Product Description

QHY290 uses SONY STARVIS Exmor R backside illuminated CMOS sensor. The Starvis meets the criteria of revealing very dim stars at realtime video rate. QHY290 can capture magnitude 9 stars when connected with a 50mm f/1.4 C-mount lens. To compare with the IMX236 sensor, it has twice the sensitivity in visible light and three times more in near infrared wavelength. 

QHY290 has ultra-low readout noise. The backside illuminated sensor and low readout noise make this camera an ideal video astronomy camera.  The 2.9um small pixel size is also ideal for lucky imaging to achieve high resolution sampling.

QHY290 has USB3.0 super speed interface and 135 FPS at full HD output. The camera has 10/12bit analog-digital converter (ADC) and it outputs 8 bits images or 12 bits images at user's command.

QHYCCD Small COLDMOS Series Standard Features

QHYCCD Small COLDMOS camera series consists of cooled camera using state of the art CMOS sensor of 1 inch or smaller. Equipped with Sony Exmor or ExmorR CMOS sensor and USB3.0 interface, the QHYCCD Small COLDMOS series provides you an ultra sensitive and high frame rate photography experience. These unique capabilities in compact form factor allows astrophotographers from all levels to enjoy high quality planetary and deep sky imaging.

A built-in 4 pins filter wheel connector allows you to use QHYCCD filter wheel directly without extra connection needed. A 6 pins guiding port is also provided shall you want to use this as an autoguider, particularly for long focal length imaging scope OAG setup.

QHY's advanced amp-glow suppression technology is implemented in QHY290 to provide a clean background for long exposure astrophotography, an essential feature for any users planning to do deep sky imaging.
