What are the differences between the two nightscape cameras
October 26, 2014
|Kodak KAI-10100 Color
|Kodak KAF- 8300 Color
|3760 x 2840 (10.7Mp)
|3326 x 2504 (8.3Mp)
|Full -well capacity
|Read noise (RMS)
|2x2 in color, 4x4 in color
|2x2 in monochrome
|At full 1x1 resolution, sensitivity is best matched with short telescopes with a fast f-ratio, such as an EdgeHD with Hyperstar (f/2). In 2x2 and 4x4 binning modes, the camera is considerably more sensitive and suited for longer focal length telescopes like the EdgeHD operating at f/10 or f/11. This provides great versatility for most imaging configurations .
|The KAF-8300's inherent low noise, high sensitivity, and relativley small pixel size mit ideal for a wide range of medium to long focal length telescopes, such as an EdgeHD system with a 0.7 Reducer Lens, as well as most refractor and reflector telescopes.
|The Original Nightscape offers more pixels per dollar than any other cooled 16-bit color CCD in the market.
|Best-valued KAF-8300 camera available, setting a new standard for intermediate level imaging.
