F.O.V. The 1/3 SONY ICX054AL does produce a smaller FOV then the Astrovid 2000. However,since both cameras are using the same size monitor the 1000 will give a larger apparent magnification. Making it ideal for moon exploration and plantary observation.
Focal Ratio ICX054AL CCD 9.6um (H) x 7.5um v(V) pixels. Best results for moon f18-25 and f25-40 for planets. ATROVID recommends a TeleVue 3x Barlow on a f10 scope (f30) for planets and a 2x Barlow on a f10 scope (f20) for moon.
Note: ( from ASTROVID 1000 manual) Use of the smaller 1/3 CCD format does not mean that preformance is compromised. The SONY ICX054AL HAD CCD chip remains one of best high res. CCD's on the market. A state of the art interline-transfer chip that outpreforms Sharp and Toshiba auto-gain/auto-shutter cameras.
Also comes with a very solid aluminum carry case, cables, 12volt supply and a few other items. AstroArt Software optional.
This is a great little camera and it works flawlessly. I've had a great deal of fun with it. I do want to upgrade however. Contact me with your questions.
