About Starlight Xpress Trius SX-25C

The Starlight Xpress Trius SX-25 USB Hub Color CCD Camera System utilizes a Sony ICX453 Sensor with 6.1 million pixels. Super low-noise performance with fast download times of approximately 2 million pixels per second. A complete powered USB hub has been incorporated into the Starlight Xpress Trius SX-25 USB Hub Color CCD Camera which offers three USB 2.0 ports at the rear of the camera. It fitted with a new peltier cooler configuration to go along with an Argon-Filled CCD chamber, allowing a greater differential cooling delta to be achieved. The Starlight Xpress Trius SX-25 USB Hub Color CCD Camera boasts outstanding construction in a compact, light-weight package.

Starlight Xpress Trius SX-25C Features

  • Very large, high resolution 'SuperHAD' CCD chip, with 6,000,000 x 7.8uM square pixels in a 23.4 x 15.6mm array. Size equivalent to APS film
  • Single-shot color, using a Bayer matrix of R, G and B on-chip filters. No filter wheel required
  • Triple USB hub for accessories, built-in
  • High performance two stage cooler for better than -35 C chip temperature reduction
  • Dry Argon chamber fill for improved cooling performance
  • Exceptionally low dark signal - No dark frames necessary for most deep sky objects
  • Exceptionally effective anti-blooming with minimal effect on linearity and no lost active area
  • High sensitivity, equivalent to 60% QE at peak of green filters
  • Back focal length 17mm +/-1mm
  • Built-in super high speed USB 2.0 interface (USB 1.1 compatible) for approx. 3.5 second downloads
  • Built-in autoguider output
  • Single USB cable control for all features - get rid of that dangerous cable tangle!
  • Only one computer needed to control all of the devices and functions
  • Very low power consumption. Less than 1.5 amps at 12v DC
  • Compact and lightweight - only 75mm in diameter x 100mm long - less than 500 grams load on the 'scope
