This camera is in excellent condition. This is the more sensitive EX version and comes with the camera controls in a remote box. It also comes equipped with the optional PC Control so that the camera can be fully remotely controlled from any PC. This is a great feature for anyone with an observatory or for anyone who simply likes to keep warm while imaging.
The camera comes with a 1/2" Sony EX View monochrome CCD chip with a 600 line resolution sensor. It has a 10 bit analog to digital converter for much higher quality video and better gamma correction. In planetary mode at 1/60 sec. the camera is sensitive to 0.005 lux and provides detailed and very satisfying planetary, lunar and solar images. In deep sky or accumulation mode the camera is sensitive to an incredible 0.00005 lux (that’s no misprint) and provides AMAZING real time images of deep sky objects such as galaxies, globular clusters and nebulae.Check out the AVA website for my buddy Tristan's detailed observing report of what can be seen using the Stellacam EX. The versatility of the camera is further demonstrated by equipping it with a standard c-mount lens. Using such a setup I have captured ISS and shuttle flybys in real time as well as spectacular wide angle displays of the Aurora Borealis and the Leonids. A few images are posted below.
The camera has on-screen menus and many other features (zoom, titling, etc.).
