Summary: Very nice video cam! But you have to have a laptop. It works great connected to my Dell Inspiron. The camera connects to the 1.25" eyepiece extension tube very easily. Works great with my Orion 9005 120ST Equatorial Refractor Telescope. Uses a 2.0 USB slot on your laptop.
Do your research before buying any kind of CCD/CMOS imager.

Summary: I've used this on a couple of occasions, and it's not bad for what it is--an entry level imager.

Summary: Won't take your breath away but it's good enough. I believe it is the equivalent of a 5mm eyepiece so it's quite hard to get the planets into the center of your view. It takes a lot of tweaking to get the bands of Jupiter to show which has been my only photographed piece so far.
Summary: Unfortunately its a total disappointment. I have Orion 8" refractor being using it for over 10 years. Well maintained. I saw the reviews of Orion StarShoot Solar System Color Imaging Camera IV and decided to purchase it. I have Mac and based on reviews here was very happy.
Make sure you have a good planetary scope before purchasing

Summary: Never could get anything but a bright light from Jupiter. I could get the moon but that was it. I spoke with the very helpful (not sarcasm) Orion customer service and they could not figure it out. I have a 10" reflector that collects a lot of light.
