Meade-LPIMeade Instruments introduces a new planetary video camera. The LPI-G camera ($219.95) features the highly sensitive AR 130 CMOS detector with a 1,280-by-960 array of 3.75-micron pixels. This USB-2.0 camera is capable of recording up to 28 frames per second at full resolution, or 30 frames per second using a 640 x 480 region-of-interest. Additionally, the camera can function as an autoguider for deep-sky imagers, and it connects to your mount through an ST-4 autoguider port. The camera is available with color or monochrome detectors. Each purchase includes a 2-meter USB 2.0 cable, a guiding cable, a C-mount-to-114-inch nosepiece adapter, and a CD with ASCOM drivers and the company's Sky Capture control software.
