New, updated camera from Starlight Xpress.
The TRIUS range of cameras was introduced in 2014. These were the first cameras on the market to incorporate a powered USB 2.0 hub in the rear of the camera to enable the user to connect their USB filter wheel and guide camera directly to the camera rather than multiple cables back to the computer - simplicity and convenience.
The new Blue Edition TRIUS PRO series follows on from that success. We have redesigned the electronics to give even lower read-noise figures and faster downloads. With the Sony CCD cameras, we are now getting read-noise figures that are better than CMOS cameras (when used at unity gain), along with 16bit data and significantly better dark-noise figure thanks to the impressive cooling. Dark frames really are a thing of the past, making calibration frames optional rather than compulsory, giving you more time to capture data and process your images.
The Starlight Xpress Trius SX-814C offers 9.19 megapixels of resolution. Each pixel is 3.69 x 3.69 uM in size. This very high resolution makes the 814C particularly well suited to the super-fast short focus 'scopes and 'Hyperstar' systems that are now widely in use. The new 'Trius' version also adds a triple USB hub and Argon filled CCD chamber.
