Canon develop ultra-large-scale, ultra-high-sensitivity CMOS sensor, which makes possible wide field-of-view video recording of meteors with equivalent apparent magnitude of 10.
Canon Inc have announced an ultra-large-scale, ultra-high-sensitivity CMOS sensor which has been developed to enable the video recording across a wide 3.3° x 3.3° field of view with an equivalent apparent magnitude of 10.
The sensor has a chip size measuring 202 x 205 mm, and is the world's largest* surface area for a CMOS sensor. It has been installed in the Schmidt telescope at the University of Tokyo's Kiso Observatory in Japan.
