The blurb from Meade:
The Meade Pictor 1616XTE imaging system utilizes the Kodak KAF-1602E CCD sensor, one of the largest (13.80mm x 9.20mm) such chips currently in commercial production. With the same pixel density, ultra-low dark current, and ultra-low readout noise of the Pictor 416XTE, but with four times the pixel quantity and chip area, the 1616XTE permits professional-quality imaging of very large areas of the sky.
(So there is no confusion, this is a single chip camera, it does not have a separate autoguider chip - they are useless when imaging with Ha filters, anyway!)
Terms: Would prefer $100 on PayPal immediately to hold it for you, then the rest with a bank Cashier's check.
