PLAYER ONE - URANUS-C
Uranus-C and Mars-C II is not only for planetary imaging, but also very powerful for EAA!
Uranus-C is (IMX585) camera developed by Player One Astronomy, which adopts the newest Sony IMX585 1/1.2” format color sensor. The 2.9um pixel size accommodates a well depth of 38.8Ke with a total of 8.3MP (the resolution is 3856*2180), and the diagonal is 12.85mm.
STARVIS 2 Technology
Uranus-C (IMX585) and Mars-C II (IMX662) based on Sony newest STARVIS 2 technology, it is back-illuminated pixel technology used in CMOS image sensors.
Uranus-C (IMX585) has 1/1.2″ format, this size is quite big for imaging.
Uranus-C (IMX585) has 38.8Ke full well, it’s almost 3 times than IMX485 (13Ke).
Biggest supprise of Uranus-C (IMX585) camera is, its dark frame is totally “dark”, whatever we strength the curve, there is no AMP glow at all!

Non-Amp-Glow can give us very clean background, much easier to get high quaility images.
Uranus-C camera also very good for lunar and planetary imaging, its 1/1.2″ big sensor can make mosaic moon more efficient.
The naming of Player One Astronomy cameras is unique. Planetary camera line, naming depend on the size of planets, Mars(1/3″), Neptune(1/2″), Uranus(1/1.2″), Saturn(1″), Jupiter(4/3″).
The planetary cameras developed by Player One Astronomy uses a scientific and technological regular hexagon to construct the main body line, supplemented by round chamfers to achieve both rigidity and flexibility. The positive orange, which is imply solar, is matched with the low-key and steady black, and the super-fine frosting process on the entire surface makes the camera look luxurious and cool, highlighting the style of high-end players, can’t take my eyes off �
When taking deepsky objects, using sensor tilt plate can get a much smaller field curvature of the telescope.
The built-in high-density sponge shading pad can block the light from the side slits without any side leakage.
256M DDR3 Cache
Player One Astronomy cameras are the first one who adpots the DDR3 cache in all planetary cameras in the world! It helps stabilize and secure data transmission, it effectively avoids frame dropping and greatly reduces readnoise.
With the DDR3 cache, the camera does not have high demands on computing needs any longer, it will still has excellent performance even if it is connected to a USB 2.0 port.
Passive Cooling System
Player One add a new feature called Passive Cooling System to conduct the heat from the sensor out.
The planetary cameras from Player One Astronomy have DPS (Dead Pixel Suppression) technology. DPS:n analyserar de mörka ramarna för att ta reda på de fasta onormala pixlarna och spela in kartan i kamerans minne. Vid bildbehandling, varje exponeringsram, kommer positionen för döda pixlar att ges ett medianvärde enligt de aktiva pixlarna runt den onormala pixeln.
Player One cameras produced by the number one player ensures the safety of your camera and other equipment through overvoltage and overcurrent protection mechanisms.
When the camera is connected to the USB3.0 interface and full-resolution preview is used, it can reach 47 FPS in RAW8 mode (10bit ADC). When recording images, since the actual writing speed will be affected by the writing speed of the hard disk itself, when the hard disk writing speed is slow, the recording may not reach the theoretical speed. 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.
Use the ST4 guide cable to connect the camera and the AUTO GUIDE port of the equatorial mount to do guiding.
