The 583 series houses Kodak’s 8.3-megapixel KAF-8300 CCD chip. QSI electronically cools the chip with air, which reduces the amount of noise in exposures.

During the past several years, astroimagers have seen an unprecedented number of high-quality, innovative cameras come on the market. While many of these products are from manufacturers well-known to seasoned imagers, others originate from companies relatively new to the scene.
