Back-illuminated sensors have always been synonymous with high sensitivity and high quantum efficiency. Back-illuminated imaging architecture orients the metal wiring behind the photo-cathode layer, reducing the light reflection caused by passing through the wiring layer. Back-illuminated CCDs have been widely used in professional astronomical research, but the substantially high costs have kept them away from amateur astronomy. The new QHY183C back-illuminated CMOS camera not only gives the same high sensitivity as a back-illuminated CCD, but also has readout noise as low as 1 electron. It is an outstandingly good value for the money with dream performance.
20 Mega Pixels
Twenty mega pixels, 2.4 micrometers pixel size makes the most out of the fine detail available to your telescope. Full resolution real-time output at 15 frames per second, highly suitable for EAA (Electronically Assisted Astronomy) real-time deep space observation and lucky imaging photography. By short-time exposure and massive superpositioning (stacking), you can make use of a large telescopes' advantage of high resolution, reducing the influence of atmospheric seeing. Short-time exposures can also lower the requirement for tracking accuracy, giving a higher probability of capturing a good image without fancy guiding equipment.
Glow Suppression Function
With the elaborate and heroic effort made by QHYCCD team, the incredible innovation of CMOS glow suppression function largely diminishes the effects of amplifier glow in long exposures.
128MB DDR Memory
Built-in high speed DDR memory, enables the buffering of image data and avoids loss of frames. Suitable for low-speed PCs.
4K HD Video Support
Support for 4096x2160 25FPS 4K HD 1:1 video output
Built-in anti-fogging heating plate, effectively keeps the optic window from fogging.
