About Opticstar DS-145C

The Opticstar DS-145C ICE Color CCD Camera with fan-assist is a native 1.4 mega-pixel 16-bit greyscale CCD imager with a large and highly sensitive EXview Sony HAD Chip of 2/3" diagonal (ICX285AQ). The DS145C ICE uses the all new Z-MAX high-speed platform which adds a host of desirable features to this high quality camera.

Unlike other cameras in its class, gain support, noise reduction and black level are all implemented in the camera hardware and applied to the signal prior to the data been sent to the PC, thus ensuring the highest quality signal and brightest image possible at typical speeds of 3fps @ 1434x1050 in uncompressed RAW format.

Opticstar DS-145C Features

  • Hardware Gain: The camera's advanced features can easily be demonstrated in StarView. The StarView mode is a real time video mode with exposure times up to 10 seconds per frame. There is no need to use any bias frames or perform any color synthesis
  • High Quality Construction: The camera electronics and sensor are housed inside a high quality aluminium body that entirely seals the sensor and on-board electronics from the outside environment
  • Nebulosity Software: Nebulosity is designed to be a powerful, but simple to use camera control and image processing application for Opticstar CCD cameras
  • Auto-Guiding: The Opticstar deep sky cameras (DS-xxx) can be used in conjunction with the Opticstar AG-130M COOLAIR Auto-guiding Kit to deliver a complete imaging solution
