Watec and itís partners are proud to present the BEST and most powerful video system ever created for astronomy. This StellaCam 3 includes the 120N+ (new watec camera) with an advanced regulated cooling system designed to reduce hot pixels and increases the life longevity of the CCD sensors. It is ideal for the astromony community. The StellaCam3 is a cooled video camera with unlimited exposure time. The StellaCam3 has the ability to view deep sky, planetary, lunar and solar objects in near real time!!
The StellaCam3 produces the highest quality images. The video output can be viewed directly on LCD monitors and large screen televisions. With this new cooling system, you are able to observe faint detail that is commonly lost in noise, distorted by high gain or unatainable with uncooled systems.
The Astrovid StellaCam3 also produces some of the highest quality images attainable. In fact, the cooled StellaCam3 is quite comparable to a conventional cooled CCD, with one important exception; you can now View Live Images directly on LCD monitors and large screen televisions. Stars are nice and round. There are no annoying artifacts present. The dynamic range and signal to noise ratio surpasses all other cameras available. This means you will see more detail in your targets with the Astrovid StellaCam3 than any other video camera on the market.
