Product Details

  • The Alta F16M features the largest sensor in the Alta range- a very large format 16.8 megapixel full frame sensor with micro-lenses and transparent gate electrodes to maximize sensitivity, as well as anti-blooming structure. Cooling down to 45°C below ambient results in a low darkcurrent contribution. These features make the Alta F16M an ideal solution for applications requiring both a large field of view and optimal signal to noise ratio, such as astrophotography, sky surveys and radiology.
