Sentech MCA5MUSB3 - 5MP Color CCD - USB3.0 Description

5-Megapixel, USB3.0, Color Camera

Sentech's USB3.0 cameras are ideal choices for planetary, lunar, and solar imaging. The STC-MCA5MUSB3 is an ultra-compact, high-frame-rate, color CMOS camera. At full 5-megapixel resolution it can capture 14 frames per second (fps). The scalable resolution offers frame rates up to 123 fps (at 640x480).

Most USB video cameras used for solar system imaging capture data at 8-bit depth. While this is fine for most planetary imaging, a higher bit-depth can be preferable for solar imaging where the extra dynamic range allows for capturing both surface detail and prominences in the same exposure. The Sentech cameras can capture 10-bit data at 1/2 the full frame rate, and 12-bit data at 1/4 the full frame rate.
