QHY165C has the second largest sensor among QHYCCD Medium COLDMOS series, offering 16 megapixels on a APS-C size colour CMOS sensor. The CMOS sensor has 4.8µm pixel size and 12 bit ADC. QHY165C is a lite-version of its bigger brother QHY168C which has 14 bit ADC.
Notable features include 128MB DDR-II image buffer and 35C delta cooling capability with full anti-dew solution.
128MB DDR Buffer
As a member of QHYCCD's high pixel counts CMOS camera, QHY163M/C has a built-in 128MB DDRII image buffer. The generous buffer helps facilitating large image transfer, preventing frame lost after long exposure while transferring and allows the camera to run smoothly when used with low performance computer or USB2.0 port.
Full Anti-Dew Solution
With more than ten years of experience in cooled CCD camera design, QHYCCD applies the fully anti-dew technology to the QHY163 including the fully air proof CMOS chamber with silicon gel tube socket and CMOS window heater. With these technologies you do not need to worry about the dew formed on both CMOS sensor and the optics window, even in a high humidity environment.
