QHY 168 Cooled Color CMOS Telescope Camera

With the QHY 168 Cooled Color CMOS Telescope Camera, get better cooling and a higher frame rate resulting in longer exposure times. Produce smear-free, stunning images of the Universe with its improved global shutter technology and dynamic performance. 

 

The QHY 168 Cooled Color CMOS Telescope Camera Experience

True raw 14 bit preserves original data by giving you a fantastic shot the first time. Do less, if any, edits during processing which gives you the maximum compatibility with astronomical imaging processing programs and other scientific imaging applications. 

Glow-free Performance

The QHY 168 Cooled Color CMOS 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- which is an advantageously low readout noise. This results in a clear image that distorts very slowly, allowing long exposures to produce unforgettable astro-images. Image wide-field and high-resolution views of astronomical objects. 

Refined Mechanics

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.
