“Not all single shot colour CCD cameras were created equal”

November 17, 2013 – Opticstar’s new DS-616C XL CCD camera is every backyard astronomers best friend. The designers used the best hardware they could find, resulting in a camera quieter than a mouse in operation, with superior performance. The new DS-616C XL CCD camera also has a larger heat sink and Peltier thermocouple to draw the heat created during operation away from a Sony 1.8″ format CCD sensor, which has around 13 times the sensor area of the typical 1/2″ sensor found in many similar CCD cameras on the market. The best part is your new DS-616C XL CCD camera is ready to use out of the box, just add a telescope and your ready to join the human journey to the beginning of space and time. Backyard astronomers drop by Opticstarnorthamerica.com or a local telescope shop today to have a look at your new best friend.

Orion Parsec 8300C Astronomical Imaging Camera

8.3 million pixels of resolution produces Astro-images that will make your DSLR camera want to hide

Astronomy Products

Give the Orion Parsec 8300C, a try, and see if you still look at your DSLR camera

Astronomy Products – The Orion Parsec 8300C is the latest CCD time-machine-to-the-stars capable of taking one-shot, full-frame, 8.3-megapixel color views during your “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time” in perfect resolution. The Orion Parsec 8300C Astronomical Imaging Camera is designed and engineered around Kodak’s 8.3-megapixel KAF-8300 sensor and is one of the most advanced CCD time-machines-to-the-stars you can purchase to “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time.

Amazing color images of the universe

The Orion Parsec 8300C Astronomical Imaging Camera’s color Kodak CCD chip is built around the 5.4 micron x 5.4-micron pixel size for superior resolution and uses Kodak’s microlens technology for maximum sensitivity. Regulated dual-stage thermoelectric cooling and the adjustable fan included with the Orion Parsec 8300C Astronomical Imaging Camera reduces the thermal noise you’ll experience while the internal full-frame memory buffer allows you to reliably and efficiently download your images for later use.

Top quality at a reasonable price

You get all of this Astro imaging power at a relatively low price, considering the quality of the views this outstanding CCD camera produces, and the Parsec 8300C Astronomical Imaging Camera is compatible with Windows XP and later operating systems. You just plug the Parsec 8300C Astronomical Imaging Camera into the USB 2.0 port on your computer with the included cable and power your time-machine-to-the-stars using the 12-volt DC power cable included that plugs into a car accessory jack, or other compatible power sources.
