Whether used during the day or at night, our new Orion StarShoot AllSky Camera will show you everything in the sky from horizon to horizon on a TV, laptop, or PC with its 180° “fisheye” view. At night, the StarShoot AllSky provides a live view of the entire starry sky, which you can easily broadcast over the internet with the included Orion Video Capture Device. Watch the constellations as they appear to move across the sky on their perpetual dance around Polaris. See bright planets as they orbit, and watch the Moon rise, set and change phases night to night. The StarShoot AllSky Camera can also catch passing meteors, satellites, aircraft, and more celestial phenomena. If you’re lucky enough to live in aurora country, the AllSky includes software to make stunning time-lapse movies of the beautiful northern lights.
StarShoot AllSky’s rugged weatherproof and tamper-resistant housing features small rubber feet for portable use, and permanent mounting brackets are available (sold separately) for outdoor installations. Set one up at your favorite observing site or home observatory to see if seeing conditions are worthwhile, before you pack up all your gear!
During daylight hours, the color StarShoot AllSky Camera becomes a real-time window for watching sunrises, sunsets, cloud activity, moving storms, lightning and other atmospheric phenomena such as aurorae, rainbows, sundogs, crepuscular rays, and more! Unlike competing models, the StarShoot AllSky Camera provides a clean, clear view during the day with no blooming, or CCD overload, in direct sunlight (blooming causes a distracting swath of hot pixels to display, ruining daytime views in similar cameras).
Footage from the StarShoot AllSky Camera can be recorded using the included Orion Video Capture Device and included software to make time lapse images, detect and send meteor images via email or FTP to a website, broadcast your sky live over the internet, and more! Featuring a sensitive, low-lux color CCD imaging sensor and high-quality Fujinon f/1.4 fisheye lens housed in a robust, weatherproof and tamper-resistant domed housing, the StarShoot AllSky has a fast 30 fps frame rate to catch even fleeting moments of activity in the sky. The StarShoot AllSky Camera’s Fujinon fisheye lens is vari-focal from 1.4mm to 3.1mm with a horizontal field angle range of 185-94 degrees, and it features a built-in neutral-density filter. A DC Auto-Iris feature provides pleasing daytime performance free of blooming. The included Orion HandyAVI Special Edition software features easy-to-use meteor detection and time lapse tools. A wired remote control lets you adjust camera settings, and a 50’ RCA cable and 50’ power cable is included.
With seemingly endless application potential, the StarShoot AllSky Camera is yet another astro-video innovation from Orion. Find out how much fun it can be to see the sky – all of it – with this versatile video camera.
