Quote:If that's an ExView HAD II type-1/2" camera, I'd say it's a good deal. (NTSC: ICX672AKA, PAL: ICX673AKA).AFAIK, SONY's Effio DSP line does not have capability to go slower than 512x field-integration time. Thus 1024x has to come from a different manufacturer.Old CN thread: http://www.cloudynights.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=VAA&Number=4921817BTW, 960H CCD is making the pixel size smaller thus the S/N will not be as great as the commonly seen SONY enh-reso video CCDs.Clear Skies!ccs_hello

Quote:Interesting. Good find Lee It would be nice to find an improvement on the existing SDC-435/SCB-2000
and at those cheap prices it would be fantastic to help get people into Video ($70 Aussie with Free shipping from China).

Quote: ... but I love my Lodestar when it can churn out stuff like this in 1second exposure etc in M13 + Catseye PN [1s]; M92 [1s]; M92 [30s] and M57 [20s]
Quote:Another comment:...... The culprit is the NTSC CVBS output which choke the bandwidth.....
Quote:I wonder if you use Gstar software whether you could extend the exposure time to 34 seconds? With that chip and a good reducer, you should be able to see almost everything.
Quote:Stupid question, are you guys just using a lodestar autoguider for those pictures?Chris
Quote:Yea.. It's basically a starlight 7c in auto guider form. I believe it's same chip as mallincam but not hampered with NTSC.
Quote:I also wonder about the IR filter. Hopefully, it will be almost the same as taking out the IR filter on the Samsung cameras. If you attempt to take out the filter, please let us know how you did it. From the outside, almost all of these cameras look the same. Also, hopefully, it will come with an adapter to fit a 1.25 inch diagonal.

Quote:See, we are using these cameras in a particular way. The fact that we are using these camera with really fast focal ratio is not, in fact, what they are designed for.
