Starlight Xpress

The Starlight Xpress Trius SX-25C offers 6,000,000 pixels of resolution. Each pixel is 7.8uM x 7.8 uM in size. It features exceptionally low dark signal so no dark frames are necessary for most deep sky objects. The new 'Trius' version also adds a triple USB hub and Argon filled CCD chamber.

MAJOR FEATURES

  • Very large, high resolution 'SuperHAD' CCD chip, with 6,000,000 x 7.8uM square pixels in a 23.4 x 15.6mm array. Size equivalent to APS film.
  • Single-shot colour, using a Bayer matrix of R, G and B on-chip filters. No filter wheel required.
  • Triple USB hub for accessories, built-in.
  • High performance two stage cooler for better than -35 C chip temperature reduction.
  • Dry Argon chamber fill for improved cooling performance.
  • Exceptionally low dark signal - No dark frames necessary for most deep sky objects.
  • Exceptionally effective anti-blooming with minimal effect on linearity and no lost active area.
  • High sensitivity, equivalent to 60% QE at peak of green filters.
  • NEW! Built-in super high speed USB 2.0 interface (USB 1.1 compatible) for approx. 3.5 second downloads.
  • Built-in autoguider output.
  • Single USB cable control for all features - get rid of that dangerous cable tangle!
  • Only ONE computer needed to control all of the devices and functions.
  • Very low power consumption. Less than 1.5 amps at 12v DC.
  • Compact and lightweight - only 75mm in diameter x 100mm long - less than 500 grams load on the 'scope!
