About SBIG STT-1603ME

The SBIG STT-1603ME Astronomy Camera with Self-Guiding Filter Wheel Pack has a new design with everything the astroimager could want in a camera. It features fast, low noise digitization and a full frame image buffer. At 10MHz the STT downloads a full frame, low-noise 8300 frame in less than a second. It also has superior two-stage cooling to -55C below ambient with air only. Its also water cooling-ready for additional cooling without having to buy a replacement back plate or other additional accessory. Its ready to go out of the box.

A multitude of advanced features such as built-in frost detection, RBI pre-flash, power management system, Ethernet and USB 2.0, high accuracy temperature control, sapphire window and user selectable internal image processing put this camera in a league of its own. The STT uses the same efficient pin fin heat sink design as the STX series cameras to achieve the most efficient use of space and weight while maximizing the cooling capability of the camera. This type of heat sink is more expensive than typical parallel fin heat sinks, but the results speak for themselves. The STT prototypes achieved an average temperature delta greater than -50C in 5 minutes and a max of -57C in less than ten.
