Imaging Source FireWire CCD Monochrome Camera, 1280x960 pixel, Up to 15 images/s, DMK41AF02.AS

Resolution of 1280 x 960 Pixels

With a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels, the Imaging Source CCD camera DMK 41AF02.AS is ideally suited for rich captures, full of intricate details. In spite of the high resolution, this CCD camera can capture images with up to 15 frames per second. Using the shipped software - IC Capture.AS - you can capture lossless and uncompressed images sequences as AVI files.

Monochrome Sony?CCD

At the heart of the high resolution CCD camera DMK 41AF02.AS is the ICX205AL sensor, manufactured by Sony? The chip has a 1/2" format and offers a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels. Even at long exposure times, its noise is minimal. Thanks to the high quality of the CCD chip, it is often deployed in industrial image processing applications.

No Compression, No Filters

The image data produced by the CCD camera DMK 41AF02.AS is not compressed. Furthermore, the camera does not have any optical or electronic filters. Thus, the camera produces very true-to-life captures of the night sky.

Fast Data Transfer via FireWire

The astro CCD camera DMK 41AF02.AS outputs a fast stream of uncompressed monochrome images. In order to transfer these to the host PC, a very fast bus is required. Hence, the camera is fitted with a FireWire connector (cable sold separately).

Included Device Driver for FireWire CCD Cameras

The driver IC WDM DCAM TIS embeds all FireWire CCD cameras, manufactured by The Imaging Source, into Windows?2000 and Windows?XP. By deploying this driver, all CCD cameras are compatible to DirectX? Consequently, all The Imaging Source CCD cameras can be used with all astrophotography software that is compatible to DirectX?

Included Camera Control Software

IC Capture.AS is authored by The Imaging Source and has been specifically designed for use with CCD cameras. Using IC Capture.AS, you can do the following: Set all camera parameters... See the live image data stream from the camera... Retrieve singular images from the camera and save them as BMP or JPG files... Capture image sequences and save the single images as enumerated BMP or JPG files... Capture image sequences and save them as lossless, uncompressed AVI files. These files can be post-processed in other astronomy applications, such as RegiStax.

AVI File Generation

With IC Capture.AS you can save the images outputted from the camera as an AVI file. There are two approaches to achieve this: If you would like to save a compressed AVI file, simply select the appropriate codec in IC Capture.AS (DivX, for example). If you prefer uncompressed AVIs, simply select the shipped codec (uncompressed Y800, uncompressed RGB24, uncompressed RGB32, uncompressed UYVY).

Program Compatibility

RegiStax (Windows?: RegiStax can read the uncompressed AVI files that are created by IC Capture.AS Astro IIDC (Mac OS): Using Astro IIDC you can control all The Imaging Source FireWire CCD cameras on Mac OS.
