About this item

The Farpoint OpticStar DS-142M 1.4MP Ice Camera's electronics and sensor are housed inside a high quality aluminum body that entirely seals the sensor and on-board electronics from the outside environment. This is important as it protects the camera internals from high humidity and water running down the telescope and into the camera damaging the electronics or sensor, quite common in inadequate camera designs. The camera relies for fast data transfers on an efficient USB2.0 sub-system.
