Revolution Imager R2 fits a standard 1.25″ focuser and lets you see much fainter objects than the human eye ever could. This is a powerful and complete stand alone system, with 7″ colour monitor, R2 imager, advanced multi-part 1.25″ adapter and focal reducer system, IR block filter plus (NEW) 5v – 12v converter cable and (NEW) USB Video Grabber.
Due to restrictions on shipping Lithium Ion batteries we now supply a 5v to 12v converter cable, which allows you to power the imager from a standard 2A+ USB mobile ‘phone charger or power bank. Most users will already have these but a standard 12 volt power supply, such as those used for many mounts and cameras will also work.
QHY367C uses the IMX094 full frame 36megapixel, 14bit CMOS sensor. This sensor is also used in the D810A camera. 3.2e readout noise at lowest gain and 2.4e readout noise at unity gain. Dynamic range is > 14 Stops.
