QHY 814A Cooled Monochrome CCD Telescope Camera

The QHY 814 Monochrome CCD Camera uses the high QE, SONY ICX814 ExView II CCD which has a peak QE close to 80%. The read noise is as low as 5 electrons. With the two-stage TEC, sensor temperatures of -40C below ambient which produces an exceptionally clean image. The camera has a built-in filter wheel with either a 7-position, 36mm unmounted filter carousel, or an 8-position, 1.25-inch carousel. You can load a full complement of LRGB Ha OIII SII filters into either carousel at one time, making LRGB and Narrowband imaging much easier than using a 5-position wheel that requires you to change filter sets depending on the type of imaging you intend to do. Although the sensor has an electronic shutter, this camera also has a mechanical shutter. This makes it possible to automatically take dark frames, unattended.
