The new SVBONY SV605CC Camera is a 1-inch color deep space camera with 3.76um pixel size, high resolution and 80%+quantum efficiency.
The SV605CC utilizes the SONY IMS533 CMOS sensor which incorporates a 14 bit A/D converter. The 14-bit digital output makes it possible to readout the signals of 9.07M effective pixels at a high-speed of 20 FPS. Read out noise is as low as 1.0e, suitable for high definition, low noise deep space object imaging. The 1-inch square sensor can avoid the dark edge caused by uneven light sensitivity of a rectangle sensor.
The 14-bit ADC gives a high dynamic range of 13 stops and the 50ke- full well capacity helps to reduce the issues such as saturated stars. Using HCG digital noise reduction technology, readout noise can be greatly reduced and high dynamic range is retained. The Sony IMX533 sensor uses a zero amp glow design, no matter how long exposure time or high gain, so that the SV605CC features no amp glow providing a high quality dark image.
The SV605CC has a built-in 256MB DDRIII image buffer that allows memory to cache the image and transfer it to a computer so that the frame won’t be lost or corrupted. This buffer also allows a slower computer with USB 3.0 to capture every frame without loss even if the USB bus is occasionally busy with other peripherals. This buffer also makes it possible to run another camera using the same computer without USB transfer problems from the SV605CC.
The SVBONY SV605CC Camera utilizes a two-stage TEC cooling which can lower the CMOS sensor temperature to 30 degrees Celsius below ambient temperature to reduce dark current generation and sensor noise even during longer exposure times.
The SV605CC works with Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Chrome OS and Raspberry Pi systems by running AstroDMx Capture. It also supports Sharpcap, N.I.N.A, TheSkyX and other software through ASCOM platform by using an ASCOM driver.
