About the Opticstar PX-75M

The Opticstar PX-75M Coolair Monochrome Video Camera is the ideal monochrome planetary CCD camera that combines high frame rates with high sensitivity. The PX-75M 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-75M 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.
