The LU075M is a high resolution USB 2.0 monochrome webcam ideal for planetary, solar, and lunar imaging. The Lumenera LU075M is the same camera as the Lumenera SKYnyx 2-0, just different exterior housing: the chip is the same. The imaging performance of this camera is supreme. Use it with a color filter wheel to achieve the very best in planetary imaging resolution.
I'm selling it because I moved up to a larger chip size (the 2-1). I purchased the LU075M brand new from Adirondack less than a year ago. It includes the 1.25" nosepiece and installation software, plus I'm throwing in a 14' USB cable. The backside is missing a small amount of the black paint and has a diagonal scratch where something rubbed up against it during a roadtrip, but otherwise it is in excellent condition.
Below are images I took with this camera.
- The two solar images were captured over the past month (the sun colors are generated in PhotoShop).
- The Saturn image is a LRGB blend: the combination of luminance data from the Lumenera LU075M and color data from a ToUcam II.
IMO, the best software to use with this camera is LuCam Recorder for image capture, and Registax for alignment/stacking. The camera is also compatible with the latest version of K3CCD Tools.
If paying via PayPal, I will split the fee. I pay shipping (UPS).
FYI: the power adapter in one of the photos came with the camera, but is only for situations where the camera is not getting enough power from the USB connection. I have never used the power cord.
