The QHY600-PH Pro Kit 2 includes the following items:
The QHY 600-PH Photographic Short Backfocus version is a full frame CMOS cooled astronomy camera containing the monochrome version of the Sony IMX455, a revolutionary full-frame back illuminated sensor which has a QE above 87% and true 16-bit A/D.
This translates to a dynamic range of 14 stops for vibrant and natural colours, even for faint or dark nebulae. The pixels have a size of 3.76 µm which is an excellent value for telescopes with different focal lengths.
The large sensor has a resolution of more than 61 Megapixels allowing to crop, scale and print the frames in large formats.
The camera has a two-stage TEC cooling system with full anti-dew technology that brings the temperature of the sensor 35C° below ambient for low noise imaging, even in warm climates. The QHY 600-PH has zero amplifier glow no matter how long the exposure is.
The QHY CFW3 Large is a motorized filter wheel designed for 7 filters with a size of 2" and 7 unmounted filters with a diameter of 50mm.
It uses a high quality ultra-thin hybrid stepper motor that compared to standard electrical motors, is more precise as it has a smaller stepper angle. The motor is enclosed to prevent dust from entering, thus improving reliability and the durability of the motor. The QHYCFW3 main body is CNC machined from a single piece of aluminium, sandblasted and anodized for a high quality finish.
Chroma Technology Corp. manufactures the highest quality astronomy filters on the market with durable, sputtered hard coatings using single substrates of the best glass, eliminating the need for laminations. All primary filter coatings are applied on the front surface and anti-reflection coatings on the rear surface to prevent ghosting and to maximize transmission.
Highly precise and accurate, the passbands of these filters remain spectrally stable and do not drift in response to extreme temperature fluctuations or changes in humidity.
