Here is a great way to jump up to big chip CCD imaging - a Class 1 1530 x 1020 pixel NABG chip with 9 micron pixels! This is the same chip as in the SBIG ST-8.
Everything you need for full color imaging! Includes the color filter wheel with clear, red, green, and blue filters for RGB or LRGB imaging, as well as an Adaptec controller for your notebook! Selling to fund another purchase.
Just received back from Meade for checkup and cleaning within the last month, everything works perfectly.
Included as shown in photograph:
Meade Pictor 1616XTE CCD camera, with both SCSI (Fast!!!) and Serial connections
Meade control box
Cable from CCD to control box
Meade automatic filter wheel with parfocal clear, red, green, and blue dielectric interference filters (the good ones!)
Adaptec PCMCIA SCSI card and SCSI cable that works well with the camera
Hard carrying case with foam cutouts
Included but not in photo:
Both 12 volt and 120 volt power connectors
Meade PictorView software for imaging - (latest version always available for free download from Meade's web site)
The camera is also fully controllable with MaximDL if you prefer that.
If you're local, I'd be happy to set it up on your computer and show you how easy it is to operate.
