Product Details

  • 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 megapixel ‘Ultrastar PRO’ and it comes with the choice of either a 2.5mm FL f1.2 ‘Fish-Eye’ lens to achieve 150 degrees coverage, or a 1.55mm f2 180 degree ‘Fish-Eye’ lens giving you horizon to horizon coverage. This product is for the 150-degree lens.

    Built-In Dew Detection

    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
