The Revolution Imager R2 (Camera + Controller only) lets you see much fainter objects than the human eye ever could. Just add your own accessories (telescope adapter, reducer, video capture device, monitor / PC / Laptop, 12 volt power and cables) to unlock the Universe!

Astronomy Magazine’s 2016 Star Product and Sky & Telescopes 2017 Hot Product! This year the Revolution Imager was Astronomy Magazine’s only camera to receive a star product award and one of Sky and Telescope’s Hot Products for 2017!

Now with the R2, all you have to do is make some simple connections and you can use the power of modern technology to see (on the included colour monitor) the mountains, valleys and seas of the Moon. Easily change the exposure of the video camera and seamlessly go to seeing the reds and greens of Nebulosity or even the spiral arms of The Whirlpool Galaxy. All from your backyard using the amazing sensitivity of the most modern Sony imaging chip and built in live automated video processing. You will be blown away at what even the most modest tracking telescopes will show you in just a few seconds of exposure!

This newest version, Revolution Imager R2, has an easier menu to operate, better contrast control, better gain control and finer image processing on board. This new version does a maximum of 5.12 second exposure and stacks up to 6 images internally instead of 5.

This version of the Revolution Imager includes:

  • R2 Imager
  • Hand held remote control to control the camera

This version of the R2 comes with a HD UHTC wired remote that allows left, right and scrolling up through all menus when in CVBS mode.  Using the 2 included AA batteries, navigating to the exposure is easy and maintains complete hands-free operation of the camera during a long exposure!
For more information on using the R2, take a look at the following resources:

1) To assemble the system (applies to the kit but is helpful)

You are now ready to explore the universe!

Insert the Camera into any 1.25” telescope, if your telescope can track the stars by counteracting the Earth’s rotation you will be able to take longer exposures to see fainter objects! Turn the power, use the wired remote to navigate the camera’s menu for longer or shorter exposures to see fainter detail than your eye ever could. Take a look at the “How Do I?” menu for a guide on how to set these options
