“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.
