    Ultimate Package Components

    Aluma AC4040 scientific CMOS camera

    The Aluma AC4040 is a large format Scientific CMOS camera, featuring a 16.8-megapixel sensor with 9-micron pixels. The camera is compatible with the StarChaser SC-3 Guider and optional AO-X Adaptive Optics accessories.

    AFW-10-50SQ Filter Wheel

    SBIG AFW Filter Wheels are ultra-thin wheels that minimize back focus distance. The standard version, which accommodates filters ranging from 1 mm to 3 mm thick, uses only 0.55" (14 mm) back focus.

    StarChaser SC-3 off-axis guide camera

    The SBIG StarChaser is the world's first all-in-one off-axis guider with a built-in camera and integrated AO support. Comes complete with MaxIm LT software.

    AO-X adaptive optics unit

    The next generation of adaptive optics for our SBIG large-format cameras.

    StarChaser to AO-X adapter cable

    Connects a StarChaser SC-3 to an AO-X.

    50 mm square LRGB filters

    SBIG 50 mm square optical filters are compatible with FW7-STX filter wheels, which work with STX-16803 and Aluma AC4040 cameras.  These filters are built for SBIG to our exacting specifications.  All filters are parfocal, which avoids unnecessary refocusing.

    SBIG 50 mm square optical filters are compatible with FW7-STX filter wheels, which work with STX-16803 and Aluma AC4040 cameras. These filters are built for SBIG to our exacting specifications. All filters are parfocal, which avoids unnecessary refocusing.
