The Apogee Alta and Aspen cameras, now manufactured by Andor (Oxford Insturments) were formerly produced by Apogee CCD. These cameras are in use on most of the Shared Skies telescopes as primary sensors for imaging, photometry and spectroscopy. There are models featuring various CCD sensors, shutter designs, and interface speeds, but they share common mechanical designs and for the most part also operate with the same software.
