The Imaging Source, a manufacturer of imaging hardware and software for industry, medicine and astronomy, has launched a series of affordable, low noise astronomy cameras to capture high quality images of the night sky.

Measuring 50 x 56mm and weighing 260g, the cameras are supplied with a USB or FireWire connector (model specific).

Monochrome and colour models are available with and without an IR cut filter in three resolutions: 640 x 480, 1024 x 768, and 1280 x 960. The astronomy cameras deploy low noise CCD chips from Sony and have an exposure time of up to 60 minutes and a maximum frame rate of up to 60fps.

The cameras include the camera control and acquisition software 'IC Capture.AS', which allows image sequences and singular images to be written to disk.
