About Imaging Source DBK 31AU03.AS

The Imaging Source DBK 31AU03.AS Color USB Astronomy Camera will allow you to capture superb lunar, planetary and solar images. Fast frame rate and progressive scan CCD "freezes" atmospheric seeing providing sharp, detailed images of the Solar System. One shot color camera requires no RGB filter for making high resolution color images. Capture RAW images off the camera and debayer during post processing for best results.

Imaging Source DBK 31AU03.AS Features

  • High Resolution, Fast Refresh Rate: The camera comes with IC Capture.AS, a comprehensive software package with which you can capture lossless and uncompressed images sequences and write them to disk as AVI files, or as a series of singular bitmaps
  • 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 31AU03.AS's processor
  • Sony ICX204AK 1/3 " CCD Chip: The DBK 31AU03.AS ships with the color Sony ICX204AK progressive scan CCD chip. With its 1/3 " format, the CCD chip produces a resolution of 1024 x 768 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 31AU03.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. Similarly, the camera does not have an IR cut filter, a color filter, nor an other kind of electronic filter
  • 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 31AU03.AS is fitted with a fast USB connector
