SBIG Aluma CCD47-10

Our new high performance Aluma® CCD Series cameras offer capabilities and features not available in any other scientific-grade imaging camera.  This lightweight (2.2 lbs) and compact (4.5" x 4.5" x 4" with handles) camera includes two-stage cooling, USB 2.0 interface, ultra-reliable even-illumination shutter, and fast low-noise readout.

The Aluma CCD series supports a wide range of accessories, including the 8-position FW8S-Aluma filter wheel with micron-level filter positioning, StarChaser SC-2 off-axis guide camera, and AO-8A Adaptive Optics accessory.

The Aluma CCD47-10 has an extremely high sensitivity, 1 megapixel back-illuminated CCD sensor with 13.3 micron pixels.  These are research-grade cameras designed for longer focal length instruments typically with apertures greater than 40 cm.

Aluma CCD is a new generation of research cameras tuned for even better performance. Over two years of collaboration with university researchers helped us bring you an enhanced new Aluma CCD series that represent the ultimate in a high-performance mid-sized 16-bit CCD detector. Using E2V's best-in-class research grade back-illuminated sensors, the Aluma CCD47-10 gives you the high sensitivity, low noise, and high well depth needed for the most demanding research applications.

Available with Midband (default), Broadband, and Enhanced UV coatings.  


FW8S-Aluma is the 8-position filter wheel for Aluma CCD Series cameras.  It is compatible with Canon EOS and Nikon lens adapters.


The carousel holds eight 36mm filters and inserts are available for 1.25" filters.  The 36 mm filters provide unvignetted imaging for the largest Aluma sensors.

Aluma wheels include a positive centering mechanism that precisely centers each filter in the exact same position every time. This single-pixel accuracy completely eliminates ghost images of dust spots and other artifacts after flat-fielding.
