SBIG ST-8300 COOLED COLOR TELESCOPE CAMERA
The SBIG ST-8300C colour camera represents quality that is accessible to amateur astronomers. Built around the massive KAF-8300 sensor, mosaics are not a necessity. Coupled with a one-shot colour sensor, this camera is great for getting large, colour images with minimal effort.
The KAF-8300 features antiblooming to eliminate the blooming artifacts other sensors face when imaging bright stars. It also features microlens technology to improve quantum efficiency. High quality electronics also keep read noise under 10 electrons RMS, dark current to be a small fraction of an electron (as low as 0.01 electrons) and linearity under 1%.
With a built-in voltage regulator this camera can be used directly with a battery in the field, or with an AC power source using the included universal power supply. The SBIG ST-8300 is also well suited for remote setups, being interfaced by a USB2.0 cable.
The camera uses a specially designed mechanical shutter that ensures even illumination across the sensor during short exposures. This makes taking flats simple since the shutter won't introduce unwanted artifacts. This shutter also simplifies taking darks.
Using an internal full frame image buffer, and a high speed low noise readout, this camera is capable of transmitting a full frame image in less than a second. This makes framing and focusing much more efficient as well as eliminating wasteful pauses as images are downloaded.
