QHY128C  24MP 36mm*24mm Full Size Cooled CMOS Camera

Ultra High Performance
QHY128C has a full frame size 24mega pixels, 14bit CMOS sensor IMX128. This sensor is also used in the D600 camera. It has 4e low readout noise at lowest gain and 2.7e low readout noise at unity gain(system gain = 1e/adu) and 1.8e ultra low readout noise at high gain. QHY367C has a nice dynamic range 14STOPs.

True RAW Imag Output
QHY128C has the same CMOS sensor like D600. Although DSLR has the RAW image output. But typically it is still not the really raw image. You will find the de-noise sign on the raw images from the hot pixel styles. While the QHY128C offers the TRUE RAW IMAGE OUTPUT and it gives original signal and keep the max flexibility of astronomy image process.

Unique Thermal Noise Reduction Technology
Besides the 2-stage TEC, QHYCCD has an unique thermal noise control technology to get the cmos sensor very low thermal noise and make whole 165/168/247/367 product line has much better thermal noise performance than any other competitor.

Zero Amplifier Glow
QHY128C has a rarely capability of zero amplifier glow no matter how long the exposure time is. 

128MB DDRII Image Buffer
QHY128C has 128MByte DDRII image buffer to help the image cache to avoid the risk of frame lost. The data will store in the DDR for first then transfer to computer. It will avoid the USB port too busy when there is more USB3.0 camera connected.

Anti-Dew Technology
With the long time experience on the cooled CCD camera design. QHYCCD has the fully anti-dew technology for both CCD senesor surface glass and the optic window glass. QHY128C has the electric heating board for the CCD glass windows to prevent the window get dew and the silicon gel tube socket design for control the humidity within CMOS chamber.

AR+AR optic widnow
In order to avoid the halo around the bright star. The QHY128C has a AR+AR coating optic window rather than the common IR cut window for OSC color cameras. So you need to use your own IR cut filter on front of the camera. QHYCCD supplies a 2inch filter holder for QHY128C to allow you put this filter.


*Each camera is carefully calibrated in factory with our high precison axis messurement device and gurantte the +-20um error edge to edge tolerance.So that you are no need to consider the tilt adjustment for it.
