About the Imaging Source DBK 21AU618.AS

The Imaging Source DBK 21AU618.AS Color USB Astronomy Camera will allow you to capture breath taking lunar and planetary detail in color. The exceptionally high frame rate "freezes" the atmospheric turbulence that plagues less sensitive, slower cameras. The advanced progressive scan CCD provides amazing resolution compared to inferior webcam and CMOS type imagers. No need to capture individual RGB frames with this imager making it perfect for people just beginning imaging of Solar System objects.

Imaging Source DBK 21AU618.AS Includes

  • The Imaging Source DBK 21AU618.AS Color USB Astronomy Camera
  • Software Bundle
  • Imaging Source Warranty

Imaging Source DBK 21AU618.AS Features

  • Up to 60 FPS: With 60 FPS (frames per second), the DBK 21AU618.AS is the fastest within its category. It is ideally suited to color astrophotography, in which very fast image sequences should be captured
  • Color Interpolation: For visualization applications, it does not make sense to view the RAW image stream from the CCD chip. It must be interpolated, before it may be viewed or saved in common formats. IC Capture.AS perform color interpolation, thus reducing the load on the DBK 21AU618.AS's processor
  • Sony ICX618AQA 1/4 " CCD Chip: The DBK 21AU618.AS ships with the color Sony ICX618AQA progressive scan CCD chip. With its 1/4 " format, the CCD chip produces a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Even at very long exposure times - up to 60 minutes exposure are possible - noise is minimal
  • No Compression, No IR Cut Filter: The DBK 21AU618.AS does not compress the video stream it outputs - the video data that is captured by the CCD chip is outputted directly by the USB connector
  • High Speed Data Transfer Via USB: In order to transfer the vast amount of data created by the stream of uncompressed and lossless color images to the host PC, you need a very high speed bus. Hence, the DBK 21AU618.AS is fitted with a fast USB connector
