Quick Overview

The QHYCCD COLDMOS QHY178M monochrome camera uses a 6 megapixel resolution CMOS sensor with 8,9mm diagonal and cooling up to -40°C. Thanks to small dimensions pixel (2.4 micron) it's perfect for high resolution planetary and lunar imaging (using a DDRII 128MB buffer memory it allows you to record up to 50 fps in full resolution 3072 x 2048) but, having a powerful cooling system, it can be used as a great camera for deep-sky objects (with long exposition times) like galaxies, nebulas and star clusters.

6 mega pixel resolution

QHYCCD COLDMOS QHY178M monochrome 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.




Cooling and anti-fog system

The QHY178M 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.



128MB integrated memory

Thanks to development work of QHYCCD, the QHY178M 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.
