Description

The QHY10 is a compact and light weight one shot colour APS size CCD camera.

With Super HAD technology, a peltier cooling system and active cooling, dark noise is extremely low.

The 6.05um*6.05um pixel size is ideal for high resolution and high sensitivity deep sky imaging.

A 400g weight and 63mm diameter make QHY10 eminently suitable for Hyper Star Imaging.

The QHY10 is based on QHYCCDs high speed and low readout noise CCD technology.

New Features

  1. An improved CCD chamber with connection provided for a desiccant tube system . A removable Silica gel tube can be connected to the CCD chamber to absorb moisture. For Hyperstar imaging the tube can be temporarily removed and replaced later for storage.
  2. Fully airproof CCD chamber.
  3. A CCD center and tilt adjustment ring (Patent protected), allows easy CCD center and tilt adjustment by the user.
  4. An improved, thicker, optical window to prevent moisture forming on it.
