Product Description

SBIG STF402 Monochrome CCD Camera

We include custom adapters in an imaging package, complete turnkey imaging solutions to customers, no matter the kind of scope, camera, reducer, guider, or rotator customers happen to choose.

The SBIG STF402M is a scientific grade CCD camera featuring a full frame sensor in a compact body at an affordable cost.    A premium choice for the astronomy student or beginning astroimager, easily add an optional color filter wheel with either RGBC or BVIC filters.    Also makes a superior choice for a guide camera thanks to a wide field of view and high sensor sensitivity.  

The goal of the STF-402 was powerful simplcity and the result is a fast, compact, easy to use camera that produces photometric quality images thanks to an even-illumation shutter for automatic dark frames.   Low noise combined with very high peak QE (nearly 85%) create a highly sensitive camera, almost unheard of at this price and that easily competes with cameras many times higher in cost. 

 Now standard equipment on all STF-402 cameras, the enhanced cooling package include a larger heat sink installed in the camera, a large 50mm magnetic levitating fan and fan guard and a newly designed back plate to hold the fan and fan housing.  An internal board routes additional power to the TE cooler as well so no external power source is neeeded.  The addition of these parts increases the camera body depth by a minute 4mm, the fan plus guard ads another 10mm.  The backfocus, however, remains unchanged. 

The STF402 is perfectly at home as an imager or a guider.  The included electronic relays provide an autoguider output from the RJ-11 jack, which makes it simple to use the STF as an autoguider.  As an autoguider, the STF402 is much more sensitive than typical guiding counterparts and has a very wide field of view.    HIgh speed readout rate is 5MP per second.  A full frame, high-resolution image from the STF-402M will download in less than 1/4 second using USB 2.0 cables. A power supply regulator is built into the camera so you can use unregulated 12V DC power supplies.   An included 100-240 universal AC supply is included.   The increased sensitivity becomes a major benefit for those imaging in less than great sky conditions as it can pick up even faint stars.  The STF-402M can autoguide or image, and using using SBIG's patented Track & Accumulate feature, a sequence of images can be captured and automatically aligned and stacked (co-added) as you go.   The STF-402M's internal relays allow the camera to autoguide almost any commercial telescope with an autoguider port.  It will also control an external Relay Adapter Box for unusual telescope drives or older ones that need to be isolated electrically from the autoguider.
