Oculus PRO All-Sky camera SXCCD


New Oculus PRO!
  • more sensitive,
  • lower read noise,
  • quicker download,
  • built-in dew detection,
The Oculus PRO All-Sky camera is designed to provide high-quality sky images for weather and meteor observations.  The core of this camera is based on the super-sensitive 1.4 megapixels ‘Ultrastar PRO’.
The new PRO version has built-in Dew Detection which only turns the internal dew heater on when necessary so the camera itself is not heated when the humidity is low, increasing your signal to noise. The Air-Assist fan, in conjunction with the internal dew heaters, ensures the dome remains clear.
It employs a 2.5mm FL f1.2 ‘Fish-Eye’ lens to achieve 150 degrees coverage, the 150º version, and 1.55mm f2 180 degree ‘Fish-Eye’ lens with an extra giving horizon to horizon coverage, the 180º version.
