About the Imaging Source DBK 41AU02.AS

With its native resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels, the Imaging Source DBK 41AU02.AS is ideally suited to capture highly detailed images of the night sky. The camera ships with IC Capture.AS, a comprehensive software package with which you can capture lossless and uncompressed image sequences and write them to disk as AVI files, or as a series of singular bitmaps.

The DBK 41AU02.AS ships with the color Sony ICX205AK progressive scan CCD chip. With its 1/2" format, the CCD chip produces a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels. Even at very long exposure times - up to 60 minutes exposure are possible - noise is minimal. Thanks to this extremely high quality, the Sony ICX205AK CCD chip is also often used in other scientific, industrial and medical image processing applications.

Imaging Source DBK 41AU02.AS Features

  • 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 41AU02.AS's processor
  • No Compression, No IR Cut Filter: The DBK 41AU02.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 41AU02.AS is fitted with a fast USB connector
