Moravian Instruments G4-9000 Monochrome CCD Camera with LARGE 36x36mm imaging area, 9MPixel Resolution, Low Noise, High Quantum Efficiency Kodak KAF-09000 CCD Sensor for scientific applications, such as astrometry and photometry as well as narrow-band astrophotography with Antiblooming and Electronic Shutter

Due to the very large pixel size, this camera is recommended for very large telescopes, usually about or above 14" - 20" aperture. For 10" - 14" RCs, Newtonians and similar telescopes, the G4-16000 would be a better match, but please contact us for advice.

Please note, there is no built in filter wheel in this camera due to the large sensor. We would also recommend to buy a 5-position external filter that would hold 50x50mm square filters that are necessary for this CCD size to achieve vignetting-free images. 50x50mm square filters from Astrodon, Astronomik, Baader, Chroma or Optolong are also available separately.
