AllSky-340 Camera

The AllSky-340 and AllSky-340C
SBIG, also known as the Santa Barbara Instrument Group, released the  AllSky-340 and AllSky-340C earlier  this year.
The model 340 is a monochrome camera and the model 340C uses a colour CCD.  This is  SBIGs third version of a weatherproof AllSky camera for monitoring weather conditions.  The first was discontinued when they stopped production of the ST-237A, and the second went obsolete when the lens that they were using became unavailable, with no suitable replacement. 
The sensor is the Kodak KAI-340 CCD, with 640x480 pixels, 7.4 microns square, and a high gain output stage for excellent sensitivity.  The camera electronics and CCD are from the Smart Guider camera, a autonomous guide camera. 
The sensor body is coupled to a fisheye Fujinon lens inside a weatherproof aluminium housing with an acrylic dome providing a full view of the sky.

Price: $2195 with fisheye lens ($1695 without lens).
