Starlight Xpress Trius SX26C CCD Camera

Starlight Xpress Trius SX-26C is a large format 10 megapixel camera with a 23.4 x 15.6mm sensor. The sensor features a 3900x2016 array of 6.05 micron pixels.

Major features:

  • Very large, high resolution 'SuperHAD' CCD chip, with 10,202,400 x 6.05uM square pixels in a 23.4 x 15.6mm array
  • 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 55% QE at peak of green filters
  • Built-in super high speed USB 2.0 interface for approx. 10 second downloads
  • Built-in autoguider output
  • 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.

  • Computer Interface: Built-in USB 2.0 compatible interface and triple output USB hub
  • Image download time: Typically 10 seconds at full resolution
  • Power requirements: 115VAC / 240VAC @ 12VA, or 12VDC @ 1.5 A maximum
  • Cooling system: Regulated set-point cooling supply with two stage thermoelectric cooler to give a minimum CCD temperature of approximately -35C below ambient
  • Dry Argon filled CCD chamber
  • Size: 75 x 70mm black anodised aluminium barrel with 42mm 'T2' thread at the CCD window end & input/output plugs at rear. CCD alignment screws are provided for setting the chip parallel to the focal plane
  • Weight: approx. 400 grams / 14 ounces
