The QHY10 is the perfect camera for those searching for a color CCD with large (comparable to the APS-C or DX formats DSLRs) and high quality sensor for highest levels astrophotography. The color camera makes astrophotography easier since it doesn't require the use of many filters (in case of light pollution we only recommend a LPS filter). Compared to cheaper QHY8L, the QHY10 CCD camera provides a sensor with an almost double full-well capacity that allows the sensor an higher dynamic range: so you can shot longer exposition without saturating the signal. This leads to better color fidelity and more pointful stars. All of it is associated to a precise and powerful cooling and stabilization system with double Peltier cell (cooling down to -40°C with respect to the external ambient temperature), an advanced electronic 16 bits A/D converter and a compact and lightweight body.
Technical comment by Filippo: "QHY10 CCD camera is the best CCD color camera with a price within 2000 euros. The sensor's high quality lets you shot images that you can easily process: also if you use the most advanced processing tecniques, the signal keeps clean, with precise and accurate colors".
