The SBIG STF-1603W 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.
The improved “W” version supports an external filter wheel and includes a user-rechargeable desiccant plug.
Due to the size of the sensor, either 36 mm or 1.25″ screw-in filters can be used in the filter wheel. Please note that filter inserts are required to adapt 1.25″ filters to the wheel.
