SBIG STX-16803

Our most popular large format camera.  16 megapixel CCD with 9 micron pixels.  Supports options including FW7-STX 7 position Filter Wheel, StarChaser SC-3 guide camera, and AO-X Adaptive Optics.

The SBIG STX Series represents the ultimate in astronomical imaging systems. The integrated design allows the user to select either Ethernet or high speed USB 2.0 connection to the control computer. The Model STX-16803 uses Kodak's KAF-16803 CCD with 16 million pixels at 9 microns. The sensor measures almost 37mm square. The STX series has superior cooling to -50 degrees C below ambient with air only. Water-cooling is also possible. STX cameras have internal voltage regulation and may therefore be operated directly from any unregulated 12VDC power supply.

For guiding, a KAI-340 guide CCD is available in the optional Remote Guide Head, or the StarChaser SC-3 off-axis CMOS guide camera can be used.  The StarChaser SC-3 is a new self-contained guiding option with built-in AO support.
