About this product

Model:  Trius-SX-694-PRO-Colour
Part Number:  100-0056

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 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.

 

MAJOR FEATURES

  • Lower read-noise than CMOS cameras
  • A Bayer matrix single-shot colour version of the Trius PRO-694 mono camera.
  • Medium format, high resolution 'Exview' CCD chip with 6,050,000 x 4.54uM square pixels in a 15.98 mm diagonal array.
  • Exceptionally low dark signal - No dark frames necessary for most deep sky objects.
  • Excellent QE of 77% peak in yellow light, 65% at Hydrogen alpha (656 nm).
  • Three port powered USB hub built-in. Can drive a Lodestar or Superstar guider + SX filter wheel.
  • High performance two stage cooling for better than -40C delta T
  • Dry Argon CCD chamber fill for improved cooling performance.
  • Exceptionally effective anti-blooming with minimal effect on linearity and no lost active area.
  • High speed USB 2.0 interface for approx.  3.5 second downloads.
  • Built-in triple powered USB hub for guider and filter wheel control.
  • Single USB cable control for all features - get rid of that dangerous cable tangle!
  • Very low power consumption. Less than 1.5 amps at 12v DC.
  • Compact and lightweight - only 75mm in diameter x 70mm long - less than 500 grams load on the telescope.
  • Collimatable front cover.
