Product Description

The PLC-M 1.3Mp Monochrome CMOS Camera is a multi-purpose camera capable of lunar/solar imaging to autoguiding in very low light. It includes the Aptina MT09M001 (1280x1024 pixel array) with very high quantum efficiency from the visible to near infared(IR).

Due to its excellent sensitivity, of the visible to near infared(IR), this camera is ideally suited for solar/lunar imaging with good noise control. It provides 2x2 hardware binning (640 x 480) for a 10.4 micron square pixel to detect low light stars for autoguiding.

  • C male adapter - Flowing 31.75mm
  • USB2 cable for PC connection
  • Software package incorporating PLxCapture application and format conversion utility
  • ROI equipment (windowing)

There are few, if any, CCD imaging devices with this amount of cooling support in this market 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.
