Whether used during the day or at night, our Orion StarShoot AllSky Camera II will show you everything in the sky from horizon to horizon with its 180° "fisheye" view.

At night, the StarShoot AllSky II provides a live view of the entire starry sky, which can easily be broadcasted over the internet. 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 II can also catch passing meteors, satellites, aircraft, and other celestial phenomena thanks to its 180° view. If you're lucky enough to live in aurora country, the Orion StarShoot AllSky II includes software to make stunning time-lapse movies of the beautiful northern lights.

During daylight hours, the full-color StarShoot AllSky Camera II becomes a real-time window for watching sunrises, sunsets, cloud activity, lightning and other atmospheric phenomena such as aurorae, rainbows, sundogs, crepuscular rays and more! Unlike similar competing models, the StarShoot AllSky Camera II 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 other cameras).      

This second generation AllSky Camera II includes upgraded Orion HandyAVI Special Edition software with convenient computer controls that make setup and adjustment of settings easy from even long distances. The upgraded software makes it easy to share all of your sky online with the world (requires internet connection and standard FTP capabilities) while easy-to-use meteor detection and time lapse tools let you get the most out of this versatile camera. The included software is compatible with Windows XP, Vista (32 bit and 64 bit), 7, and Windows 8 Operating Systems. A 50' dual-purpose RCA/power cable is included.

The rugged weatherproof and tamper-resistant housing of the StarShoot AllSky Camera II 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!

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! With its sensitive, low-lux color CCD imaging sensor and f/1.4 lens housed in a robust, certified weatherproof and tamper-resistant domed housing, the StarShoot AllSky II has a fast 30 fps frame rate to catch even fleeting moments of activity in the sky.

Find out how much fun it can be to see the sky - all of it - with this fun and versatile camera.

The Orion StarShoot AllSky Camera II is compatible with the National Television System Committee (NTSC) standard only, which is used throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South America (excluding Brazil and Argentina), Burma, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Republic of the Philippines, and many Pacific island nations and territories.
