Product Description

The Starlight Xpress Trius SX-825 CCD Camera features the Sony ICX825AQA Exview HAD CCD Chip, well known for its ultra-low dark current making dark currents virtually unnecessary for deep sky, extended IR response and vertical anti-blooming. The 1,447,680 x 6.45 uM pixel format results in a 9 x 6.7mm array. In addition, the anti-blooming features minimally affect linearity so there is no last active area. The high maximum quantum efficiency of 77% increases the sensitivity of a wide range of wavelengths, especially in the near UV to IR.

Starlight Xpress has included a high performance cooler and a dry Argon-filled CCD chamber to maintain a -40C delta T cooling, therefore improving imaging and sensitivity.

Computer interface is done with a USB 2.0 for sub-1 second downloads on a PC without the cable tangling irritation by using a single USB cable for controlling all the features.

  • Triple output powered USB hub built-in for guider and wheel control etc.
  • Built-in autoguider interface and output - compatible with the optional dedicated external guide camera.
  • Built-in dual serial ports for accessory control - directly drive filter wheels, GOTO scopes etc.
  • 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 70mm long - less than 300 grams load on the telescope
