Does this product lend itself to being controlled by either of these software products, such that exposures can be programmed, data extracted and analyzed, and then the camera reset to take yet more images in an automatic fashion ?

If not, is there a more expensive camera and software combination that does do this.

Are the pinout of the control lines to the camera available, or is it strictly controlled by the firewire, and their are no direct electrical connections for firing the camera ?

Do you know of software that measures distances between points on images ?

Do you know of software that can sense an arc on a image, possibly two arcs, and automatically list the radius of the arc associated with the image ?

thanks so much for your help !

Hello DBKooper,

Please excuse the long delay of the answer, I am back from holidays now. Well, all the software you mention is supported. Matlab uses the generic DirectShow interfaces, for LabVIEW a special extension is available, that provides easy access to the camera.

The cameras are strictly controlled by FireWire. There are no extra connections in the astronomy cameras. The DBK 41BF02 provides an external trigger input and GP I/O. Please refer to http://www.theimagingsource.com/en/products/

Not really, but I would have a look on following products:
