Outline
The Watec WAT-902H is a new highly sensitive, high resolution, black and white video camera. Visibility is assured in conditions with a minimum illumination of 0.0003 Lux. (F1.4). Approximately 2.5 times more sensitive in the visible ray wavelength.

WAT-902H is an excellent video camera for deep sky and planetary astronomy. It will perform very well when viewing deep sky objects, planets and their satellites. Its high resolution and 1/2 inch CCD sensor favours deep sky objects still allowing for high quality views of the planets and the moon in particular.

Its reduced size is also beneficial as it will not affect the telescope´s balance. DIP switches at the back of the camera provide control over the camera´s features.

The camera comes equipped with a standard female CS mount for mounting various lenses and adapters. The camera can be attached onto a photo tripod when used with a video or other types of lens.

Please note that to get the best of any camera a dark sky is required. Light sensitive cameras used in urban locations will equally amplify light coming from deep sky objects as well as that coming from street lamps and various other light sources. Light Pollution, UV/IR and other filters can be used to filter undesirable wavelengths and improve image quality.

Accessories
Additional accessories required:
  • A CS to 1¼" adaptor to attach the camera to a telescope 1¼ standard size focuser.
  • A 12V power supply for providing power to the camera.
  • A BNC Phono connector.
  • A BNC to Phono plug cable.
