plug it in and "see" with the only complete kit available anywhere
I have attached a composite I did with my R2 imager in Feb. at the Winter Star Party in Chiefland Florida this year. This was with no post processing. Images were captured through my 8" Meade LX90 in Alt Az and captured with Sharpcap. My R2 attached to my 8" gave me better views than the 20" dob that was beside me was seeing. He could not see the Horsehead with a $150 filter, I got a wonderful view without a filter. It was a cold evening with lots of dew but I was sitting in my heated tent warm and dry, controlling my scope with Sky Safari on my iPad and seeing more on my computer screen than my fellow observers and in color no less! I love the detail I am able to see.

"The RI may be the most exciting $300 astronomy purchase I've ever made. I could barely sleep last night after viewing M51, M81, M82 and Jupiter on my first evening with the new gear. I've been in the hobby since 1960 and last night was the first time I experienced the same awe as I did the first time I "discovered" Saturn.

Thanks a lot. I'm really looking forward to using it for our astronomy outreach.......and just to show you that you CAN teach old dogs new tricks...I'm a 72 year old Lady! I really love the new technologies that are coming out now. I've been waiting for something like this very item and, when one of the other people in our club showed up at our last star party with this, I just HAD to have it!!
“ I do believe that the Revolution package will shake-up and wake up new interest in amateur astronomy. One does not have to pack up and drive a distance to get remarkable results. Neighbors' lights are no longer a problem (other than for the ecology).
My neighbor was astounded by some images I showed him on the spot, and was as surprised at the low cost (value) of the video components.
This has definitely rekindled the fire of discovery I felt in prior years, as I hope it will for many others. “
