I have a customer looking for a long-range camera to meet the following specs :
16.7-1000mm lens (60x optical zoom), 1080p resolution w/ starlight/lightfinder/equivalent and PT enclosure with wiper, heater and blower.
I had planned to use the VideoTec Ulisse Maxi with an Axis Q1635 and a Fujinon 16.7-1000mm lens, however I don't have enough space in the housing. Ulisse Maxi has 432mm space available, Axis Q1635 (136mm) + Fujinon lens (377mm) = 513m. Have had zero luck finding a suitable camera less than 136mm, or a suitable lens less than 377mm or a PT housing with wiper larger than 432mm.
Has anyone had any experience with long range cameras? Seems like this is a custom solution - the only thing I could find online was a website selling an analog solution with an Axis IP encoder for $65k USD. Any help would be appreciated.
