Used Orion Starshoot Pro V2.0 Deep-Sky CCD Camera
The Orion StarShoot Pro V2.0 Deep Space Color CCD imaging Camera provides professional astrophotography performance at a picture-perfect affordable price. The StarShoot Pro V2.0 boasts refined features and imaging functionality usually found in CCD cameras offered at much higher prices.
The enhanced Orion StarShoot Pro V2.0 Deep Space Color CCD camera brings cooled, multi-megapixel color imaging into the realm of never-before-seen affordability. Its Sony 6.1-megapixel color Charge Coupled Device (CCD) chip boasts a 3032 x 2016 pixel array in a 25.10mm x 17.64mm format. That gives the Pro 6.5 times the image area and over four times the pixels as similarly priced astrophotography CCD cameras. In fact, it uses the same chip found in cameras costing thousands more! The Pro’s square 7.8 micron pixel size provides an excellent balance between high resolution and sensitivity. With some cameras in cooler weather conditions, condensation can form on the surface of the optical window, due to the temperature of the optical window being affected by the cooled CCD. Our enhanced design prevents this by virtue of increased distance between the CCD chip and the optical window. You get detail-rich shots with enough resolution to make large format color prints!
The Orion StarShoot Pro V2.0 is thermoelectrically cooled to dramatically reduce thermal noise. A small fan on the back enhances cooling efficiency even more. Now, thermoelectric cooling can be manually shut off via software control, to eliminate dew in extreme outdoor conditions. The new software control also enables fan speed regulation. The Pro’s 16-bit dynamic range gives it a leg-up on most Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras, which offer 10- to 14-bit A/D conversion. Made in Canada, the StarShoot Pro V2.0 also features 2x2 binning and high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity for speedy astroimage downloading. Power is supplied via a single 12-volt DC cigarette lighter plug on a 10 foot cable. All this comes neatly packed in a custom hard carrying case.
