  • This Apogee Alta F8300 Color CCD Camera employs an 8-megapixel Kodak KAF-8300CE front-illuminated Truesense Imaging sensor, ideal for applications requiring a large field of view with a smaller pixel.
  • Ideal for astronomy due to its large field of view and smaller pixel size - 3326 x 2504 pixel array, at 5.4 microns.
  • This Apogee Alta F8300 Color CCD Camera has 1 to 8 MHz 16-bit digitization and 32 MB camera memory.
  • Subarray readout and fast sequencing modes, plus adjustable fan speed for low/zero vibration.
  • Package includes Apogee TE cooled camera head, CCD, USB cable, international power supply and ActiveX driver.

Apogee Alta F Series CCD Cameras


The Alta® F Series represents the next step in the evolution of the Alta line of cameras with faster readout speeds. The Alta line continues to support a wide variety of front-illuminated, back-illuminated and interline transfer CCDs. All Alta systems are backed by a 2 year warranty on the camera and lifetime warranty on the CCD chamber integrity. Current U Series customers can easily upgrade their systems to F Series.

Apogee Alta F8300 Color CCD Camera


The Apogee Alta F8300 represents the next step in the evolution of the Alta line of cameras with faster readout speeds. The Alta F8300 uses a medium format 8-megapixel Truesense Imaging sensor, ideal for applications requiring a large field of view with a smaller pixel. The F8300C uses the color version of the CCD (non-removable uncoated cover glass only).
