The Player One Neptune series is designed specifically for high-end planetary imaging applications. The Neptune-C features Sony's IMX178 1/1.8" colour CMOS sensor with a diagonal of 9mm. The IMX178's 2.4μm pixel size, full well depth of 15Ke- and 6.4MP resolution make it perfect for high resolution planetary and solar photography with a range of telescopes. 

 

 

The Neptune-C does not have much IR sensitivity, so the camera features a UV/IR cut window over the sensor. With 256MB of DDR3 memory and USB3.0, the camera delivers a fast frame rate of up to 60FPS without frame dropping in RAW8 mode (with 10-bit ADC).

 

 

 

Note: When recording images, since the actual writing speed will be affected by the writing speed of the hard disk itself, therefore it is recommended that you use a high-quality solid state drive to record data to give full play to the performance of the camera.

 

 

Player One's planetary and solar cameras feature DPS (Dead Pixel Suppression) technology. This is a sort of automatic dark frame subtraction of hot/stuck pixels which is performed in-camera.

The Neptune series features a sensor tilt plate for removing Newton rings. The built-in high density foam blocks light from the side slits without any leakage.
