FAQ: Which meter
is right for me?
The Hubble non-contact colorimeter (also sold as the Sencore OTC-1000) is a
surprisingly affordable high-end color analyzer for professionals, prosumers, and
The Hubble is an all metal machined tube approximately 8-inches long and
3-inches in diameter with a high-quality lens on one end and a USB connection on
the other. Inside the sealed tube are filters that transform the light entering
through the lens into a spectral profile that closely conforms to the CIE
Standard Observer (see picture below).
The filtered light falls onto photo-sensitive diodes.
Electronics within the unit interpret the electrical output of these diodes to
calculate the color of the image being measured. This information is then passed
through the USB cable to the PC, where ChromaPure displays the data in standard xyY format.
Advantages of the Hubble
The design Hubble offers several advantages over the more common and less expensive
The Hubble offers world-class low-light performance, excellent speed, and
near-reference color accuracy all at a price that is thousands of dollars less
expensive than rival designs.
Can my Hubble / OCT1000 be recalibrated?
Yes. For the same modest fee, your Hubble or
Sencore OCT1000 can (and should) be periodically recalibrated to ensure it retains its initial accuracy. This service eliminates the
problems associated with exposure to the elements over time. We recommend
doing this yearly. See the BUY NOW button above to order. You pay for shipping to us and
for US customers we pay for shipping back to you. (International customers pay
shipping in both directions)
The service includes a certificate of calibration that itemizes all the
corrections that were applied to the meter.

Calibrating Front Projectors
For best accuracy, we recommend calibrating front projectors by
taking readings directly off the screen. The Hubble comes with a built-in tripod
