Astronomy Cameras -- Now with USB 2.0 Connector

Blogged by Jonathan Maron on November 9, 2007 and tagged with Press.

We are delighted to announce that we are now shipping a new line of astronomy cameras with a USB 2.0 connector.

The new USB astronomy cameras are technically identical to their FireWire counterparts, with the exception of their interface to the outside world.

As all PCs ship with a USB interface nowadays, deploying USB cameras is more straight forward than FireWire cameras. This is especially the case for laptops: Their USB interface can power the cameras and thus an additional power supply is no longer necessary.

The USB astronomy cameras ship with:

  1. Telescope adapter
  2. IC Capture.AS (camera control software)
  3. 1.5m USB cable
