QHY9 Monochrome CCD Camera with KAF-8300 Sensor
with Stand-Alone 5 Position 50mm Filter Wheel

If you're looking for a classic monochrome camera with a tried-and-true sensor, check out the QHY9! This lightweight, cooled camera uses the super popular Kodak KAF-8300 full frame sensor. Its 4/3 format makes the KAF-8300 a great choice for a wide range of telescopes, and the peak quantum efficiency of 56% (and 48% in Ha) is perfect for deep sky.

The QHY9 has two-stage regulated TEC cooling that can reach -50C below ambient for outstanding thermal noise control. Other features include a built-in heater that helps keep dew from forming on the sensor window, a mechanical shutter, and a built-in ST-4 style guide port. The small size and weight of the camera also makes the QHY9 a nice choice for HyperStar imaging.

Included QHY Medium Filter Wheel - 5 Position for 50mm Filters

QHY has included their motorized 5-position color filter wheel for 2" or 50mm unmounted filters as part of this package. A wide range of filters are available separately. The QHY Medium CFW has a gear driven disk and will also accept an optional carousel that holds up to seven 36mm unmounted filters.
