For auction is an SBIG STXL 6303E CCD camera. I am the original owner. Purchased in 2015. It has been a solid camera and reliable performer. Reason I am selling is I initially thought I was going to do some photometry but never did so only regular imaging was done. It is a non anti-blooming camera and very sensitive so even when using wider field set-ups with narrow band filters there were still star blooms that I had to remove. I have since acquired full frame ccds so this camera is not being used currently. However I have several images posted among which are 3 done in the last year. These include M8, M31 and IC410. M81 and M15 were done several years ago. I have a recent dark frame included in the series of images and for anyone interested I have a column defect list available. There is one full column defect. There are four other partial defects that are visible

What is being auctioned:

  • SBIG STXL 6303E camera with 3” nose piece
  • AC adaptor and power cord. The end of the cord going into the camera has electrical tape on it (see image included) to cover a short 3-4mm gap that developed between the camera plug and cord insulation leaving the small wires in that segment exposed. No operational issue with it.
  • 2 usb cables. 1 15ft and 1 3ft. The 3 ft cable is useful if you decide to use a hub or if you need a reliable test of the camera to PC connection.
  • Pelican case

No other accessories are included. Drivers and software are readily downloaded from the SBIG website. I was using the FW8G-STXL self-guiding filter wheel which worked great with this. That is not for sale.

Please note I can only ship to a shipping address in CONUS, not outside. PayPal only including the 3% fee or you can use friend/family option. Shipping is free.

Thanks for looking!

**Attn all bidders. I will be traveling today from 8AM EST until about 6:30PM. I will have a short window of time from around 10-12 to answer any last minute questions. I will do my best. Thanks for your interest!
