Maybe not the right Forum to ask about cooled astro cameras (since this is usually a cooled CCD question), but I not have one of the new Primaluce cooled/modified Canon 700 da cameras that I want to use with BYE.
Canon 700D, modified
Double Peltier cooler cools the camera sensor down to 30 degrees centigrade below ambient temperature (86 degrees F below ambient).
So if ambient is 25 C, camera sensor can cool down to -5 C.
So if ambient is 20 C, camera sensor can cool down to -10 C.
Is the following logic correct?
if you set the Set Point temperature to 0 degrees centigrade, and the ambient temperature is 25 degrees centigrade, then the camera sensor will be cooled to 0 degrees centigrade, which is a sensor temperature drop of 25 degrees centigrade (ambient - drop of 25 = 25 - 25 = 0).
set Set Point to -5 degrees C, then sensor cooled to -5 (ambient - drop of 30 = 25 -30 = -5. Which is the limit of cooling, 30 degrees below ambient.
Anybody know the best sensor temperature for the Canon 700D to eliminate as much dark noise (thermal noise) as possible?
I am guessing a bit below 0 degrees C, based on one of the SBIG camera manuals (but of course SBIG are CCD and DSLR's are CMOS sensors).
