    The IC8300 is incorporated with a built-in ARM system, which means users can use it without a computer. The WIFI interface allows wireless control and remote login. By appropriate software, users are able to connect to their whole imaging system, including the equatorial mount, electric focuser and the auto-guider.

    The camera also includes two serial ports, a USB host interface, a 4pin filter wheel interface.

    Other than the stand-alone mode, users can connect this camera to the computer as an ordinary astronomical camera via a USB cable.

    Being the world's first open source standalone astronomy cooled deep sky camera and world's first camera with full internet connection via WIFI, this QHY IC8300 camera certainly does not overlook its quality.

    IC8300 is a classic monochrome camera constructed with the very popular 8.6MP KAF8300 CCD sensor. This sensor has a great quantum efficiency for deep-sky imaging. It has two stage TE cooling and typical delta-T is -45c below ambient. There is a built-in heating plate and an external drying interface which effectively combat condensation at low temperatures. This camera also has very low thermal noise as well as low readout noise.
