Product Details

  • The QHY 290 Coldmos Cooled Monochrome CMOS Camera uses an extremely sensitive BSI CMOS sensor. With its extremely low read noise, High Quantum efficiency, deep cooling, and fast frame rates, this camera performs exceptionally well for planetary and Deep space imaging. 

    The QHY290M has a 12MB DDR buffer which will prevent dropped frames and run multiple cameras without USB transfer problems. With the 12MB DDR buffer, you are able to capture still images or video footage without data being lost or corrupted.

    For more than a decade QHY has been designing cooled cameras and applied all of their knowledge to the QHY290 camera.  The full anti-dew technology includes a sealed CMOS chamber with silicon gel tube socket and a heated chamber optical window.  These features prevent dew from forming on the sensor and the chamber window allowing your to image in cold and humid environments.
