  NEW  TRIUS series CCD Cameras

Starlight Xpress
has always been renowned for small, compact, innovative designs, along with excellent build quality. The new Trius range of deep-sky, cooled CCD cameras has just taken these values to a whole new level. In addition to the already super low-noise performance of the previous generations of SXV, SXVF, & SXVR cameras, the new Trius range is even better, whilst still offering fast download times of approximately 2 million pixels per second

Starlight Xpress SXVR-H814 CCD Camera  SXVR-H814 and SXVR-H814C CCD Camera
Truly the next revolution in Cooled CCD Cameras from Starlight Xpress.

The SXVR-H814 uses the very latest and certainly the best CCD to be released by Sony since we started designing and producing cameras around Sony CCDs in 1991. It has a remarkable Quantum Efficiency of 77% which was previously unheard of in an interline sensor; but with all of the wonderful benefits of an interline CCD, especially from Sony such as incredibly low thermal noise and very fast electronic shutter (no need for mechanical shutters).

The CCD is available in both single-shot colour and mono, so you can have the ability to capture striking colour images with a single exposure or take full advantage of the versatility of using the monochrome version for scientific applications, such as photometry and narrow band imaging etc.

Starlight Xpress 'Oculus'   'OCULUS' All-Sky Camera

Oculus is the latest introduction to the innovative portfolio of Starlight Xpress products. The Oculus uses a SuperHAD CCD from Sony which has all of the wonderful benefits of an interline Sony CCD, such as incredibly low thermal noise and very fast electronic shutter (no need for mechanical shutters). With exceedingly low noise electronics and a fast f/2 180 degree fisheye lens, capturing the night sky is an absolute dream.

This is the perfect camera for imaging meteor showers, viewing the weather conditions at a remote observatory and imaging the night sky in a spectacular way.
