Moravian Instruments G4-16000 Monochrome CCD Camera with LARGE 36x36mm imaging area, 16MPixel Resolution, Low Noise, High Quantum Efficiency Kodak KAF-16803 CCD Sensor for scientific applications, such as astrometry and photometry as well as narrow-band astrophotography with Antiblooming and Electronic Shutter

The large, 9µm pixel size makes this camera ideal for large RCs, SCTs, Newtonians and similar telescopes with an aperture of around 10" - 14", but please contact us for further advice. For even larger telescopes, the G4-9000 version would be better suited.

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.
