    The QHY8L-PH is a 6 Megapixel camera with an APS-C size SONY CCD sensor. CCD sensors are intended for much longer exposures than their CMOS equivalents, enabling much greater response for the dimmest subjects.

    SONY's CCD sensors are noted for their low thermal noise. This is reduced even more in the QHY8L-PH by 2-stage TE cooling and thermal construction design. The QHY8L is able to cool to 40°C below the ambient temperature. This results in the production of very clean images even in exposures of 30 minutes to one hour.

    The QHY8L-PH also has very low read noise, typically 6 or 7e-. In a dark site it offers the user a simple and easy way to capture deep sky objects in full colour without filters. This results also in simpler post-processing work.

    The QHY8L-PH camera body has a diameter of only 63mm only, making it suited for Hyperstar or RASA imaging.
