QHY10 - 10.0 megapixel cooled aps-c color ccd camera
The QHY10 is an APS-C size cooled one-shot color CCD camera with SONY's ICX493AQA Sensor. It has 10 megapixels and the pixel size is 6.05*6.05um.
Besides the very low thermal noise provided by Sony's SuperHAD technology, this sensor has a high fullwell feature. Even in a 6.05um square pixel, it has 45ke fullwell, which is almost double that of the ICX413 with 7.8um square pixel and almost double that of the color 8300 sensors with 5.4um square pixel. The big fullwell has the advantage of higher dynamic range. It brings better colors and smaller star point, as you can expose longer without saturating the sensor.
The QHY10 is a cooled CCD camera that uses two stage TEC. It can get to -40C delta T below ambient temperature. Combining QHYCCD's cooling technology and SONY's SuperHAD technology, the QHY10 gives the user a clean and low noise image even in a very long exposure.
The QHY10 comes with a clip for USB and power cables, making the connection solid.
Comparing the QHY10 to the popular KAF8300C camera, QHY10 has bigger sensor size, bigger pixel size, more pixels, bigger fullwell, lower thermal noise and readout noise, and a more compact camera size. It has an electric shutter and a 2-stage TEC. Don't hesitate - get an affordable price of QHY10 right now!
