QHY QHY16803A CCD Imaging Camera

QHY's QHY16803A CCD camera is a high sensitivity full frame CCD camera! The well-known 16 megapixel KAF-16801 CCD image sensor has enhancements that target high performance needs. The shutter type is an even illumination mechanical shutter, made for photometric quality darks and flats. It is operated by a direct drive with a very long life.

The 16803A camera has enhanced quantum efficiency for improved DQE at higher spatial frequencies, lower noise for improved contrast in high density areas, and anti-blooming protection to prevent image bleed from over exposure.The sensor uses TRUESENSE Transparent Gate Electrode to improve sensitivity when compared to the use of a standard front side illuminated polysilicon electrode.

For those astrophotographers looking for high quality images, this camera will do the job!

The "A" series stands for "All in One," because this camera includes a built-in filter wheel and supports the large size QHYOAG. The QHYOAG (not included) can be installed on the camera with six screws. It will consume minimum of back focus.

QHY's included filter wheel is a 7 position for 50 mm square filters.

Not only does this camera accept the large QHYOAG and the built-in filter wheel, it also has an internal USB2.0 HUB that gives two USB host ports and a USB to dual RS323 converter.
