CMOS Cameras

CMOS is the alternative to CCD when it comes to astrophotography. OPT provides both kinds of camera, and is happy to provide whichever best suits your needs. CMOS cameras tend to be less expensive than CCD cameras, and have lately experienced a dramatic surge in technological advancement that has put many of the finer models on even footing with their CCD cousins. CMOS cameras are very similar to CCD cameras, but have certain fundamental differences in design architecture that drastically effect them and establish firm and predictable differences between the two kinds of camera. CMOS image sensors can incorporate other circuits on the same chip, eliminating the many separate chips required for a CCD. This also allows additional on-chip features to be added at little extra cost, and again increasing the efficiency of manufacture. Here at OPT, we are ready and willing to help you figure out what kind of camera best suits your needs.
