USB3.0 SONY imx294 10mp astronomical telescope cool astronomy camera with TE cooling temperature control

Model: ATR3-10300KPA


Camera Description


Standard M42-Mount camera with SONY Exmor CMOS sensors imx294, sensor size: 4/3"

Sensor Resolution: 10MP

Two-stage TE-cooling (Thermo Electric Cool) temperature controllable with electric fan;

Sensor cooling can be 42 degree below ambient temperature

(Support set lowest working temperature -30 degree)

Working temperature can be regulated to specified temperature in 5 minutes

Bit depth: 8/14bits

High sensitivity: 3352mv with 1/30s (HCG)    419mv with 1/30s(LCG)

Smart structure to assure the heat radiation efficiency and avoid the moisture problem

IR-CUT filter (AR coated windows for Opional)

Up to 1 hour long time exposure;

USB3.0 5Gbit/second interface ensuring high speed data transmission

Ultra-FineTM color engine with perfect color reproduction capability

With advanced video and image processing application RisingView

Support both video and trigger modes

Providing Windows/Linux/Mac OS multiple platforms SDK

Native C/C++, C#/VB.NET, DirectShow, Twain control API



ATR3 CMOS camera adopts SONY Exmor CMOS sensor as the image-picking device and USB3.0 is used as the transfer interface to increase the frame rate.

With the two-stage peltier cooling sensor chip to -42 degree below ambient temperature.  

This will greatly increase the signal to noise ratio and decrease the image noise. Smart structure is designed to assure the heat radiation efficiency and avoid the moisture problem.

Electric fan is used to increase the heat radiation speed.

USB3.0 is used as the data transfer interface to increase the frame rate.

ATR3 CMOS comes with advanced video & image processing application RisingSky; Providing Windows/Linux/OSX multiple platform SDK; Native C/C++, C#/VB.NET,

DirectShow, Twain Control API;

The ATR3 CMOScan be widely used in low light environment image capture and analysis,  astronomy deep sky application.

 Amp-glow Reduction Technology

What is amp-glow reduction technology?

Most sensor have amp-glow problem when you do long-time exposure , such as longer than 1s
“amp glow reduction technology” is a hardware modification to reduce the amp-glow of sensor.

The ATR3-10300KPA Camera adopts Amp-glow reduction technology

Camera Size 

The ATR3CMOS body, made from tough, alloy with CNC technique, ensures a heavy duty, workhorse solution. The camera is designed with a high quality IR-CUT or AR to block the IR light or protect the camera sensor. The fan‘s vibration is minimized to the low level to eliminate the vibration caused imaging blur. This design ensures a rugged, robust solution with an increased lifespan when compared to the other industrial camera solutions.
