See what pictures can be taken with CCD cameras and even small astronomical telescopes!
At 60 frames per second, the monochrome camera DMK 21AF04.AS for astronomical observations with a telescope is the fastest in its category. Ideally suited for black and white astrophotography enabling the registration of fast sequences of photos. Using the IC Capture.AS software included with the camera, you can capture image sequences without loss of quality and without compression, as AVI files.
The CCD DMK 21AF04.AS camera for astronomical applications uses the ICX098BL CCD matrix from Sony. With a 1/4 "format, the matrix has a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Noise, even with long exposures, is minimal. Thanks to unsurpassed quality, the ICX098BL matrix is ••often used in industrial image processing applications.
The CCD DMK 21AF04.AS camera does not use compression, it does not cut the infrared spectrum, it does not use a color or electronic filter. Thanks to this camera very well and realistically reproduces what can be seen in the night sky.
The Astronomical DMK 21AF04.AS camera generates a fast stream of uncompressed monochrome images. To be able to send it to a computer that supports the camera, a quick connector is necessary. That's why the camera is equipped with a FireWire cable.
This camera is supplied with the WD WD DCAM TIS camera driver and IC Capture.AS control software. You can find more about the software HERE
