QHY165C
-- 16mega pixel 12bit APS-C format cooled CMOS Camera

QHY165C is the 12bit low cost version of QHY168C.It use the similar APS-C format, 4.8um pixel size, 16mp CMOS sensor. The only difference to QHY167C is that the 12bit ADC.

QHY165C Performance Chart

It is very important to understand the "unity gain" concept for CMOS Camera and select the suitable gain for capturing. The unity gain is the gain position that the system gain is 1e/ADU. Lower than gain setting, the system gain will exceed 1e/ADU and this will cause the sample noise. The QHY165C unity gain setting is 3750.

For DSO capture. There are two capture methods. One is the traditional long exposure DSO capture method, another is the Lucky imaging method with short exposure and high quantity stacking. For the long exposure, you can use the lower gain to avoid the image get saturated. For lucky image you need to use high gain to reduce the readout noise and avoid the sample noise.
