Description

In superb condition and full working order, a big pixel comet/exo planet hunter :0

Great with longer focal length scopes

The ST-9XE is a dual sensor, self-guiding CCD camera with longer focal length for users who may want a larger CCD but don't need a megapixel for their application. The ST-9XE is perfect for such things as astrometry and supernova searches with larger telescopes. It uses a Class 1 "E" CCD with high QE and no column defects. It includes the built-in TC-237H tracking CCD, Remote Guiding Head Port, custom carrying case, water cooling heat exchanger, relay adapter plug, relay cables for self-guiding, and extra software.

The ST-9XE cameras use the KAF-0261E CCD from Kodak with 512 x 512 pixels at 20 microns. The area of the array is about 80% the size of the more expensive ST-8XE and 330% the size of the array used in the ST-7XME. The Self-Guiding model uses the TC-237H tracking CCD which is now standard in all of SBIG self-guiding cameras. The TC-237H array is 657 x 495 pixels at 7.4 microns. Both the ST-9XE and ST-9XEI cameras use the same electronics and USB 1.1 interface that is as fast as some competitors' USB 2.0.
