Dalsa Technologies has successfully created and delivered a 100 MP+ CCD imager to Semiconductor Technology Associates (STA) in San Juan Capistrano, California. STA is providing the chip to the US Naval Observatory to help in mapping out the location and movement of celestial objects. Readers who are thinking of the potential of a DSLR with such an imager will have to wait longer for more innovation: the chip is approximately four inches by four inches and would not fit in any traditional 35mm format body currently available.
