Product Details

  • SBIG's mid-size, high performance Aluma Series cameras offer features and capabilities that are not available in any other scientific-grade imaging camera! This series of cameras also supports a vast range or accessories, from the 8-position FW8S-Aluma filter wheel and StarChaser SC-2 off-axis guide camera, to the AO-8A Adaptive Optics accessory and Remote Guide Head. The AL-U814-SC-PRO-PACK is equipped with USB interface.

    SBIG Aluma 814 Camera

    SBIG's Aluma 814 Camera is a high sensitivity, low noise 9 megapixel CCD with 3.69 micron pixels. It includes 2-stage cooling, USB 2.0 interface, even-illumination shutter, and fast low-noise readout, making this lightweight (2.2 lb) camera both compact and functional.

    The ICX-814 CCD is one of the most advanced optical sensors that has ever been produced. Its combination of high sensitivity and very low noise means that your images will come faster, cleaner, and deeper! This sensor's peak quantum efficiency (QE) is over 75% and has overall spectral sensitivity, but is especially sensitive to blue light.


    FW8S-Aluma is the standard (non-guided) 8-position filter wheel for Aluma Series cameras. This filter wheel does not have a built-in self-guiding image sensor. It is compatible with Canon EOS and Nikon lens adapters.

    The carousel holds eight 36mm filters and SBIG has 1.25" inserts available separately. The 36mm filters offer unvignetted imaging for the largest Aluma sensors. Aluma wheels are machined with a positive centering mechanism that centers each filter in the exact same position every single time you use it. Talk about pinpoint single pixel accuracy!

    36mm Round Optical Filters

    The 36mm round optical filters are compatible with both FW8-8300 and FW8S-Aluma filter wheels. They are specifically built to SBIG's exact specifications. In this package you will receive 2 sets of filters.

  • 1st set: LRGB Package (Luminance, Red, Green, and Blue)
  • 2nd set: Narrowband Package (Ha, SII, and OIII)
  • SBIG StarChaser Off-Axis Guider Camera

    The StarChaser (SC-2) is the world's first all-in-one off-axis guider that is equipped with a built-in camera and integrated AO support. You will also receive MaxIm LT software for full operation.
