LENSES FOR C/CS MOUNT CAMERAS

The lenses below are C-Mount lenses and will fit any CCTV, C or CS mount camera, like the PD Video Cameras, Mintrons, Stellacam, Mallincam, etc.


The renowned Computar 4mm f1.2 lens. The "best lens" for video meteor astronomy, in tests by the International Meteor Organistion (IMO). Their full paper "CCTV lenses for video meteor astronomy" is available here
The good quality used lenses that I used to sell (at 39) are now difficult to obtain. So now I sell only the brand new Computar lens, complete with lens caps. Made in Bangladesh. With PD Video cameras: the 4mm focal length gives a diagonal field of view of about 91 degrees. Maximum aperture of f1.2 gives a limiting magnitude of about 11 mag. Length: 37mm, diameter 34mm.
Aperture variable from F1.2 down to zero (no stop markings).
