Product Description

Rear Camera Panel, Fused Silica Window, Efficient Cooling System, Argon Filled CCD Filter, Unique Tilted Camera Front

Major features:

  • Very large, high resolution 'SuperHAD' CCD chip, with 10,202,400 x 6.05uM square pixels in a 23.4 x 15.6mm array.
  • Single-shot colour, using a Bayer matrix of R, G and B on-chip filters. No filter wheel required.
  • Triple USB hub for accessories, built-in.
  • High performance two stage cooler for better than -35 C chip temperature reduction.
  • Dry Argon chamber fill for improved cooling performance.
  • Exceptionally low dark signal - No dark frames necessary for most deep sky objects.
  • Exceptionally effective anti-blooming with minimal effect on linearity and no lost active area.
  • High sensitivity, equivalent to 55% QE at peak of green filters.
  • Back focal length 17mm +/-1mm.
  • Built-in super high speed USB 2.0 interface for approx. 10 second downloads.
  • Built-in autoguider output.
  • Single USB cable control for all features - get rid of that dangerous cable tangle!
  • Very low power consumption. Less than 1.5 amps at 12v DC.
  • Compact and lightweight - only 75mm in diameter x 70mm long - less than 500 grams load on the telescope.
