Waiting List

  • The QXY11 is a small camera with a big sensor! It uses a full 35mm size KAI-11002 monochrome chip by TrueSense...a sensor that is used frequently on cameras costing significantly more than the QHY11!
  • The KAI-11002 uses 9 micron square pixels and has an active pixel array of 4032 x 2688.
  • The QXY 11 is a good match for a HyperStar.
  • Two-stage TEC cooling delivers temperatures of up to -45ÂșC above ambient, for low noise even on warm nights.


QHY KAI-11002 Cooled Monochrome CCD Camera

The QHY11 is a very small camera with a nice big sensor! This 11 megapixel camera sports a full frame 36mm x 24mm chip and its a popular one...the TrueSense (aka Kodak) KAI-11002. The pixel size of 9um offers you very sharp stars and a wide field of view in many of today's most popular telescopes.

Just like all of the other QHY cooled cameras, the 11 uses two-stage TEC cooling. The QHY11 has typical -45C delta T from ambient, which exceeds most other cameras based on the KAI-11002 or KAI-11000 sensor. You can get lower thermal noise and less hot pixels with this diminutive QHY camera.
