Starlight Xpress Trius Pro 814 Cooled Monochrome CCD Camera

The TRIUS Pro Cameras innovate like no other, boasting impressive cooling systems and advanced electrical designs to compete with the best cameras in its class! 

Versatile Camera Body

All Trius Cameras have incorporated a USB hub into the main camera, which offers 3 x USB 2.0 ports at the rear of the camera. Each port is capable of delivering up to 200mA and is able to drive a Lodestar, or UltraStar for guiding and another two USB ports for our USB filter wheels, etc. This integration greatly reduces the number of cable trails back to the computer and gives less potential cable tangling around the mount during your imaging session.

Low Temp Cooling Systems

The TRIUS Pro Camera Series reach anywhere between -40 and -50 degrees of cooling, ensuring that your noise levels stay extremely low. Combined with this, each camera is designed with Argon-filled sensor chambers to further optimize this process.
