QHY 23 Monochrome 9.2MP CCD Camera

The QHY 23 monochrome camera includes a medium format, high resolution 'Exview' CCD camera sensor, with over 9.2 million 3.69um square pixels in a 15.98 diagonal array. With a very high QE of 77%, the QHY 23 is one of the most sensitive cameras on the market today. Attach an optional autoguider to the ST-4 opto-isolated guide port. The camera uses a single USB cable for image capture and color wheel control to keep your set-up tidy and trouble free. The QHY 23 is also very suitable for manufacturing, medical and scientific purposes with external trigger inputs. Just like all of the other QHY cooled cameras, the 23 uses two-stage TEC cooling. The QHY23 has typical -45C delta T from ambient.
