This value-packed kit makes it easy for anyone with a PC or laptop to see a live view of bright objects in the night sky as seen through a telescope, right on your computer screen.
With the included Orion’s StarShoot USB Eyepiece, you can easily view what you see in your telescope on your laptop or desktop PC! The USB eyepiece transmits live images of the Moon, bright planets, Sun (solar filter required), and terrestrial subjects as seen through the telescope to your laptop or desktop PC. Now the whole family, classroom, or astronomical society can enjoy the view right along with you, as if you were all looking through the same telescope. The StarShoot USB eyepiece fits in any telescope with a 1.25" focuser, or a 2"-to- 1.25" step-down adapter. While a telescope attached to a mount equipped with a tracking motor will provide the best results for nighttime use, even non-motorized telescopes like Dobsonian reflectors work well. During daylight hours, the USB eyepiece can add crowd-pleasing performance to any telescope outfitted for terrestrial use. Telescopic views of birds, wildlife, and scenery can be seen and enjoyed on your laptop or desktop PC screen.
As easy as flipping a switch, the included Imaging Flip Mirror makes it easy to find, center, and focus a target object visually with a 1.25" telescope eyepiece (sold separately), then view it with the StarShoot USB Eyepiece. All without swapping out any equipment. It’s a real time saver, making the normally tedious task of focusing quicker and easier.
The included 13% Transmission Moon Filter cuts down the brightness of the view to enhance contrast on bright targets such as the Moon and bright planets.
