QHY 183M Cooled CMOS Astronomy Camera - Monochrome
1 inch format cooled CMOS Astro Imaging camera, capable of 4K Ultra-HD video output.
This camera is suited to medium field deep-sky astro imaging with long exposures.
The especially small (2.4µm) pixel size means this camera is also well-suited to planetary imaging.
The QHY183M monochrome astro imaging camera is an excellent all-round choice for filter-based lunar, planetary and deep-sky astrophotography. Its very small (2.4µm) pixels are well-suited to very small targets such as planets, but its 1" sized sensor can give you a wide enough field of view for lunar imaging or some deep-space objects.
The TEC cooling in the camera means you can get the long exposures that narrowband imaging requires while avoiding the build-up of noise or amp glow.
