Oculus PRO All-Sky Camera 180°
The Oculus PRO All-Sky Camera is designed to provide high Quality sky images for weather and meteor observations. The core of this camera is based on the super-sensitive 1.4 megapixel ‘Ultrastar PRO’, it comes with the 1.55mm f2 180 degree ‘Fish-Eye’ lens giving you horizon to horizon coverage. The new PRO version has built in Dew Detection which only turns the internal dew heater on when necessary so the camera itself is not heated when the humidity is low, increasing your signal to noise.
