i-Nova PLA-MX CCD Camera Monochrome

M42 Optic SARL

i-Nova PLA-MX CCD Camera

Multi Purpose Camera

From Lunar, Solar & Deepsky Imaging to Autoguiding.

* New Sony Exview ICX618ALA CCD sensor (640 x 480 pixel array) with a very high quantum 
efficiency from the visible spectrum to the near infrared (IR) region. 
* Ideally suited for planetary high resolution imaging, thanks to an excellent sensitivity from the visible spectrum to the near infrared (IR) region. 
* Provides 2x2 hardware binning (640 x 480) to get a 11.2µm square pixel to be able to detect a faint star for autoguiding. 
* C-mount thread (this standard allows users to take different kinds of adapters like 1.25” eyepiece holder, camera objective lens with step down ring).

Under our own trademark I-Nova, we have designed a comprehensive range of cameras renowned for being innovative and high quality to do:

- Planetary imaging,

- Lunar / Solar imaging,

- DeepSky imaging,

- Visual enhancement*,

- Autoguiding.

We design our own cameras and we also develop our own software “PLxCapture” to fully exploit the potential of our cameras. This enables us to guarantee a fast and efficient support for hardware and software.

We are continually on the lookout for Innovation. In our software, we have developed a feature called “Visual enhancement” This feature is unique to i-Nova cameras. As it is always disappointing to look through a telescope without being able to see an image similar to those seen in astronomy magazines, we had the idea to develop a new feature “Visual enhancement” that performs image processing in real time and lets us show nice images of faint objects, with no need to be a specialist.
