  • A charge-coupled device (CCD) is a device for the movement of electrical charge, usually from within the device to an area where the charge can be manipulated, for example conversion into a digital value. This is achieved by "shifting" the signals between stages within the device one at a time.
  • Short for "charge-coupled device." A CCD is a light-sensitive electronic detector widely used in making astronomical images. Sensitive over a wide range of wavelengths, and much more efficient than emulsion in gathering light, CCDs are often used to image extremely faint objects.
  • A Charge Coupled Device, or CCD camera, converts light into electrical charges. This type of camera is used often in astrophotography.

SBIG ST-2000XM 2.0 Megapixel Camera with Kodak KAI-2020M Imaging CCD
SBIG ST-2000XM 2.0 Megapixel Camera with Kodak KAI-2020M Imaging CCD
The ST-2000XM camera uses the high quality interline CCD from Kodak, the Kodak Digital Science KAI-2020M Image Sensor Megapixel Progressive Scan Interline CCD. The Kodak Digital Science KAI-2020M is a high-performance multi-megapixel image sensor designed for a wide range of scientific, medical imaging, and machine vision applications. The 7.4 mm square pixels with microlenses provide high sensitivity and the large full well capacity results in high dynamic range. The vertical overflow drain structure provides antiblooming protection, and enables electronic shuttering for precise exposure control to 0.001 seconds. Other features include low dark current, negligible lag and low smear. The KAI-2020M CCD is a 2 megapixel progressive scan detector with an active image area of 1.92 million pixels. The active image area is 1600 x 1200 pixels. The ST-2000XM includes a high quality carrying and storage case made for SBIG by Pelican. These deluxe carrying cases are dust proof, water proof, and crush proof and carry a lifetime guarantee from the manufacturer. The custom cut foam securely holds the camera and power supply with additional spots for accessories, cables, etc.

Recent set-up with Takahashi TOA-130F & SBIG ST-8300
Recent set-up with Takahashi TOA-130F & SBIG ST-8300
This is my new main astrophoto set up (as of May 2010).Takahashi TOA-130F APO and SBIG ST-8300 Cooled CCD Camera on Takahashi EM-200 Temma2 equitorial mount. On the photo, I am using a 3" reducer to change the focal length from 1000mm to 750mm, and it becomes faster F5.8 refractor. On the other hand, for the small deep sky objects, such as a galaxy, I also purchased a separate 4" 6X7 format flattner that provides a _huge_ 4X6 format image circle while keeping the focal length at 1000mm. Of coutrse, I may opt to use SBIG ST-10XE for the small, dark DSOs instead of ST-8300 for higher quantum efficiency. :)

SBIG ST-10XME 3.2 Megapixel Camera with High QE Kodak KAF-3200ME and Texas Instruments TC-237 CCD, Class 2
The ST-10XME is the highest resolution CCD cameras in the "ST" series from SBIG. The body is identical to the ST-7XME, ST-8XME, ST-9XE, and ST- 2000XM models with some slight modifications to accommodate the larger detector. The ST-10XME contains an enhanced KAF-3200ME imaging detector from Kodak. The only difference between the CCDs is the addition of a micro lens layer over the pixels of the KAF-3200ME CCD for increased sensitivity. These 3.2 megapixel CCDs have a Full Frame Resolution of 2184 x 1472 pixels at 6.8 microns making them the ultimate cameras for wide field apochromatic refractors. The active imaging area is 17% greater than the ST-8XME and the arrays contain approximately twice as many pixels. The imaging camera includes an electro-mechanical shutter, 16 bit analog to digital (A/D) converter, regulated temperature control, and built-in TC-237H, guiding CCD with all of the electronics integrated into the CCD head. Communication to the PC is through the USB port at up to 425,000 pixels per second. The Kodak Digital Science TM KAF-3200E Image Sensor is a high density, 3.2 million pixel, full-frame Blue Plus image sensor. It joins the family of Kodak Blue Plus sensors with improved quantum efficiency across the visible spectrum. Ultra-low dark current of less than 1e-/pixel/second at 0o C (typical) allows moderate cooling for applications involving extended exposures. With an improved liquid cooling design, the ST-10XME cameras will reach approxim
