The Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI) is an X-ray slit camera aboard the International Space Station. The device is part of the Japanese Experiment Module.

MAXI conducts a full sky survey every 96 minutes searching for variations in X-ray sources.

MAXI helped discover the rapidly rotating black-hole/star system MAXI J1659-152.[1]
