    Apogee Aspen CG230 Grade 1 Back Illuminated Monochrome Camera

    This high quality CCD Astronomical Camera is the newest in design innovation from Apogee Imaging Systems! The cooling system is new and improved; working better while at the same time, taking up notably less space than prior designs- leaving more space for the sensor and other internal components of the Camera. Further upgrades range from an improvement upon stray light baffling, the addition of a Network interface with built in web servers, and support of dual CCD's of up to 16Mhz. All in all, this is a stellar example of a Monochrome CCD camera- ideal for use in capturing the highest quality of wide field of view images of any of the various possible ranges of astronomical imaging- ranging from Lunar to Deep Sky observing. Furthermore, it's potential for long exposure times guarantees a wide range of variable uses- and the highest quality of images for layering to produce color from monochrome, as well!
