Bob Pilz and His Lunar Marvels

I have very recently become aware of a premier lunar imager that has been working in our back yard for quite a few years using The Imaging Source cameras. Bob Pilz, who is based in Asheville, NC, USA, has a tremendous portfolio in his galleries and great things to say about his DMK 21AF04. He recently wrote me:

I have been using a DMK 21BF04 for over the last two years to take lunar images. Its low noise, high sensitivity, and excellent capture software have made it a real pleasure to use. It has produced excellent results and is definitely a "best buy" in astronomical imaging systems.

You can see some of the images taken with my 8″ f/6 Newtonian here:

Thanks for a great product.

Your welcome and we welcome any and all feedback (especially the good stuff) from our users regarding astronomy cameras from The Imaging Source. Kudos to Bob and the work done!
