All iTelescopes use advanced astronomical CCD cameras which deliver the data as 32bit FITs files to the users FTP collection area. These are raw monochrome images which will need post processing and calibration frames to extract maximum data value and image quality.

We also offer TIFF files via the advanced options section of the plan generator or image series form, as well as .jpeg preview images.

While T3 and T13 are Single Shot Color CCDs, for the remaining systems you will need RGB image processing software to create colour images from the raw monochrome data.
