German-made Imaging Source Camera

This might be the smallest and 1st German-made electronics device in my life. I have various kitchen items made in Germany though.

I understood they were Germany-based company. But I thought of being built in US if I buy here, at least hopefully was not from Asia. So this indication made me quite happy. And that was what originally expected.


Anyway, surprisingly and positively tiny. And looks well finished. I like this industrial USB connection. A cable is an extra cost. But I agree this is just paid for the reliability. Basically no other choice anyway.

Packaging and all are very nice. Now I feel really good value for waiting several weeks. Happy shopping!! Thanks to Imaging Source.

There are 3 threaded holes – 1 x 1/4″-20 and 2 x M6 at the bottom. So probably I can use it by various ways.

First, I need to do the compatibility test with some astro control software since no developer clearly told OK.

I added one missing filter into a last spot. Now All Stars of IDAS planetary filters!


All IDAS planetary filter lineup


From #1, Type 4 L – B – G – R – UV372 – BE410 – VW1


I think I have fully completed the planetary filter/camera kit. Now last issue is my lack of skill and experience. I will try to build them up little by little.
