About Opticstar PX-75C

The Opticstar PX-75C Coolair Color Video Camera is the ideal color planetary CCD camera that combines high frame rates with high sensitivity. The PX-75C is also well suited for Lunar and Solar imaging. Please note that for solar imaging, the camera should be used only with an appropriate solar telescope or solar filter.

The PX-75C is particularly well suited for capturing critical type targets including the International Space Station due to its very low noise characteristics and unusually high Gain while retaining the necessary high S/N ratios.

The camera is also ideal for industrial inspection and microscopy applications. Noise reduction, Gain and Region of Interest (ROI) are all features implemented in the hardware to deliver exceptional performance.

Opticstar PX-75C Features

  • Noise Reduction and Cooling: Thermal noise is kept to a minimum via a heat-sink that is directly attached to the back of the Sony CCD sensor and a fan that that draws the heat out of the camera fast
  • Performance: The PX-75C requires a fully featured, full speed USB2.0 port to take advantage of all the camera's advanced features
  • Opticstar View - Camera Control Software: The camera is recommended for lunar and solar imaging. It includes Opticstar View software for image capture and camera control with a point and click interface. It can capture single frames, a series of single frames in BMP format or in AVI video format
  • EtAMCAP - Camera Control Software: EtAMCAP is the second program bundled with the camera. It can be used to control the camera and capture video in AVI format
  • Image Quality: The PX-75C camera can stream and store video to disk at up to 20 frames per second at 1024x768 resolution, it can also grab single frames at 1024x768
