MALLINCAM Jr PRO
Due to popular demand
for a low cost, entry-level astronomical video observational system, MALLINCAM announces the return of the original MallinCam
PRO – now with additional features. This new camera is called the MallinCam Jr PRO.
It comes complete with 25’ Video/Power Cable, 120 VAC to 12 VDC regulated power
supply, the highly acclaimed 1.25" Deluxe adapter found on all other MallinCams, an RCA to BNC adapter, and a Pixel Wireless
Exposure controller, complete with batteries!
The Jr PRO can be purchased with either the standard 1/2 inch size Sony ceramic CCD sensor
(Cer-Dip) or the optional EXview HAD sensor for an additional $100.00. Either type of CCD sensor, the Standard
sensor or the EXview HAD sensor, is available in color or B&W - something others do not offer. The Jr PRO comes with
½” CCD sensors; not low grade plastic 1/3" type found on others security type cameras.
The MallinCam Jr PRO is capable of exposures from 1/12,000th second through 99 Hours and all exposures longer than 2 seconds
must be selected using the included wireless exposure controller (WEC). The Jr PRO also has an RS 232 auxiliary port
for computer control of the camera’s MENU. A computer cable is available as an option for those who wish to control
the MallinCam Jr PRO’s menu through computer. In addition a wired menu keypad is also available for those who
do not want to use a PC in the field, but want to adjust the menu without having to use the 5 small buttons on the camera
for this purpose. A version of the MallinCam Control Software tailored for the Jr PRO is available at no charge.
The MallinCam Jr PRO use standard, off the shelves components and is uncooled. For
those desiring to create images with the Jr PRO, all that is needed is the subtraction of a dark frame to obtain excellent
results. For live viewing, no computer is required. Simply connect the Jr PRO’s composite or s-video output to
a monitor, DVR, or to a computer using a capture device and you get a live image in color or black and white, depending on
the sensor purchased.
For the observer who wishs to explore the night sky with Astronomical Video Technology
developed by MallinCam, the MallinCam Jr PRO is the answer for anyone on a budget.
If you ever wanted to increase the aperture of your telescope to be
able to see deeper and fainter targets, you can now do so with your current telescope electronically. Using a EXview
HAD black and white or color sensor in a MallinCam Jr PRO will make your scope function like a much larger visual scope.
Anyone with eye problems can now enjoy visual observation again with
the new MallinCam Jr PRO. Family and friends will be able to share precious moment of the telescope while observing the monitor
of all deep sky objects. The New MallinCam Jr PRO can do it all - Deep Sky, Lunar, and Planets and solar with proper white
light or H Alpha solar filter.
