iNova announces a new series of modular CCD cameras to enable virtually any type of astronomical imaging. The Smart Imaging System (starting at $629 for the SIS224C) is a compact camera body that features an internal CPU with an 8-core ARM processor and 2 gigabytes of RAM. Its Linux Ubuntu operating system permits planetary or deep-sky imaging without an additional computer at the telescope. The camera is available with a variety of low-noise Sony IMX CMOS sensors, and it can be upgraded with a host of additional options including removable SSD disks, Micro SDHC cards, and even a mini-wireless keyboard. The SIS camera also incorporates a built-in web server with wireless access and many other connections, such as Ethernet, Micro USB, and a two-port USB 2.0 hub. See website for additional details.
