QHYCCD COLDMOS QHY178C camera has a 8.9mm diagonal CMOS color sensor with 6 mega pixel resolution (3072 x 2048). USB3.0 interface, very low readout noise, Peltier cell cooling system (maxium delta T is -40 below ambient) and 14bit ADC converter makes this camera a great choice for people searching for a all-in-one system capable of recording great pictures both of deep-sky (galaxies, nebula and star clusters) and planetary (planets, Moon) objects.
The QHY178C camera has an efficient cooling system with two-stage Peltier cell that allows you to lower the temperature of the sensor down to -40°C above the ambient temperature. Furthermore, the integrated heating plate in the camera prevents fogging of the optical window in front of the sensor even in conditions of high humidity.
Thanks to development work of QHYCCD, the QHY178C has the built-in 128 MB high-speed DDR memory allows buffering of images to avoid loss of frames, making this camera perfect for use even with low-performances control computer.
