Hi, I am offering this LNIB condition in original box. It has been used less than 5 times. Only reason I am selling is that I have two other cameras Malincam Universe, and Skynxx. If paying by Paypal please add three percent.Thanks for browsing.  Original cost $850.00. thanks.Mahesh Yadav


DFK 51AU02.AS
Color USB camera with IR cut filter 
1/1.8" CCD, progressive scan 
Resolution 1600 x 1200 
Max. 15 fps 
Max exposure time 60 min 
C/CS Mount 
Software included 
Resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels 
The telescope camera DFK 41AU02.AS exceeds with its high resolution (1280 x 960 pixels). Additionally, the DFK 51AU02.AS can output these high resolutions images at a speed of up to 15 frames per second. Using the shipped software - IC Capture.AS - you can capture lossless and uncompressed images sequences as AVI files. 

Fast display of color images 
Using the original images from the CCD (RAW format) for visualization purposes does not make much sense. Only after color interpolation, is it possible to view the images in common formats. The bandwidth required when transferring interpolated images is considerably broader than when transferring the original RAW formatted images. The CCD camera DFK 51AU02.AS allows color interpolation to be switched off, thus achieving 15 color frames per second. In this case, color interpolation is performed by IC Capture.AS on the host computer. Alternatively, should color interpolation not be desirable at all, AVI files can be written in RAW format. 

Sony color CCD 
The astro CCD camera DFK 51AF02.AS deploys the color CCD ICX274AQ, manufactured by Sony. This chip has a 1/2" format and 1600 x 1200 pixel resolution. Even at long exposure times, its noise is minimal. Thanks to the high quality of the ICX274AQ, it is often used in scientific image processing applications. 

IR cut filter 
Unlike the human eye, CCDs are sensitive to near infrared light (wavelengths over 700nm). It is often not desirable to capture light that is in the near infrared range. Indeed, such light often disturbs an otherwise perfect shot. Therefore, the CCD camera DFK 51AF02.AS ships with an IR cut filter. 


Shipped software for Windows
This camera ships with the camera driver IC WDM DCAM TIS and the control software IC Capture.AS.More pictures available on request. Cameera is LNIB.
