Product Details

  • The Alta F42 has a back-illuminated full frame 4.2 megapixel CCD with very high quantum efficiency (>90% @550nm) and without anti-blooming structures to further improve sensitivity. The midband coating provides the highest peak in the visible range. Cooling down to 50°C below ambient results in a low dark current contribution. These features combine to make the Alta F42 an exceptionally versatile performer, and an ideal solution for many astronomy or physical science applications that require high sensitivity and a large field of view.
