The Altair GPCAM3 290C uses the highly sensitive IMX290 full HD sensor developed by Sony for industrial applications.
A diagonal size of 6.46mm (Type 1/3″) and 2.13 Megapixel 1920×1080 effective resolution make this camera a good choice for EAA (Video Astronomy) and Deepsky imaging, as well as solar system “lucky” imaging.
- Dual USB3.0 and USB2.0 compatibility. A USB3.0 cable is included.
- The front C/CS-Mount thread makes this camera easy to use with CS and C-Mount lenses (5mm extension required) for meteor capture, microscopy imaging and industrial inspection in low light, or high magnification work.
- A 1.25″ Astronomy compatible nose-piece is included, which has a 1.25″ standard filter thread for astronomy filters or 1.25″ reducing lenses.
