Camera used for the StarTracker

This is the camera we are going to use for the Star Tracker placed at the BEXUS gondola.

The camera is The Imaging Source Monochrome Industrial Camera DMK 41BU02.H. It comes with a USB 2.0 interface and is the perfect solution for our experiment. Normally, this camera is used for industrial automation, quality assurance, security, surveillance and medical applications. Shortly, this camera will be the key for spatial orientation as well.

There are some multi-language open libraries for software development available that we will soon publish here.


The camera datasheet is displayed below.
