OGMA AP24CC Full-Frame Color IMX410 Cooled Digital Still Image Astronomy Camera with Bonus Kit

Recommended Option

You can order the AP24CC camera with either:

  1. Anti-reflective Window Coating: Includes a filter drawer and a 2-inch UV/IR filter.

  2. UV/IR Window Coating: Does not include the filter drawer and the 2-inch UV/IR filter.

We recommend the Anti-reflective Coating option for more flexibility with filters, such as using a dual narrow-band filter in light-polluted areas. This ensures only one filter affects your light path.

The UV/IR Coating option provides more space between the camera and the telescope and avoids potential shading at the corners of a full-frame sensor.

Highlights

This camera is designed to deliver exceptional performance, providing high-resolution images with minimal noise, even under less-than-ideal conditions. The large frame and large pixel size will pair well with telescopes of large focal lengths under average seeing or with telescopes of shorter focal lengths under less-than-average seeing.
