A hand remote controller board assembled is shown here . The hand remote uses a special processor and only high quality surface mount parts from top end semiconductor manufacturers.
All capacitors are ceramic X7R and all parts are tightest tolerance and extended temperature range for highest reliability .
Up to date, there was not a single failure of any AVS circuit in the field .

The MK III camera head is also using proprietary Astro-Video Systems circuitry for no amp glow, highest gain and lowest noise .
This leads to unmatched sensitivity by any other camera on the market today, even at more than double the price .
Image shows MK III production version (hand assembled first article) .
