SC432M Monochrome Solar Imaging Camera

SC432M monochrome planetary camera is designed with global shutter technology; with pixels reaching 9um; which makes its full well reach 100Ke; these features make the SC432M camera unique.

Global Shutter

As we know, slight atmospheric jitter and equipment shaking bring great difficulties to imaging. The global shutter can achieve fast imaging; greatly improving shooting efficiency by capturing the ever-changing moments of the sun.

Being a global shutter camera, SC432M telescope camera also features a 120 high frame rate per second; it’s not only good for solar and lunar imaging; also suitable for you to photograph ISS and other fast-moving objects.


Large Pixels

This camera pixel is 9μm x 9μm, which means it can works at longer focal ratio. With its high sensitivity, images with finer colors and subtler details are possible; you can have full trust in its solar imaging performance. Large shooting area can cover 80% or even the entire sun; this 9μm large pixels provide clear imaging details; greatly reducing the number of post-processed images.


1.1-inch Large Frame

SC432M astrophotography camera has a 1.1" large format; a larger field of view; and a larger area than currently recognized planetary cameras; if it is used to take pictures of the sun and moon; it is naturally a better choice; it can meet the different observation needs of yours. When under conditions with flares and other activities, a camera with a small target area can only capture part of the sun; while a large format camera can capture a complete image of the sun.


Silver Color

Silver appearance can reflect part of the sunlight and reduce the heat absorption of the camera when shooting the sun. The body absorbs less heat and ensures no noise when producing images.

HCG Mode

HCG mode will automatic open when Gain is 140, readout noise will drop to2.4e. And dynamic range will rise to 12 stops. Sensors with HCG enable the camera to image in darker environments without worrying about noise that affects image quality. Turn on HCG mode when the gain value is 140; the readout noise can be greatly reduced and high dynamic range is retained; avoid celestial tailing and increase celestial details.

DDR3 256M Buffer

With the DDR3 cache, the camera does not have high demands on computing needs any longer, it will have excellent performance. USB 3.0 & 256MB DDR3 Memory; the planetary camera is no longer as computationally demanding and still offers excellent performance even when connected to a USB 2.0 port. 


Bulit-in Cooling Fan

Connected to an external 5V1A power supply; type-C power supply; which can lower the camera temperature by 5-10 degrees to ensure better imaging effects. The heat dissipation is about 20 degrees under high temperature; extending the service life; long exposure reduces noise and ensures the quality of the picture. The camera uses cooling fan to avoid it overheating, the camera working temperature will be cool down lower 5-10 degree.


Cooling Device

Both the heat sink and thermally conductive silicone added to the back of the chip to ensure the heat dissipation effect, since they have good thermal conductivity and can effectively conduct the heat to the surrounding environment.

Full Well Depth

The full well depth is the maximum amount of detection signal that each pixel can accommodate. SC432M has a full well depth of 100ke; the larger full well depth provides the camera with stronger sensitivity; when we want to photograph the Sun surface and prominences, a very good quality image can be obtained.

Temperature Sensor

Add a temperature sensor and the software will display the real-time temperature of the camera.
