This kit from QHY combines the 600 Monochrome Photographic camera with a CFW3L large Filter Wheel. Available with either the standard QHY600M-PH model or the short back-focus SBFL model.

For more information on component parts, see individual pages for the camera and filter wheel.

For QHY600, the match we recommend is CFW3L and OAGM. If you have special requirement for short back focal length, like using Canon EF Lens (44.1mm BFL), Nikon F Lens (46.5mm), or using 55mm MPCC with both CFW and OAG, we recommend QHY600 SBFL version as the only choice.

Model BFL Consumed Filters Supported
QHY600M PH/Lite 17.5mm 7 position


2inch mounted/50mm unmounted

QHY600M SBFL 12.5mm
CFW3L 21.5mm


Here are the combo we recommend for the QHYCCD Astronomy Camera QHY600. Compared with purchasing them seperately, you can get a discount about 5% off for the combo.

16-bit (0-65535 levels) at 1X1 binning


18-bit at 2X2, 19-bit at 3X3, 20-bit at 4X4 software binning

*QHY600 uses the software digital binning for 2*2binning. With digital sum, 2*2binning will be four 16-bit summed then it is 18-bit.

Exposure Time Range 40us – 3600sec
Unity Gain* 25 (Extended Full Well Mode) *


*With the improvement of the CMOS technology, the 16bit CMOS camera has been released, like QHY600/268/411/461. For these cameras, even in lowest gain it has beyond the requirement of unit gain (less than 1e/ADU due to sufficient samples) So you can directly set gain 0 as start. Please note QHY600/268C/411/461 has extend full well mode. In this mode you still need to find out the unit gain position.
