QHY 168 Cooled Color CMOS Telescope Camera

This top quality color CMOS camera operates at a 14 bit rate in a 16 megapixel format using the IMX071 sensor.  The IMX071 is an APS-C format sensor with a pixel array of 4952 x 3288 with 4.8 micrometer size pixels. It averages a 2.3e- readout noise, which is remarkably low; this results in a clear image that distorts very slowly, allowing long exposures to produce top tier astro-images. It also utilizes a TEC 'Thermo-Electric-Cooling' unit to regulate temperature, permitting extended imaging sessions. Adding to the quality is a DDRII image buffer which regulates the transfer of data between the camera and your computer.
