Interesting CMOS sensors
« on: March 01, 2012, 07:16:49 pm »
CMOS have bad press in astrophotography, but some new ones are quite interesting...

Like Ruby line from e2v - the EV76C660 has > 80% QE max and around 3e read noise ;) QE chart. If the rolling shutter won't make problems in planetary imaging - it could be a next big thing after ICX618... but what about also cooled for DS imaging? Small objects, like planetary nebulae on high resolutions. Sun in H-alpha could maybe use optional lin-log response. I should have a camera with current Sapphire sensor for tests soon. Maybe the Ruby sensor could be Attiked if it would work nicely?

Also H-alpha solar images want a big diagonal of CMV4000 - which should be available from Ximea (USB3), Basler (GigE) at around 1500-1800 EUR... but still they aren't ready (Basler changed from Q1 do Q2 2012).


And maybe for fun this monster - maybe it could be usable with lenses? As a asteroid / comet catcher? 2.63° x 1.87° 0.95 "/pixel for 14" Hyperstar (that can do "up to 42mm possible with some vignetting")  ::)

It was a while, and now CMOSIS offers two even bigger sensors - CMV12000 (APS-like diagonal) and CMV20000 with 35 mm diagonal.

On http://nevael.ru/ CMV20000 is around 4K EUR and CMV12000 around 2600 EUR.
