KAF 16803 full frame 37mm X 37mm chip

Looking through the Astro Physics 4" field flattener, CFW-5-7 filterwheel opening and Astronomik
Lum filter at the big 1354mm2 (2.1squ inch) 16.8mega pixel chip! Absolutely no vignetting here!

You can see the black chip mask around the chip to prevent stray internal reflections as well as
the anti-dew heaters (gold strips) to keep the outside of the CCD window free from any
condensation and icing in more humid conditions.

The camera has an ultra low reflection CCD window, see the window transmission curve:
