QHY 9 Monochrome CCD Camera w/ 7-Position Ultra Slim 36mm Filter Wheel


The QHY9 is a classic monochrome CCD camera that uses the celebrated 8.6 mega pixel Kodak KAF8300 sensor. This sensor sports excellent QE for imaging deep sky objects. Peak QE is 56% with 48% QE in H-Alpha. 4/3" size makes it ideal for the majority of telescope models.

Two-stage TEC and standard delta T is -50ºC below ambient. This provides superior thermal noise control. When contrasting the QHY9 with cameras that have -25 or -30ºC cooling, you'll find the QHY9 produces a clearer image with very long exposure time even in the hottest summers or coldest winters.

The QHY9 features very low readout noise. It also has a round design, making it well-suited for Hyperstars. QHY9 is a round design and very suitable for Hyperstars.
