The SBIG STF-1603M is a compact, economical, high QE camera with a scientific grade full frame CCD. The small size and light-weight of these cameras make them very easy to handle and set up. These cameras have a photometric quality, even-illumination shutter for automatic dark frames. The low noise and extraordinary QE of these sensors make these cameras some of the most sensitive CCD cameras available at any price. The KAF-1603ME CCD sensor, with a peak QE of nearly 80%, and 9 micron pixels makes this camera perfect for photometric, industrial, and life sciences applications.
For astronomical applications where greater cooling and self-guiding filter wheels are desired, we also offer the KAF-1603ME imaging CCD in the Model STT-1603M.
