Ha Full Disk 21st May With The PGR BlackFly (IMX249) Camera
First shots with my new camera here - the Point Grey Research Blackfly IMX249 GigE mono camera with 5.86um pixels. This 1920x1200 pixel camera allows me to capture the full disk in one image - no more making mosaics! using the Coronado DS40 and barlows with a 1200x1200 region of interest applied. The resultant full disk is very even with none of the gradients that a mosaic can produce. I'm really pleased with the levels of detail recorded, and also the lack of noise compared to my trusty DMk31. I just need to explore the settings a little more on it to see what the camera is capable of producing.
