Product Features

  • Any Area ROI Support;The SV305 astronomy camera has ROI function; A smaller region of interest (ROI) is read out from the sensor; leaving the image scale of the object being imaged unchanged; Allow arbitrary resolutions to be set
  • Long exposure can reach 30 minutes;high-speed;medium-speed;low-speed three output frame speeds are optional;matching different computer hardware to achieve a more suitable reception speed of the hardware. Meet the basic needs of astronomy enthusiasts for planetary photography
  • 128MB DDR Buffer;The benefit of the image buffer is that the memory will cache the image and transfer it to the computer when the USB interface is not busy or being interrupted;and the frame will not be lost or corrupted
  • BSI CMOS Sensor; This telescope camera uses an extremely sensitive back-illuminated CMOS sensor; IMX290 sensor has very high QE and very low (0.7e-) read noise; which improved sensitivity in the visible-light and near infrared light regions for industrial applications
