The QHY11 Colour is a compact full frame camera.

It uses the TrueSense KAI11002 CCD sensor and offers a big image circle.

The 11mega pixels and 9um pixel sensor offers you very sharp star and wide FOV.

QHY11 is typically -45C delta T from ambient.

This delta T exceeds most other cameras based on the KAI11002 or KAI11000. You get lower thermal noise and fewer hot pixels with this camera.

QHY11’s small round case design allow it be installed in the the Hyperstar System or in the primary focus plane. With more and more new big image circle Schmidt camera come out,  QHY11 is your right choice for such systems.

We supply a cable clip which makes the USB port to power socket more secure.
