SBIG-ST-6B CCD imaging camera + Software Bisque IFocus ocular.

(Upgraded by SBIG from plain ST-6 configuration for greater cooling efficiency via fan.)

Complete with items shown in the attached photo. CCD head, cables, control box, imaging software AC adapter and all manuals. Purchased for project but never used.
Includes IFocus ocular to facilitate focusing. You insert the IFocus Ocular into your telescope in place of the CCD camera. You then focus with your eye, just like you do when observing. (To aid you in focusing and centering, the IFocus Ocular provides a circular field of view that is similar in size to the CCD camera's field of view.)Once you are focused, you simply replace the IFocus Ocular with your CCD camera. Because the human eye does such a magnificent job of averaging optical and atmospheric effects, you achieve the best focus very quickly, drastically increasing your image acquisition

$895 + s/h

From SBIG site:
The ST-6B uses a proprietary two stage thermoelectric cooler design. The CCD temperature is user selectable and regulated to 0.1 degree. The ST-6B incorporates a unique feature called Automatic Track &
Accumulate (TRACCUM), allowing automatic guiding of long integrated images. In the TRACCUM mode the ST-6B will take an exposure, determine the position of a preselected star, add the image to the image sum building in an internal memory buffer, correct the telescope's position and then start the cycle over again. In this mode up to 64 images can be co-added. The resulting exposure is almost as good as a single long exposure, dependent on the exposure used and the actual sky conditions. The great sensitivity of the
CCD virtually guarantees that there will be a usable guide star within the field of view. This patented feature provides dramatic performance and makes long exposures easy.

CCD: TI TC-241
Pixel Array: 375 x 241 pixels, 8.6 x 6.5 mm
Total Pixels: 91,000
Pixel Size: 23 x 27 microns
