About the Imaging Source DFK 31AU03.AS

The Imaging Source DFK 21AU618.AS Color USB Astronomy Camera ships 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.

The DFK 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. Thanks to this extremely high quality, the Sony ICX204AK CCD chip is also often used in other scientific, industrial and medical image processing applications.

Imaging Source DFK 31AU03.AS Includes

  • The Imaging Source DFK 31AU03.AS Color USB Astronomy Camera
  • Software Bundle
  • The Imaging Source Warranty

Imaging Source DFK 31AU03.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 DFK 31AU03.AS's processor
  • IR Cut Filter As Standard: Unlike the human eye, CCD chips are sensitive to near infrared light (wavelengths over 700 nm). The DFK 31AU03.AS ships with an IR cut filter as standard and is thus suited to applications in which these wavelengths would lead to interference or undesirable results
  • 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 DFK 31AU03.AS is fitted with a fast USB connector
