Description

The ST-8XME is based upon Kodak's latest microlens technology that increases the effective QE of the CCD. The KAF-1603ME is used in the ST-8XME cameras. This CCD features a peak QE of nearly 85%, 1530 x 1020 pixels at 9 microns square, and multiple AR coatings on the CCD window for increased light transmission and significantly reduced reflections.

The ST-8XME camera also includes a TC-237H CCD with 657 x 495 pixels at 7.4 microns for self-guiding and a Remote Guiding Head Port. The ST-8XME is well suited to Time Delay Integration (TDI) imaging. The ST-8XME model includes a high quality carrying and storage case made for SBIG by Pelican.
