Camera Luna-QHY 8L: CCD with accesories

QHY8L is a compact and light weight one shot APS size CCD camera.


With Super HAD technology and its two stage cooling system and the active cooling fan the dark noise of QHY8L is extremely low. The 6.05um*6.05um pixel size is idea for high resolution and high sensitivity deep sky imaging. The 400g weight and 63mm diameter make QHY8L very suitable for Hyper Star Imaging. The QHY8L is based on QHYCCD's high speed and low readout CCD technology. It will produce high SNR imaging for deep sky imaging.
