Sony ICX098BQ CCD
Posted 06 April 2013 - 12:17 AM
Just stumbled across this the other day and I can't stop thinking about it. Does anyone have some pics taken with this camera? I would like to put together a video rig for outreach(seniors). I plan on imaging SLAP mainly. I also don't have the technical ability to do electronic mods. Budget of about 200$ not including barlows.
my thinkingis as follows:
Plus: air cooled a bonus. USB2.0 good as is not having to do soldering. Also can't find a suitable webcam locally.
cons: For the same price can get a sammy2k, but would still have to make the controller and usb adapter(anyone sell these online already assembled?)
thanks for the suggestions. There is little on the web about this thing. Also, if anyone has pics taken with this chip please share with me!

However, note that ICX098BQ is kind of old. The same type-1/4" (tiny imager format) interline progressive CCD is now being replaced by ICX618. You can find several threads on this subforum and Solar System Imaging subforum, with the imager named <something>618<something>.
As a golden rule, when any CCD based imaging device being used in long expsure (typically 2 seconds, some go as high as 10-20 seconds) need cooling.
For that, active-TEC-cooling is the way to go. Forced air cooling is far less effective, depend on your local ambient temperature, etc.
