Oculus All-Sky Camera 180°
The Oculus all-sky camera is designed to provide high quality sky images for weather and meteor observations. The camera core is based on the 1.4 megapixel ‘SuperStar’ and it employs a 1.55mm FL f2 ‘Fish-Eye’ lens to achieve 180 degrees coverage. A 2.5mm f1.2 150 degree ‘Fish-Eye’ lens is also available as an optional extra giving a higher resolution coverage of a smaller FOV.
