The naming of Player One Astronomy cameras is unique. For example, we name the planetary cameras after planets (They are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, Earth is not included). The size of each planet to a certain extent, represents the size of camera sensors. We name Saturn with a 1-inch sensor camera, and for Mars, we name it with  a ½.8 inch senor camera. All camera names will be engraved on the housing of the cameras.
