QHY 29 Cooled Monochrome CCD Telescope Camera
The QHY 29 Monochrome Cooled CCD Camera uses the latest Truesense interline CCD sensor. This sensor has an electronic shutter for very short exposure times. The QHY29 with KAI-29050 CCD is a full frame (35mm format) CCD. QHYCCD's anti-dew technology and 2-stage TE cooling enable cooling of the sensor to -45C below ambient. This reduces the dark current to less than 0.05e- at typical operating temperatures.
The KAI−29050 Image Sensor is a 29 Megapixel CCD in a 35 mm optical format. Based on the TRUESENSE 5.5 micron Interline Transfer CCD Platform, the sensor features broad dynamic range, excellent imaging performance, and a flexible readout architecture. A vertical overflow drain structure suppresses image blooming and enables electronic shuttering for precise exposure control.
This camera has a built-in USB 2.0 HUB and dual USB to RS232 converter. An external trigger in and out connections are provided at the back of the camera. A guiding camera, mount, and electric focuser can all connect directly to the camera instead of separate connections to the computer. Only one USB cable is required control the whole system for capturing an image. The power socket has a threaded locking collar and the 3-pin aviation socket RS232 port make the system stable and solid. A 4-pin color wheel port is also available to connect a QHY color filter wheel.
