The MallinCam SkyRaider DS26c/mTEC is Here In Limited Production.
This is the big one. With a16 bits A/D converter, the New MallinCam SkyRaider DS26 is a video imager with high QE never seen before in its class. Equipped with the new Sony Industrial 26.1 megapixels, Back Illuminated IMX571BQR-J, APS-C size, 28.3 mm (1.8 type) diagonal, 80% QE high performance CMOS sensor, sensitivity has now been made possible to surpass CCD sensors on the market today. Having 3.76 X3.76 microns pixels with no AMP GLOW, this new deep sky camera is a must of own for those who likes few seconds exposure to get their favourite deep sky targets live on the screen or to take pictures as well and, or, video of their observations with the widest field of view possible.
The cooling system is the same as our other SkyRaider (DS10cTEC, DS16cTEC, DS432cTEC) cooled camera. MallinCam has successfully design a cooling chamber called refrigeration cooling - which subjects the CMOS sensor to cooling inside a triple sealed vacuumed sensor chamber controlled with a heating element mounted around the internal optical window to control and avoid dew formation on the optical window and surroundings. A vacuumed sealed chamber is used to eliminate the use of desiccant material and keep dew free environment permanently.
The Sony IMX571BQR-J CMOS sensor is industrial grade and made to work at 100% duty cycle making this CMOS sensor last a long time and run all night of imaging performance. It is available in color or monochrome
for the purist who demand mono performance and increase sensitivity. The IMX571BQR-J has a diagonal of 28.3 mm (Type 1.8) CMOS active pixel type solid-state image sensor with a square pixel array and 26.11 M effective pixels. This chip features a rolling shutter with variable charge-integration time. Class 1 CMOS sensor is standard with this camera.
Each camera is subjected to a 24-hour burn-in prior to being ready for shipment to insuring proper operation. It is these details that set MallinCam apart from everyone else.
