Starlight Xpress

The new Trius versions of the H35 and H36 Starlight Xpress cameras incorporate a triple output powered USB hub for guider and filter wheel control.

Features include regulated set-point temperature control with superior fan assisted cooling and ultra-low read noise in a compact, light-weight body.

The Trius SX35 and SX36 cameras are the largest in the SX line of Kodak CCD based imagers.

To reduce the negative effects of the greater Kodak dark signal a two stage Peltier cooler delivers an extra 10 degree reduction in the CCD temperature and a new high-speed USB2 interface circuit greatly reduce the download time.

The fast download minimises the visibility of bias frame artefacts, such as hot columns and the top to bottom gradient that is commonly seen on such chips.

Trius SX35 Mono

Features

  • Large, high resolution Kodak CCD chip, with 10,838,016 x 9uM square pixels in a 36.3 x 24.2mm array. 
  • High sensitivity, approx. 52% QE at peak (green light), 31% at H alpha.
  • Low dark signal - Dark frames not necessary for most of the brighter deep sky objects
  • Anti-blooming with minimal effect on linearity and no lost active area
  • Built-in super high speed USB 2.0 interface for approx. 7 second downloads
  • Built-in autoguider interface and output - compatible with the optional dedicated external guide camera
  • Built-in dual serial ports for accessory control - directly drive filter wheels, GOTO 'scopes etc.
  • 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 1.0 amps at 12v DC - 12VA at 110v or 240v AC
  • Compact and lightweight - only 118mm in diameter x 102mm long - less than 1100 grams load on the telescope.
  • 72 x 1mm input thread, compatible with Takahashi FSQ106 etc.
