Manufactured by: iNova


The PLA-C+ 310Kp Monochrome CCD Camera is a capable of planetary imaging to autoguiding in very low light. It includes the Sony sensor ICX098BQ (640x480 pixel array).

Due to its excellent sensitivity this camera is ideally suited for planetary imaging with great noise reduction. It provides 2x2 hardware binning (640 x 480) and 5.6μm micron square pixels to detect low light stars for autoguiding.

There are few, if any, CCD imaging devices with this amount of cooling support in this segment. Optional cooling fans will reduce the temperature of the CCD by 36°F/20C, resulting in considerably more clarity for both live imaging and recorded stills and video.


  • FPGA circuit to significantly reduce electronic noise
  • 3 playback speeds CCD / CMOS matrix
  • "energy saving" mode for long exposure
  • Optional cooling is best in class
