In good used condition

Revolution Imager R2 fits any standard 1.25″ focuser and lets you see much fainter objects than the human eye ever could. This is a powerful and complete system, with 7″ colour monitor, R2 imager, advanced multi-part 1.25″ adapter and focal reducer system, IR block filter plus (NEW) USB (5v) – 12v converter cable and (NEW) USB Video Grabber.

We can’t import or ship Lithium Ion batteries legally, so now supply a USB (5v) to 12v  converter cable that  allows you to power the imager from a standard 2A+ USB mobile ‘phone charger or power bank. You can also use a 12 volt DC centre positive 2.1mm/5.5mm  supply as used by many mounts and cameras.

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.

The Revolution Imager includes everything you need to get up-and-running and get the most out of your existing telescope. Included are:

  • Portable 7″ colour monitor.
  • 0.5x (variable system) Focal Reducer – to dramatically widen and brighten the field of view.
  • UV/IR filter.
  • Hand-held remote control to control the camera.
  • Shock-proof carry case.
  • All required cables.
  • 5 Volt to 12 Volt converter cable (needs 2A+ standard USB socket from charger or power bank)
  • USB Video Capture Dongle

The newest 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!
