Details

The new 'Trius' version adds a triple USB hub and argon fill to the H16 design.

Features

  • Large, high resolution Kodak CCD chip, with 4,194,304 x 7.4uM square pixels in a 15.15 x 15.15mm array.
  • Low dark signal - Dark frames not necessary for most of the brighter deep sky objects.
  • Anti-blooming with minimal effect on linearity and no lost active area.
  • Built-in super high speed USB 2.0 interface for approx. 2.5 second downloads.
  • High sensitivity, 55% QE at peak (green light).
  • Built-in autoguider interface and output - compatible with the optional dedicated external guide camera.
  • Single USB cable control for all features - get rid of that dangerous cable tangle!
  • Only ONE computer needed to control all of the devices and functions.
  • Very low power consumption. Less than 1.0 amps at 12v DC - 12VA at 110v or 240v AC.
  • Compact and lightweight - only 75mm in diameter x 100mm long - less than 500 grams load on the telescope!
    • Specifications

      • CCD type: Kodak KAI4022M interline CCD with low dark current and vertical anti-blooming.
      • CCD quality: Grade 2 or better - No dead columns, no dead pixels.

      • CCD Image area: 15.15mm (Horizontal) x 15.15mm (Vertical).
      • Spectral Response: QE max at 540nM (~55%), 30% at 400nM and 660nM.
      • Readout Noise: Less than 10 electrons RMS - typically only 7 electrons.
      • Full-well capacity: Greater than 40,000 e- (unbinned)
      • Anti-blooming: Overload margin greater than 100x.
      • Dark current: Dark frame saturation time greater than 10 hours. Less than 0.05 electrons/second @ + 10C ambient.
      • Data format: 16 bits.
      • System gain: 0.6 electrons per ADU
      • Computer Interface: Built-in USB 2.0 compatible interface with 3 port USB 2 hub for peripheral devices.
