Astrovid StellaCam3 Monochrome Video Imaging System
How about if you could beat the seaing. Not only does the Astrovid StellaCam III revolutionize the world of video astronomy, but it will help you see faint objects in greater detail than you've ever before. Because of a superb eyepiece camera for taking photographs of the planets, a deep sky imaging tool and a highly sensitive video integration system!
Telescopes will perform very well at f/6 for deep sky imaging, however for maximum deep sky penetration you should make the optical system as fast as possible. The commercial f/3.3 focal reducers work quite well. There is no amplifier glow in this camera, even with exposures of two minutes and longer. The Sony HAD CCD sensor used in the StellaCam 3 is quite low in noise so star images are very round. You will see the most detail possible in all of your deep sky, lunar, solar, and planetary images!
In the unlimited exposure mode any length of exposure is possible with the Stellacam 3. One minute exposures show an incredible amount of detail, but you do not have to stop there. You can go as long as you want in terms of exposure time. You can really fine tune the exposure to your mount. If your mount is accurate to 37 seconds you can go up to that point. If it is a more accurate mount you can expose longer. Objects like Stephen's Quintet are not merely just detectable but vast structure is visible in 10 inch telescopes! NGC 7331 shows dust lanes and all of the companion galaxies and comets of magnitude 15.5 or fainter are seen in detail in 1 minute exposures.
There is also a variable gain going from 0dB - 38db. This variable gain can help you fine tune the sensitivity of your Astrovid StellaCam 3 astronomy video camera. A small increase in gain can add much greater sensitivity to your camera. We allow the gain to be fine tuned, as we want to preserve as much detail as possible in the image. The gain is not boosted or hypered to such high levels that this leads to increased artifacts and less dynamic range. You will see more detail in your objects with the StellaCam 3.... Faint objects way beyond what you can normally see in your telescope will become the norm for your observing sessions!
