The New MallinCam SkyRaider DS26cTEC is here at last. A Video/Imager dual-function camera with sensitivity and a high QE never seen before in this astronomy industry. Equipped with the new Sony IMX571BQR-J (Color), Back-Illuminated, Class 1, high performance CMOS sensor, its sensitivity has now been made to match and surpass even CCD sensors on the market. Having 3.76 X 3.76 microns pixels just like professional cameras, this new deep sky camera is a must-have system for those who prefer shorter (a few seconds) exposures to get their favorite deep sky objects live on the screen as video, or to take still pictures as well. This SkyRaider DS26cTEC camera from MallinCam also has a superb operating feature which is that there is NO Amplifier glow observed from the on-chip amplifier!

NOTE: This product, the Model DS26cTEC SkyRaider is a COLOR Camera. A mono version is not yet available.

The cooling system is the same as that in other SkyRaider (DS10cTEC, DS16cTEC) cooled cameras. MallinCam has successfully designed a cooling chamber called refrigeration cooling - which subjects the CMOS sensor to cooling inside a triple-sealed vacuum sensor chamber controlled with a heating element mounted around the internal optical window. This heater functions to control and avoid dew formation on the optical window and surroundings. A vacuum-sealed chamber is used to eliminate the use of desiccant material and keep the sensor chamber in a pure dew-free environment, permanently!

The Sony IMX571BQR-J CMOS sensor is an scientific grade product, made to work at 100% duty cycle making this CMOS sensor last for a very long time. It will easily run all night during imaging applications. The sensor chip has a diagonal size of 28.3 mm (Type 1.8) CMOS designation. They are active-pixel-type solid-state CMOS image sensors with a square pixel array and 26.11 M effective pixels. This is a large chip! This chip features a rolling shutter with variable charge-integration time. NOTE: A Class 1 - Scientific Grade CMOS sensor is standard with this camera from MallinCam.

The MallinCam DS26cTEC is in limited-production, as it is custom-built one at a time in small batches by expert technicians. Each camera is subjected to a standard 24-hour burn-in as a quality control procedure, prior to being ready for shipment to insure proper specified operation. It is this kind of detail that sets MallinCam apart from everyone else. MallinCam provides you with the highest quality guaranteed products.
