QHY 290M Cooled CMOS Imaging Camera - Monochrome
- QHYCCD uses Sony STARVIS Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS sensor, able to even capture very dim stars
- Capture magnitude 9 stars when connected with a 50mm F1.4 C-mount lens
- Anti-dew technology to keep the camera dry
- Built-in 128MB DDRII image buffer which safeguards against unexpected drops in data transmission
- Anti-amp light control
- Super fast USB3.0 interface
- Both planetary and deep sky imaging
- Ideal video astronomy camera due to back illumination and low readout noise
One of the most important feature on this camera is that it is cooled, which makes it perfect for long exposure sessions. The QHY290M has the capacity to cool 40ºC below ambient. Incorporated with anti-dew technology, the CMOS chamber 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 both planetary and deep-sky imaging, made with Sony IMX290 colour 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.
Built-in 4 pins filter wheel connector as well as a 6 pins RJ11 guiding port.
Amp-glow suppression technology to support a clearer background in long exposure sessions. This is particularly good for users who are looking to do deep sky imaging.
