    The QHY163M features 16MP 4/3inch CMOS sensor

    One of the most important feature on this camera is that it is cooled, which makes it perfect for long exposure sessions. The QHY163M has the capacity to cool 40ºC below ambient. Incorporated with anti-dew technology, the CMOS chamer is fully sealed and includes a silicon tube socket as well as a heater to avoid dew formation, so that users can enjoy a relaxed imaging session even on damp nights.

    Perfect for deep-sky imaging, made with Sony CMOS sensor and a fast USB.3.0 interface, users can enjoy all levels of sky observation as this camera provides ultra sensitive and high frame rate photography capabilities.

    Equipped with built-in 128MB DDRII image buffer which safeguards against unexpected drops in data transmission.
