Glossary | Telescope accessories | Capacity | Full well capacity

The full well capacity indicates how many electrons a single pixel can hold. The larger the chip, the more sensitive it is to light, and the more electrons it can absorb. But what does that mean? The noise is reduced at a large full well capacity and the ability to reproduce very bright and dark objects simultaneously increases.
