QHYCCD QHY163M monochrome camera


The QHYCCD QHY163M monochrome camera uses a 16 megapixel resolution CMOS sensor with 22mm diagonal and cooling up to -40°C. Thanks to the large sensor size and cooling system, it can be used as a great camera for deep-sky objects (with long shutter time) but thanks to the small size pixels dimensions and integrated DDRII 128MB buffer memory it allows you to record up to 22.5 fps in full resolution (4656 x 3522) for fantastic planetary and lunar images at high magnification!

16 mega pixel resolution

QHYCCD QHY163M camera has a big 22.1mm diagonal CMOS monochrome sensor with 16 mega pixel resolution (4656 x 3522). USB3.0 interface, very low readout noise, Peltier cell cooling system (maxium delta T is -40 below ambient) and 12bit ADC converter makes this camera a great choice for people searching for a all-in-one system capable of recording great pictures both of deep-sky (galaxies, nebula and star clusters) and planetary (planets, Moon) objects.



Cooling and anti-fog system

The QHY163M camera has an efficient cooling system with two-stage Peltier cell that allows you to lower the temperature of the sensor down to -40°C above the ambient temperature. Furthermore, the integrated heating plate in the camera prevents fogging of the optical window in front of the sensor even in conditions of high humidity.
