The main imaging CCD camera is a Quantum Scientific Imaging QSI 516ws and is attached to the main telescope.  The imaging train includes a 0.7x Optec NextGen focal reducer/field flattener, giving an image scale of 0.64 arc-seconds/pixel at f/7.  The camera has a built-in filter wheel holding B, V, Rc, Ic filters for photometry, and Astrodon L, R,G, B filters for tri-colour imaging.

A Meade DSI PRO II CCD camera functions as a guide camera and can be attached either to the Meade 80mm APO refractor or used in the Sidewinder off-axis port to guide at f/10.
