Lumenera SKYnyx 2-0 Color Planetary CCD Camera

Lumenera SKYnyx 2-0 Color CCD Camera

The SKYnyx2-0 is a USB 2.0 CCD camera specifically designed for the astrophotography market. Its superior technology and design are based on Lumenera's Lu075 camera, named a Hot Product in 2006 by Sky and Telescope Magazine.

The SKYnyx2-0 surpasses its predecessor with reduced noise levels and power consumption, and features a 640 x 480 pixel format, ROI, and 60 fps (higher with binning). Capture clear, crisp, planetary, lunar and solar images with the SKYnyx2-0.

Control your SKYnyx camera and capture images through our 3rd party software partners. Lumenera is integrated with the most popular commercial, shareware and freeware vendors including: AMCap, AstroArt, K3CCD Tools, LUCAM Recorder, MaxIm DL, StreamPix and Windows Movie Maker. Lumenera's SKYnyx astrophotography cameras also support a DirectShow interface, allowing camera control by any DirectShow compliant application.

About the Sony ICX424AL Sensor

The ICX424AL is a diagonal 6mm (Type 1/3) interline CCD solid-state image sensor with a square pixel array suitable for EIA black-and-white cameras. Progressive scan allows all pixel's signals to be output independently within approximately 1/60 second.

This chip features an electronic shutter with variable charge-storage time which makes it possible to realize full-frame still images without a mechanical shutter. High sensitivity and low dark current are achieved through the adoption of the HAD (Hole- Accumulation Diode) sensors. This chip is suitable for applications such as FA and surveillance cameras.
