My STX16200 arrived today courtesy FedEx. I suspect OnSemi have refined their processes over the years, as this is a remarkably clean chip (60 second dark attached) compared to my KAF16803...which wasn't too shabby!

The thermal load also seems quite a bit lower than trying to cool a KAF16803.

As you can see from the status line the chip was sitting at -30C with the cooler just idling at 63% (ambient was 23c).

I'm now rather pleased to have gone for a last generation CCD over early generation sCMOS.
