INTRODUCING THE NEW MALLINCAM SSI (Solar System Imager)

The new MallinCam SSI is a dedicated planetary, lunar and solar (with proper solar filter)
imager that runs through USB 2 and a PC computer. Image are displayed live with the same
CRS system (Constant Refreshed System) as the MallinCam Universe. Not only you can view live
solar system object but you can record in AVI, BMP, TIFF and JPEG for unsurpassed image quality.
The heart of the new MallinCam SSI is the 1.49 MegaPixel sCMOS Ceramic scientific class 0 sensor with pixles size of 3.63 microns and total size image of 1.39 MegaPixels.

The external case is made of all metal cast aluminum
for heat transfer for greater efficiency. External color of the
camera has been introduced to reject all solar heat when
camera is exposed to direct sunlight. A 1.25" eyepiece adapter is included
and comes with a 5 meter (16.4 feet ) USB 2 cable. Camera is
powered from the USB source from the PC computer.

The MallinCam SSI use a C mount system to facilitate mounting
with other MallinCam accessories and from third party accessories.
The front has a sealed chamber with a multicoated optical glass
preventing dust entering on the sCMOS and keeping maintenance to a minimum.

The internal rear of the camera has a CNC machined
Cold Finger which offer a passive cooling to the sCMOS sensor
stabilizing the sensor temperature and spreading the heat to the entire
external cabinet and front of 1.25" adapter and through the telescope focuser.
A unique design in the industry only from MallinCam.

The MallinCam SSI incorporate a high QE highly acclaimed sCMOS (Scientific CMOS) class 0 made of ceramic compare to other cameras on the market which are plastic from low cost webcam style design. Available in monochrome (SSIm) or color (SSIc), performance is stunning when use with quality optics. The color version (SSIc) can be switched from color to monochrome at a click of a mouse and yet retain the high performance of the sCMOS in either mode. The monochrome version (SSIm) offer a superior contrast and finer detail only attainable from a monochrome sensor. We are not afraid to show the highly engineered electronics and electromechanical passive cooling.
Does other comanies do the same? We are totally tranparent in our goals and engineering. We like to share with you our pride in performance perfection and unbeatable quality only found in a MallinCam. Camera is built to last for quality performance.
