The ST-1603ME is the same as the ST-402ME, with the exception of the imaging CCD. The ST-1603ME uses the KAF-1603ME CCD, (this CCD is Class 2) the same sensor SBIG used in the ST- 8XME. This CCD is 1530 x 1020 pixels at 9 microns. However, due to the size of the array, the CFW-402 internal color filter wheel cannot be used.

For color or photometric applications the CFW10-SA with standard 1.25" filters can be used instead. The ST-1603ME is intended primarily for industrial and life science applications where a faster download rate is more important than maximum cooling or self-guiding. It will also perform very well for astronomical applications, particularly where an external guider is already available.
