Megapixel Cooled Color CCD Camera with USB2.0 Interface


This 6.0 Megapixel Cooled Color CCD camera is a no compromise design with state of the art capability, suitable for high end users doing low light astronomy or microscope applications. It has a very large imager format to make framing your subject easy, and large pixel size for high sensitivity, and high imager resolution of 3032x2016 to give a great image even when you need to use only part of the image frame. It has a peltier thermo electric cooled CCD image sensor to lower thermal noise, allowing long exposure times of up to one hour with minimal thermal noise. It can also take images in bright conditions as well. It uses a large 1.8” Sony CCD (ICX413AQ) interline frame scan CCD and a 12 bit analog front end and A/D converter. For low light applications, this CCD camera is substantially better than CMOS cameras, due to the low thermal and readout noise, minimal fixed pattern noise, and uniform analog front end amplifier and circuitry used for all pixels. This camera is a high end CCD that offers high light sensitivity (using large 7.8 micron pixels with high quantum efficiency) and high resolution 3032x2016 image format. The USB2.0 allows rapid image readout of still frames, multiple frame sequences, or videos. Software drivers are provided compatible with all Windows computers (XP/NT//Vista/Windows7, 32 and 64 bit). Two software programs are provided, allowing simple image capture, image processing, editing, measuring and labeling for both microscope or astronomy applications.
