About the SBIG AllSky-340

The SBIG AllSky-340 is a monochrome All Sky camera that uses a Kodak KAI-340 CCD sensor, with 640x480 pixels, 7.4 microns square and a high gain output stage for excellent sensitivity. The All Sky camera incorporates the SBIG Smart Guider Camera inside an aluminum enclosure with an acrylic dome to protect the optional fisheye lens. The image shown above was a 60 second exposure, taken from a light polluted backyard - the first quarter moon had just set behind the roof.

The SBIG AllSky-340 All Sky Camera has some very interesting features that make it much more versatile than other All Sky cameras that SBIG manufactured in the past. It has a RS-232 link to the PC for control and image download. While this interface is very slow in comparison to USB, it will tolerate 100 ft (30 meter) cable runs. Or, you can throw away the cable and use a Bluetooth wireless link with an optional inexpensive adapter. The unit is low power and can be powered by a solar array (also optional) so you don't need any wires at all running from your PC to the camera. The beauty of this set-up is the fact that the unit can be located where it has a good view of the sky, instead of good access to a power plug or PC.

SBIG AllSky-340 Features

  • The new SBIG AllSky-340 All Sky Camera monitors weather conditions by incorporating the new SBIG Smart Guide Camera inside a weatherproof enclosure that is topped by an acrylic dome
  • The AllSky-340 model uses a monochrome Kodak KAI-340 sensor, which has great sensitivity and has an RS-232 port, capable or tolerating a 100-foot cable, for PC control and image download. Alternatively, you can use an optional Bluetooth device & adapter and go wireless!
  • The SBIG 340 AllSky Camera is excellent for meteor detection
  • The acrylic all-sky dome is heated to keep dew away and dry raindrops quickly. This dome is inexpensive and easily replaced as needed
