    Used SBIG STL11000 With Astrodon LRGB and Ha - UT-11551 - SOLD

    The Research Series cameras include several exciting new features: internal self-guiding (US Patent 5,525,793), optional remote self-guiding, internal filter wheel, two-stage cooling, high speed USB interface and more. These cameras have two CCDs inside, one for guiding and a large one for imaging. An optional remote guiding head may be added for guiding through an external optical system or through an off-axis guider placed before the camera. The low noise of the read out electronics virtually guarantees that a usable guide star will be within the field of the guiding CCD for telescopes with F/numbers F/6.3 or faster. The two-stage new cooling design is capable of exceptional performance even in warm climates. The relay output plugs directly into most recent commercial telescope drives and is easily modifiable to virtually any drive system. As a result, you can take hour long guided exposures with ease, using either the built-in guiding CCD or the remote guiding head. The internal guiding CCD eliminates differential deflection of guide scope relative to the main telescope and requires no radial guider setup hassles. The remote guiding head allows for a convenient alternative when imaging through narrow band filters where suitable guide stars may be difficult to find. This dual tracking mode capability, coupled with the phenomenal sensitivity of the CCD, will allow the user to acquire observatory class images of deep sky images with modest apertures! The technology also makes image stabilization possible through our AO-7. The new Research Series of cameras incorporate the following design features and improvements over predecessors: ¾ Uses high speed USB for faster downloads with rates up to 425,000 pixels / second. ¾ Adds a new I2C bi-directional AUX port for future use. ¾ LEDs on the digital board show relay activations (helpful for troubleshooting). ¾ New two-stage cooling with water circulation capability built-in. ¾ No firmware ROM to update, software uploads to camera at boot-up. ¾ New capabilities can be added to the camera by replacing the loader driver. ¾ New Boot sequence, LED flashes and fan comes on when firmware upload is complete. ¾ LED flashes when initializing shutter. ¾ Mechanical/electronic design work to reduce shutter errors and stray light. ¾ Larger TC237 autoguider CCD (656 x 495 at 7.4u). ¾ Standard STL Camera body with sealed internal CCD chamber and external even illumination shutter
