Player One launching Saturn SQR camera series today!!
"SQR" is "square" for short.

Saturn-M SQR and Saturn-C SQR is the most powerful planetary camera in our history! Based on IMX533 BSI sensor, high image quality, high resolution and square format, non-amp-glow feature, the camera will be great for lunar, solar mosaic and DSO lucky imaging.

Saturn SQR camera has 3 advantages.

Extend Full well Capacity : Based on our technology, we improved the full well of Saturn SQR camera to 73Ke , it's almost 1.5 times than IMX533 Basic (50ke).

High Frame rate : Saturn SQR camera can run 43FPS under RAW8 mode, that's much faster than existing models on market.

Dual Sampling Mode : Saturn SQR series has dual sampling mode.

1.Normal mode has faster FPS, Normal mode is more suitable for planetary imaging.

2.LRN (low readout noise) mode has lower readout noise and higher dynamic range. LRN mode is more suitable for DSO lucky imaging.

That's so awesome, I am going to get one of these mono sensors one day! Hoping for Jupiter SQR mono some day.

Hi Sarciness,

We are happy to see your reply :) Since Saturn series is released, we are looking for new sensor to make Jupiter series. In the begining of this year, we considering about IMX492 and IMX294 sensor, but looks it has amp-glow problem. If Saturn series is so perfect, Jupiter series should beyond it, so we are going to find some better sensors to make it!

Year after the original post, and see an air-cooled version of this which is great for planetary. I'm looking at the Aires now and it looks like it has the same stats but is actively cooled I don't think I can pass this up. Just got a Lunt 60 (f7 & f17.5) and have a C9.25 (f2.2 & f7). The upgrade in speed and full well sounds incredible. I like my ASI1600 but it's a little slow for Planetary (which I do use it for)
I need a camera that can do everything basically... think I may pull the trigger! (though I'm going to look at  the larger sensor first and pine over it)
