MallinCam unveils its newest addition to the SkyRaider Video Camera series. The SkyRaider DS10c ($929.99) is built around hand-selected Sony IMX294 back-illuminated color CMOS industrial sensors with 4.63-micron-square pixels in a 10.7-megapixel array measuring 21.8 mm diagonally. The camera uses 4 gigabits DDR internal memory and can be operated in either 8- or 12-bit mode with several binning options. Its 2.65-inch-diameter cylindrical aluminum housing is designed specifically for use in HyperStar and RASA optical systems, and it connects to most telescopes with an included T-adapter or 2-inch nosepiece. The DS10c connects to your PC via a USB 3.0 interface and can output single FITS, JPEG, BMP, or PNG files, or AVI and SER video formats. The unit can also operate as an autoguider that connects to your mount via an RJ-11 port. A 5-meter (15-foot) USB 3.0 cable, guiding cable, and operating software are also included with purchase.
