Multiple Mechanical Setup of QHY168C
 
You can install the QHY168C on different OTAs/Camera lenses with the standard or optional accessories that QHYCCD designed. By following this table you can calculate the back focus of each setup and find the item number of your required setup.
 
In order to minimize the halo of bright stars, the QHY168C comes with AR+AR coated optic windows. You need to install a 2-inch IR filter (L filter) on the front of the camera to cut off the IR light. Normally the 2-inch filter can be installed on the M48 thread of the 2inch T ring, but in the case that you do not use a 2-inch T-ring. QHYCCD has an optional 2inch filter holder. You can put the IR filter into this holder and this holder has a M54 female thread to allow you connect to your system like the flat-field corrector etc.
