Celestron's Skyris 132M and 132CCelestron continues its partnership with high-end video camera manufacturer The Imaging Source, releasing the Skyris 132M and 132C (monochrome and color) cameras for $369.95 each. Both cameras feature the state-of-the-art Aptina AR0132AT CMOS sensor with a 1,280 x 960  array of 3.75-micron-square pixels. Each unit's high-speed USB 3.0 data transfer allows users to record up to 60 full-resolution frames per second (fps), or up to 200 fps when using a region-of-interest subframe, which is particularly useful when imaging the planets.
