State-of-the-art TS 294CP color astronomical camera

The camera with the powerful Sony IMX294 sensor enables astrophotography at a very high level. This modern sensor can be used for all areas of astrophotography. 4.3 µm pixels make this camera an all-rounder with maximum sensitivity for short exposure times.

Another advantage is the sensational sensitivity to light. The QE of 80% thanks to the BACK ILLUMINATION technology already allows deep astrophotography with short exposure times. This makes the camera very suitable for deep sky photography.

The "single shot" color camera offers more convenience than monochrome cameras. Not everyone wants to use the complex L-RGB process to get beautiful color nebula images or planetary images. Color cameras give you the opportunity to get great pictures without changing the filter. However, in a direct comparison with the DSLR camera, the color camera convinces with a much higher light sensitivity, a softer image and a significantly greater depth. Stars don't burn out that fast.

Back lighting technology:

Sony's back-illuminated CMOS image sensor improves sensitivity and noise reduction, key factors in improving image quality, by changing the basic pixel structure from front to back exposure. The advantages of CMOS image sensors, such as low power consumption and high operating speed, have been retained.

Postexposure improves light capture while increasing the amount of light. This makes significantly shorter exposure times possible and leads to an improved quantum efficiency of 80%.

Sony has developed a unique photodiode structure and on-chip lens optimized for back-illuminated structures, resulting in higher sensitivity and lower non-light random noise by reducing noise, dark current, and defective pixels compared to traditional structure with front lighting.

Optimum support before and after the purchase by Teleskop-Service

Thanks to many years of experience, we can offer you the best possible advice and also an excellent after-sales service. We can perform almost all services in-house. For a professional service, we also have a clean room, where we can carry out repairs, cleaning, etc. excluding dust.

Connection to correctors with M48 thread and 55 mm working distance with filter change

Most refractor field flatteners or coma correctors have a 55mm working distance and an M48x0.75 thread on the camera side. Here is an interesting suggestion for the connection. The camera has a 17.5mm back focus from the internal T2 thread. The adapters are from the camera to the corrector:

1. TSFSLM48T2 - Filter box with T2 connector on the camera side and M48 thread on the telescope side.

2. TSVF220 - 20mm M48 Extension

A total of 55.5mm back focus - 0.5mm well compensates for the filter glass path - precision landing!
