About SBIG STF-8300M

The SBIG STF-8300M Pro Plus Package with St-i Mono Autoguider/Planetary Imager is a second-generation camera using the popular KAF-8300 CCD. Integrated 5-position and 8-position filter wheels are available as well as a new integrated, low profile, wide field off-axis guiding accessory that, along with the ST-i, allows the STF-8300 to act as a self-guiding camera.

The STF-8300 also continues the SBIG tradition of a user rechargeable desiccant plug and even-illumination, photometric shutter and user-selectable automatic-artifact-repair or raw images for total control in post processing. SBIG mechanical shutters have been designed for highly reliable, even illumination, of the sensor even at short exposures. Even illumination is especially critical when taking flat fields with exposures of less than a second or even several seconds. This is very common when taking sky flats.

SBIG STF-8300M Features

  • 10 Megapixel/second digitization rate for faster image download (Full frame < 1 sec
  • Faster sampling speed and full frame image buffer, resulting in higher quality images with fewer artifacts and cleaner FFT's
  • Less post processing required (and with the extra low dark current of 8300 CCD casual imagers may not need to perform any post processing)
  • User-selectable choice of automatic image artifact repair for cleaner images or raw images for total control in post-processing
