Apogee Alta U47 CCD camera, with thinned back-illuminated CCD for high quantum efficiency and increased blue sensitivity.
1000 x 1000 pixels, 13 micron. Very high sensitivity with thinned back-illumined E2V CCD. Quantum efficiency up to 90% across V and R. Blue sensitivity around 45%. This is a science-capable camera, used for photometry for years. Original camera was an AP-47, with the chip transferred to an Alta U-series body several years ago. Camera operating flawlessly.

Includes 1-1/4” IR cutoff filter to prevent fringing inherent with this type of chip.

Closing observatory due to age and infirmity of operator, not that of instrumentation.


  • Condition Good
  • Location Bennett, Colorado
