The Player One Apollo series is the world's first camera line designed specifically with solar imaging in mind. The Apollo-M Mini features Sony's IMX429 2/3" Pregius 3rd generation monochrome CMOS sensor with a diagonal of 11mm and global shutter.

 

 

The IMX429's 4.5μm pixel size, full well depth of 24.8Ke- and 2.8MP resolution make it perfect for solar photography at medium focal lengths. With 256MB of DDR3 memory and USB3.0, the camera delivers a fast frame rate of up to 84FPS 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 Apollo 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.
