Basler scout Cameras Capture High Resolution Planetary Images
The aim of astrophotography is to capture high resolution planetary and lunar images. Astrophotopraphers often work with the so-called “lucky imaging“ strategy (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_imaging ) .
Lucky imaging is one of several possible astrophotography techniques that use subsecond image capture rates to reduce the blurring effect caused by atmospheric turbulences. It combines multiple short exposure images into a single image, yielding a much higher resolution than would be possible with
a single image using a longer exposure time. A 100% pure JAVA application named “FireCapture” has been developed for capturing planetary and lunar images. The application uses the Basler pylon SDK to connect to a Basler scout scA640-120 camera via the Java Native Interface (JNI).
