The ST-7XMEI is a single sensor version of the ST-7XME with no internal guiding CCD. The imaging CCD is a Class 2 KAF-0402ME with no column defects and the same high QE as the most expensive model. The entry level price for the ST-7XMEI makes it an ideal way to get started with the most popular, and the most sensitive, astronomical CCD camera in its class.

The ST-7XME and ST-7XMEI cameras use the same electronics and USB 1.1 interface that is as fast as some competitors' USB 2.0. This model is also intended for those who may already have a guiding solution such as the STV or another CCD camera. It is also an excellent TDI imager.
