Deep Cooled Vacuum CCD, with 2048 x 2048 resolution. The best in class
Introducing one of the most sensitive CCD cameras in the World. The Eagle V combines a number of key elements required for ultra-sensitive imaging. Using a back-illumintated 4MP CCD sensor from e2v, and putting into Raptor's proprietary PentaVac vacuum enclousure and cooling it to a delta of greater than -110°C using a multi-stage TEC and liquid cooling, the Eagle V is the perfect camera for long exposures in applications including high resolution fluorescence imaging and astronomy. Offering low read noise of <3e- unbinned and binning options up to 32x32, the Eagle also offers dual read-out rates of 75kHz and 2MHz.
The Eagle V offers "best in class" performance with low residual charge and ghosting diminished. Raptor has designed this camera as it does with all it's cameras making it very rugged and reliable. To that end we are offering a lifetime guarantee on the vacuum meaning that the camera will cool to spec every time.
