Here being packaged alongside a perfectly sized five position filter wheel, this package includes almost everything you'd need to get started with an astro-photography session- all you'd be left needing would be the filters for the filter wheel, a power supply, and a computer to control it from!
The QHY9 boasts a high quality full frame sensor that has a peak Quantum Efficiency of 58% and an effective pixel array of 3358*2536, or 8.6mega pixels. It's small size of just 4/3" makes it just perfect for astro-photography by dint of rendering it ideal for use with most telescope sizes.
