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.

Product QuestionsHow long is the exposure time of this camera?
Does it have a global or rolling shutter?
Is the camera supporting Labview?Question by: Theresa Sperk on Nov 24, 2015 5:41:00 AMThe manufacturer does not state a maximum exposure time, but given the well depth on the 814 sensor exposures of 30 minutes should be possible under dark skies with medium to long f/ratio scopes or with narrowband filters.
This sensor has a global shutter.
QHY does not note Labview support on their website, so this is unknown. ASCOM is fully supported.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Dec 1, 2015 11:59:00 AM
