The Moravian Instruments G3-11000 Monochrome CCD Camera has a large format low noise, high quantum efficiency Kodak KAI-11002 Class 2 CCD Sensor.

The Class 2 sensor differs from a Class 1 in that up to 15 column defects are allowed on the sensor. However there must be a space of at least 4 zero defect columns between. In normal use the slight variations in column brightness etc is not readily noticable and can be compensated for during processing if present. Most CCD cameras supplied all use Class 2 sensors, Class 1 being normally reserved for Scientific Applications. Of course Class 2 has one significant benefit which is the considerable reduction in price compared to a Class 1 sensor!

Its large 36mm x 24mm sensor is equivalent in size to the traditional 35mm film format. The camera is therefore ideal for imagaing large areas of the sky and may be used with conventional camera lenses designed for this image format.

A version of the camera is available with an internal filter wheel for use with 5 x 2" filters
