Due to its excellent sensitivity, of the whole visible spectrum, this iNova camera is ideally suited for planetary and lunar observation and imaging.

Product Description

The PLA-M 310Kp Monochrome CCD Camera is a multi-purpose camera capable of planetary/lunar imaging to autoguiding. It includes the new Sony Exview CCD monochrome ICX098BL-E (640x480 pixel array) with very high quantum efficiency with extremely low noise. A high frame rate of 60fps enables you to "freeze-frame" a planetary or lunar image to keep only the best frames

Due to its excellent sensitivity, of the whole visible spectrum, this camera is ideally suited for planetary/lunar imaging. It provides 2x2 hardware binning (640 x 480) to get a 11.2 square pixel for autoguiding.

  • Adjustable exposure time from 0.1ms to infinity.
  • Plugin ASCOM V5 tested with software V1.12 PHDGuiding, AstroArt V4, V5 and MaximDL Prism.
  • CCD Sony Super HAD ICX098BL-E 1/4"

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.
