SBIG ST-8300 Color Camera

Using the KAF-8300 Sensor, this color CCD achieves remarkable astro-imaging quality that must be experienced to be believed! Well above what is average for a Color CCD, SBIG's ST-8300 boasts a wide array of splendid features to make it worth your time. This high performance camera boasts 5.4 Micron square pixel size in a 3326 x 2504 array, providing great resolution relatively easily. Furthermore the sensor itself is a 22.5mm diagonal in size, giving it a large surface area to capture large quantities of data.

The SBIG ST-8300 also boasts good quality cooling, using a Thermoelectric Cooling System to provide a cooling delta of 35 degrees below the ambient temperature. The camera requires a 12V/3 Amp DC Power supply to operate when using this cooling system. The camera also takes advantage of its compact, single board design with an internal shutter that allows for exposure times of a tenth of a second in length. This makes capturing dark frames simple and easy! See further features and details below:

ST-8300 Specifications and Features

  • Uses Kodak’s microlensed, blue enhanced KAF-8300 CCD with 3326 x 2504 pixels, 5.4 micron square pixels.
  • 16-bit A/D converter with correlated double sampling running at 1.7 megahertz
  • Temperature regulated Thermo-Electric (TE) cooling with 35C delta for reduction in CCD dark current.
  • Single board, small, compact design with internal shutter allowing exposures down to 0.1 seconds that makes taking dark frames a trivial task.
