Details

Major features:

  • Bayer matrix single-shot colour version of the Trius H674 mono camera.
  • 2/3" format, high resolution 'EXview' CCD chip, with 2,830,000 x 4.54uM square pixels in a 10.97mm diagonal array. 
  • Exceptionally low dark signal - No dark frames necessary for most deep sky objects.
  • Very high sensitivity - 77% QE at peak in yellow light - 65% at H alpha (656 nm)
  • Exceptionally effective anti-blooming with minimal effect on linearity and no lost active area.
  • High speed USB 2.0 interface for approx. 2 second downloads.
  • Three port powered USB hub built-in.
  • Dry Argon filled CCD chamber.

 

  • Built-in autoguider output - compatible with most mounts.
  • Built-in triple USB hub ports for accessory control - directly drive filter wheels, GOTO 'scopes etc.
  • Single USB cable control for all features - get rid of that dangerous cable tangle!
  • Two stage cooler with dry Argon filled CCD chamber.
  • Very low power consumption. Less than 1.5 amps at 12v DC.
  • Compact and lightweight - only 75mm in diameter x 70mm long - less than 500 grams load on the telescope.

 

Specifications:

  • CCD type: Sony ICX674ALG (mono) EXview CCD with ultra low dark current and vertical anti-blooming.

  • CCD Image area: 8.81mm (Horizontal) x 6.63mm (Vertical).
  • CCD quality: Grade 1 or better - No bad columns, no dead pixels, no more than 50 'hot' pixels (saturated in <10 seconds).
  • Spectral Response: QE max at 580nM (~77%), 50% roll-off at 360nM and 770nM. 
  • Readout Noise: Less than 7 electrons RMS - typically ONLY 5 electrons! 
  • Full-well capacity: Greater than 20,000 e- (unbinned)
  • Anti-blooming: Overload margin greater than 800x.
  • Dark current: Less than 0.002 electrons/second @ - 10C CCD temperature.
  • Data format: 16 bits.
  • System gain:  0.3 electrons per ADU
  • Computer Interface: Built-in USB 2.0 compatible interface.

  • Power requirements: 115VAC / 240VAC @ 12VA, or 12VDC @ 900mA max.
  • Cooling system: Regulated set-point cooling supply with thermoelectric cooler to give a minimum CCD temperature of approximately -30C below ambient. 
  • Size: 75 x 70mm black anodised aluminium barrel with 42mm 'T2' thread at the CCD window end & input/output plugs at rear. CCD alignment screws are provided for setting the chip parallel to the focal plane.
  • Weight: approx. 400g.
