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.
The QHY11 Colour has limited availablity… please contact Bernard for details 😀

Terry Hancock is using QHY11 to capture many magnificent wide-angle deep sky images.
These images show perfectly the complexity of nebulea and galaxies in great detail.
Terry’s works have created a sight-seeing tour of the deep space, which you can see through his telescope and camera .

The QHY21, QHY22 and QHY23 cameras feature Sony’s latest high sensitivity ExviewII CCD sensors: ICX674, ICX694 and ICX814.
These sensors has very high QE (close to 80%) and very low thermal noise.
With dual stage TEC cooling technology these cameras can achieve temperatures 45C below ambient. By comparison with the competition, the 10 to 15C of extra cooling helps ensure great results, even on hot summer nights!
