Starlight Xpress Oculus Overview

Ideal for capturing 360° images or videos of weather, meteors, satellites, and other events, the Starlight Xpress Oculus 2.5mm f/1.2 150° All-Sky CCD Camera uses a fast fish-eye lens to image the night sky from horizon to horizon in full 360 degrees. Its 1.4MP Sony "SuperHAD" CCD camera and sensor are optimized for low-light/nighttime use, with a very low dark signal and very little readout noise, so it can be used to image faint stars with a very short exposure time.

The camera is designed to be connected to a monitor computer running Windows and gets its power from the computer's USB port. A separate independent heater, designed to keep dew from condensing on the dome and interfering with the shot, can be powered by any 2.1mm DC power adapter putting out between 6 and 15V and delivering at least 1A. Choosing different outputs will change the amount of heat, allowing you to control how hot it gets and minimize dark signal interference.

The Oculus is designed to be permanently or semi-permanently mounted outdoors and comes with a 3" clear polycarbonate dome and aluminum housing that is weather resistant against rain and snow. For the best images, the unit should be placed as high has possible to avoid ground-based light flares from houses or passing cars. The included bracket has pre-drilled holes for strapping it to poles and masts, plus a standard 1/4"-20 tripod socket to put it on most photo/video/field tripods if you want to bring it with you off the grid and capture panoramic star-scapes.
