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.

FW7-STX

The SBIG FW7-STX is a 7-Position, 50mm square filter wheel for STX and Aluma AC series cameras.

50 mm Square Optical Filters

SBIG 50 mm square optical filters are compatible with FW7-STX filter wheels, which work with STX-16803 and Aluma AC4040 cameras.  These filters are built for SBIG to our exacting specifications.  All filters are parfocal, which avoids unnecessary refocusing.
