Moravian G4 CCD Camera

The Moravian large format G4 CCD Camera offers two sensors.

The KAF 16803 Large format sensor - 36x36mm and 9u pixels

The KAF 0900 Large format sensor - 36.9mmx36.9mm and 12u pixels

The obvious choice for most amateur astronomers will be the KAF 16803

There is no internal filter wheel ption but a bolt on integrated 7 position 50mm x 50mm Filter Wheel and Off Axis Guider is offered.

The G4 camera dimensions are the same as the G3 series, with the exception of the camera head thickness G4 cameras are somewhat slimmer, because they do not contain an internal filter wheel. Also camera handling, software control, power supply and connection to the host PC using fast USB 2.0 interface is the same as the G3 cameras.

The filter wheel takes 50 50 mm square filters (round filters of 50 mm diameter cause vignetting on such a large CCD chip) and cannot be placed inside the camera head due to limited space. But it is possible to connect external filter wheel for 7 large filters to the G4 camera, the camera head already contains connector for external filter wheel control.
