COMPLETED - Withdrawn- Starlight SXVR25C Camera

Recommended Posts

New camera purchase necessitate I sell some equipment to balance my account. For sale is a great colour camera with a good reputation for imaging. The specs  below show the quality of this camera, it is the model before the Trius, so doesn’t have the integrated USB hub. Otherwise its the same performance with regulated cooling, a search on this forum will show the capability of this camera. It’s size is also ideal for Hyperstar, RASA scopes.



CCD type: Sony ICX453AQ SuperHAD CCD with ultra low dark current, Bayer RGB matrix and vertical anti-blooming.

CCD Full resolution Pixel data: Pixel size: 7.8uM x 7.8uM, Image format: 3024 x 2016 pixels

CCD Image area: 23.4mm (Horizontal) x 15.6mm (Vertical).

CCD quality: Grade 1 or better - No bad columns, no dead pixels, no more than 50 'hot' pixels (saturated in <10 seconds).
