    1.SNU4kCAM - Seoul National University 4k x 4k Camera
    Purchased in December 2006 from Spectral Instruments through an SNU grant, this camera has a 4k x 4k back-illuminated chip made by Fairchild. It has multiple filters, such as UBVRI, Sloan ugriz, Y and H-alpha filters. It is currently installed on the Maidanak 1.5m telescopes.





    
2.CQUEAN
    CQUEAN (Camera for QUasars in EArly uNiverse) is a CCD camera which is sensitive to NIR (0.8 - 1.1  micron) due to the usage of a deep-depletion chip, making the camera useful for detecting the Lyman break of redshift ~5 quasars. Since the first light in August 2010, it has been in use on the 2.1m Otto-Stuve telescope at McDonald observatory,Texas, US for identifying high redshift quasar candidates and other studies.
