Eagle 1MP

The BEST CCD on the market today!

Adding a new option to one of the most sensitive CCD camera platforms in the World. Using a back-illuminated CCD sensor from Teledyne e2v (CCD47-10), and putting into Raptor’s proprietary PentaVac vacuum enclosure and cooling it to -90°C with air and liquid and -80°C with air only, the Eagle 1MP is the perfect camera for long exposures. It comes with a C-Mount and an integrated shutter and offers low read noise of <2.3e- unbinned and programable binning options up to 16×16. The Eagle 1MP also offers dual read-out rates of 75kHz and 2MHz.

  • 7-year vacuum guarantee – Protection and integrity of the sensor
  • Extremely low dark current – Deep cooled to -90°C with air and liquid or -80°C with air only to enable long exposure times
  • High QE: >90% @ 525nm and 50% @ 380nm & 720nm– Optimum photon collection
  • Back-illuminated 1MP sensor from Teledyne e2v – Enables large field of view imaging
  • C-mount integrated shutter – closed during readout to avoid vertical smear
  • 13µm x 13µm pixels (1MP) – Enables ultra-sharp image resolution

QE measured at -90°C. For more information on the effects of cooling on QE, please refer to our Tech Note – Factors affecting Quantum Efficiency of High-Performance Cameras
