QHYCCD QHY5L-II-M (Mono) Planetary and Gui... $189.00
The QHY5L-II Series uncooled cameras fit in a standard 1.25-inch eyepiece holder and have an adjustable location ring for confocality with an eyepiece. They are ideal for use as low-weight autoguiders or planetary cameras where short exposures are typical. Description The cameras come in very small but powerful packages! The improved thermal design allows the heat generated by the CMOS sensor to be transferred externally to the telescope’s eyepiece tube. QHY5L-II is one of our most popular guide cameras, it has high sensitivity, an exceptional 74% QE, and low noise. The read noise is remarkably low (~ 4 electrons) and...

QHYCCD QHY5III178M (Mono) Astronomy Camera... $454.95
QHY5III178M/C uses the new 6.0 Megapixel IMX178 STARVIS Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS sensor. Available in both color and monochrome. With its small 2.4um pixels and 1/1.8-inch sensor size, the monochrome QHY5III178M is a superb guiding camera due to its advantages in resolution and wide FOV, plus its extraordinary sensitivity due to the STARVIS Exmore sensor. (STARVIS is Sony’s designation for sensors that can record real time video in starlight). Output is 50 FPS at full resolution and up to 190 FPS at selected ROI.

QHYCCD QHY183C (Color) Astronomy Cooled Ca... $910.00
QHY183 is a model designed for astrophotography beginners. It exhibits excellent sensitivity and low noise, with the back illuminated 183 having higher sensitivity and somewhat higher resolution. It is well suited to planetary and deep-space imaging particularly when mated with the CFW3 filter wheel. This model has two-stage thermal electric cooling of the sensor to about minus 40 degrees C below ambient for maximum reduction of dark current noise in long exposures. Description QHY183 incorporates QHY’s Anti-Amp Glow technology to significantly reduce typical CMOS amplifier glow to a minimum, allowing excellent calibration by subtracting a dark frame. QHY183 utilizes the...

QHYCCD QHY268C (Color) Astronomy Cooled Ca... $2,666.00
With the advantage of low readout noise and high-speed readout, CMOS technology has revolutionized astronomical imaging. A monochrome, back-illuminated, high-sensitivity, astronomical imaging camera is the ideal choice for astro-imagers. Description The QHY268M/C is a new generation of back-illuminated CMOS cameras with true 16-bit A/D and 3.76um pixels. This new Sony sensor is an ideal CMOS sensor exhibiting no amplifer glow. 16-bit A/D gives high resolution sampling of the whole full well range. Digitizing 0-65535 levels yields a smooth image with continuous gradation of greyscale levels. The QHY268M/C is a cooled, back-illuminated, CMOS camera based on the Sony IMX571 sensor with...

QHYCCD QHY Mini Guide Scope (QHYMGS) $164.95
When the pixels of a guide camera becomes small and QE becomes high, you may not need a big guide scope, smaller pixels can detect the guide error in a shorter focal length. And, when the focal length is reduced, the FOV becomes larger, so it is easier to find bright guide stars. Description QHYCCD’s new miniGuideScope is based on just this idea. The miniGuideScope is a 30mm f/4.3 (130mm FL) ultra-small telescope. It has no complex focal adjust system. Just rotate the front of the OTA and it provides fine focal adjustment. Once focus is achieved, the tube can...
