QHY QHY23 Monochrome ICX-814 Camera

If you are looking for a camera that offers low read noise and high QE, then look no further!

This QHY23 CCD Imaging Camera has the Sony's high-sensitivity EXview HAD CCD II ICX694 sensor. This sensor has a high peak QE, 79%, and a very low thermal noise. With these two qualities and the camera's dual stage TE cooling technology, give this QHY camera great astroimaging capabilities.The typical read noise of this QHY23 Monochrome camera of around 5 electrons is a definite highlight. For those looking to image faint deep sky objects or use narrowband filters, then this low read noise will help you achieve better images with multiple frames stacked. QHY has designed the camera to have relatively small pixels. This means that these cameras give higher detailed results when using smaller telescopes. The camera body of the QHY QHY23 camera gives full moisture control. This includes an air-proof CCD chamber with a silicon gel tube socket and a chamber optical window heater.
