STF-8300M and STF-8300C

STF-8300 Mono and color
The STF-8300M (monochrome) and STF-8300C (color) cameras are updated versions of the popular ST-8300 models based on Kodak's KAF-8300, 8.3 megapixel, full frame CCD.  This CCD array has 3326 x 2504 pixels at 5.4 microns making it ideal for both short fast optics in high resolution (unbinned) mode, and for longer focal lengths it can be binned binned 2x2 or 3x3.  The CCD has both antiblooming and microlens technology to improve the effective Quantum Efficiency of the sensor.  As a result it can be used in a wide variety of optical configurations.  The camera electronics are USB 2.0 for fast download rates and rapid focus mode.  The small light body accepts both c-mount and standard 35mm Nikon camera lenses.  A built-in mechanical shutter is included for automatic dark frames. In addition to its imaging capabilities, it can also be used as a guider.
