Product description

Ceres-C is a guiding camera developed by Player One Astronomy, which adopts the Sony IMX224/225 1/3” format sensor. The 3.75um pixel size accommodates a well depth of 19.4ke with a total of 1.2MP (the resolution is 1304*976), and the diagonal is 6 mm.

Dwarf planet series integrated USB3.0 data port (500Mb/s), which can provide over 10 times speed than USB2.0 device (60Mb/s). Whatever you wants to do guiding or imaging, this camera series can handle it very well.

Dwarf planet camera diameter is 1.25″, it can slide in 1.25″ holder of guiding scope, makes the whole setup shorter.

DPS technology
The guiding cameras from Player One Astronomy have DPS (Dead Pixel Suppression) technology. The DPS is anaylse many dark frames to find out thoes fixed abnormal pixel and record the map in camera memory. In imaging, each exposure frames, thoes position of dead pixels will be given a median value according to the active pixels around that abnormal pixel.

Overvoltage and overcurrent protection mechanism
Player One cameras produced by the number one player ensures the safety of your camera and other equipment through overvoltage and overcurrent protection mechanisms.

Data Port
When the camera is connected to the USB3.0 interface and full-resolution preview is used, it can reach 154 FPS in RAW8 mode (10bit ADC). When recording images, since the actual writing speed will be affected by the writing speed of the hard disk itself, when the hard disk writing speed is slow, the recording may not reach the theoretical speed. It is recommended that you use a high-quality solid state drive to record data to give full play to the performance of the camera.

Use the ST4 guide cable to connect the camera and the AUTO GUIDE port of the equatorial mount to do guiding.

Readout Noise
Regarding readout noise, we solemnly promise that all values are obtained from actual tests. And for users, you could use Sharpcap 4 for testing. SC4 has a function called Sensor Analysis, provide a very simple way to test readout noise.

After many rigorous readout noise tests, the Ceres-C camera can reach a low readout noise of 0.75e at a gain of 350.
