With a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels, the astro CCD camera DMK 41AF02.AS is ideally suited for rich captures, full of intricate details. In spite of the high resolution, this telescope camera can capture images with up to 15 frames per second. Using the software - IC Capture.AS - you can capture lossless and uncompressed images sequences as AVI files.
Due to its high resolution, uncompressed output and fast refresh rate, the telescope camera DMK 41AF02.AS produces large amounts of data. In order to transfer these to the host PC, a very fast bus is required. Hence, the camera is fitted with a FireWire connector.
At the heart of the high resolution, telescope camera DMK 41AF02.AS is the CCD ICX205AL, manufactured by Sony. The chip has a 1/2" format and offers a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixel. Even at long exposure times, its noise is minimal. Thanks to the high quality of the ICX205BL CCD chip, it is often deployed in industrial image processing applications.
The CCD camera DMK 41AF02.AS outputs its image data in an uncompressed data stream. IR cut filters, color filters and electronic filters are not deployed in the camera. Thus, the camera produces very true-to-life captures of the night sky.
