Using the Samsung SDC-435 (SCB-2000) video camera for astronomy
by Steve Wainwright
The Samsung SDC-435 (SCB-2000) is a frame accumulating camera that is
about 35% the price of a Mintron video camera.
It should be noted that the Samsung SCB-2000 is the same
camera, re-named by Samsung following company reorganisation.
am experimenting with the SDC-435 to determine whether it is a credible
alternative to the Mintron.
