Santa Barbara Instrument Group provides Charge Coupled Devices (CCD) imaging and guide systems with out-standing value and perform

ance.  Their CCDs are amazingly sensitivity with dynamic range.  SBIG is highly regarded for their many patented innovations.

SBIG has a complete line up of CCD cameras, from the SBIG ST Series CCD Cameras to the professional line of SBIG STL Se

ries CCD Cameras. SBIG also manufactures CCD camera accessories such as adaptive optics, color filter wheels, filters, spectrograhs, and guiders, camera lens adapters.

For the amateur astronomer, Santa Barbara Instrument Group has developed the single sensor CCD cameras.  The ST-402ME single sensor series are compact and lightweight.  The STF-8300 series are the second generation, single sensor. SBIG has also created the self-guided imaging cameras.  The STX-16803 model was SBIG’s only self-guiding imaging CCD but as of June 2012 a new model STT-8300M will be available.  

Adaptive optics offered by SBIG are: AO-8 and AO-L. The AO-8 is to for ST-7/8/9/10/2000/4000 cameras only.  The AO-L is for large format STL cameras.  SBIG has a large range of filter wheels and filters.  The filter wheels they offer are 4-position filter models, 5-Position models, 8-Position models, and 10-position models.  The sizes that filters come in are 1.25 inches, 36mm, 50mm, 50.8mm, and 65 mm.  

Three spectrograph models are manufactured by SBIG.  There is the Deep Space Spectrograph model that is for single sensor cameras. The Self-Guiding Spectrograph model is used with dual sensor and the last model is the Self-Guiding Spectrograph with 1800:600 grating.  

The quality in all Santa Barbara Instrument Group products shows their dedication to the astronomy industry and their customers.
