Traditional CMOS sensors produce a weak infrared light source during operation quite often seen in the corner of uncalibrated images as the tell tale signs of ‘amp glow’. As the SV605MC uses better zero amp glow design, The glow was not visible during the 300 second exposure, make sure the totally high quality“dark”image.
Cooling System TEC
Thanks to the two-stage TEC cooling, the SV605MC can lower the CMOS sensor temperature to 30 degrees Celsius below ambient temperature, which can greatly reduce dark current generation and sensor noise even during longer exposure times.
Using the HCG digital noise reduction technology, the readout noise can be greatly reduced and high dynamic range is retained.
256M DDR3 Cache
The SV605MC has a built-in 256MB DDRIII image buffer. The benefit of the image buffer is that the memory will cache the image and transfer it to the computer when the USB interface is not busy or being interrupted, so that the frame won’t be lost or corrupted. This buffer also allows a slower computer with USB 3.0 to capture every frame without loss even if the USB bus is occasionally busy with other peripherals. This buffer also makes it possible to run another camera using the same computer without USB transfer problems from the SV605MC
For Windows system, SV605MC support N.I.N.A., TheSkyX, APT, Sharpcap and other softwares running through ASCOM platform by using ASCOM driver.SV605MC camera works with Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Chrome OS and Raspberry Pi systems by running AstroDMx Capture.
