The ST-9XEI is the single sensor version of the ST-9XE with no internal guiding CCD, however it does include the Remote Guiding Head Port for attachment of an optional external guiding head at any time. The ST-9XEI cameras use the KAF-0261E CCD from Kodak with 512 x 512 pixels at 20 microns. The area of the array is about 80% the size of the more expensive ST-8XE and 330% the size of the array used in the ST-7XME.

Both the ST-9XE and ST-9XEI cameras use the same electronics and USB 1.1 interface that is as fast as some competitors' USB 2.0. Like the ST-7XEI, this single CCD version is an ideal way to get started with a professional quality camera at a reasonable price or for anyone who may already have a guiding solution such as the STV or another CCD camera. It is also an excellent TDI imager.
