November 18, 1998
ST-7 / ST-8 Optional Two
Stage TE Cooling
and Water Assist Package *
ST-7 AND ST-8 ENHANCED COOLING PACKAGE. An enhanced cooling package is
available for the ST-7 and ST-8 cameras for use in warm climates or for anyone wishing to
get that extra bit of performance out of the camera by additional reduction of the dark
current. The enhanced cooling modifications are made at our plant to new cameras at
the time of order or may be retro-fitted to any existing ST-7 or ST-8 camera.
The optional enhancement package consists of the addition of a second thermoelectric
cooling stage and second 110VAC TE power supply (not shown), new heat sink, larger fan,
connections for additional water cooling (may be different than shown) and an optional
110VAC submersible water pump with tubing. The enhanced cooling package will result
in an additional 6 degrees C of cooling (- 31 degrees C minimum from ambient) with air
only, or an additional 15 degrees C of cooling (-40 degrees C minimum from ambient) with
Nebula (false color)
3 x 20 minute ST-7 images co-added with CCDOPS. Taken at minus 30
degrees C through a C-11 at f/6.3 (ambient temp +10C)
