronomical camera features like great sensitivity, low noise, efficient and regulated cooling, robust design, rich set of accessories and software support and especially large sensor area for affordable price. And Mark II series of G3 cameras inherits all these features, but brings some significant enhancements, like much faster download speeds and adjustable (tiltable) telescope adapters.
Universal cooled G2 CCD cameras Mark II
The cooled G2 series Mark II CCD cameras were developed for imaging under extremely low-light conditions in astronomy, microscopy and similar areas. Design of this series inherits from earlier G2 Mark I cameras but brings some significant enhancements. G2 cameras employ precise electronics providing uniform frames and extremely low read noise limited only by CCD detector itself.
Large format G4 CCD cameras
G4 cameras are capable to use large CCD detectors with 36 × 36 mm area, which is 50% more than the area of classical film frame. Precisely regulated cooling keeps the CCD on constant temperature, which allows quality image calibration.
Universal cooled G3 CCD cameras
G3 cameras can be equipped with CCD detectors up to 24 × 36 mm. Precisely regulated and efficient cooling of the CCD more than 50C below ambient temperature allows quality image calibration. There are mechanical shutter and filter wheel with 5 positions for 2 inch filters inside the camera head.
Universal cooled G2 CCD cameras
G2 cameras were designed for demanding scientific applications and for high-end astrophotography. Very high quantum efficiency (more than 85% in the case of G2-3200 camera) allows capturing of very faint objects. High quality electronics provides uniform images without artifacts and the read noise is limited by the CCD detectors themselves.

Guiding and imaging G0 and G1 CCD cameras
G0 and G1 CCD cameras are ideally suited for imaging of Moon, planets and bright deep-sky objects. High sensitivity, low noise, fast image download, electronic shutter and integrated “autoguider” port also allow G1 cameras to guide astronomical telescope mounts.
Moravian Camera Ethernet Adapter
Moravian Camera Ethernet Adapter allows connection of Cx and Gx series cameras (models G0 to G4) to the control computer using Ethernet interface and TCP/IP protocol stack (this means over Local or Wide Area Networks). Single Moravian Camera Ethernet Adapter contains up to four USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports and allows connection of up to four Cx or Gx cameras at the same time.
