Good news! The QHY600 Professional version will be released in a few months. Purchase this early bird special! This early bird version of the camera is mechanically built just as the professional version. The advanced features will be deactivated but all the features of the Photographic version will be active. When QHY releases the Professional version, simply upgrade by purchasing the difference in price between the photographic and professional version and QHY can activate features remotely! It is that simple!

QHYCCD QHY600 Cooled Monochrome CMOS Camera

Ultra High Resolution

60 Megapixels

Full Frame

The QHY600 uses the latest SONY back-illuminated sensor, the IMX455, a full frame (35mm format) sensor with 3.76um pixels and native 16-bit A/D. This sensor is available in both monochrome and color versions. The sensor size is 36mm x 24mm. Ultra low dark noise.

16BIT

Native 16-biT ADC

65536 Levels

The QHY600 is cooled CMOS camera with native 16-bit A/D on-chip. The output is real 16-bits with 65536 levels. Compared to 12-bit and 14-bit A/D, a 16-bit A/D yields higher sample resolution and the system gain will be less than 1e-/ADU with no sample error noise and very low read noise.

Great Full Well

51ke- to 80ke- at 3.76um

>400ke- binned

One benefit of the back-illuminated CMOS structure is improved full well capacity. This is particularly helpful for sensors with small pixels. Even with unbinned, 3.76um pixels, the QHY600 has a full well capacity of 49ke-. When binned 2x2 to 7.5um the full well is 196ke- and when binned 3x3 to 11um the full well is 441ke-.

Breakthrough Low Read Noise

1.0e to 3.7e

The QHY600 has only 1.0 electron of read noise at high gain and 4FPS high readout speed. One electron of read noise means the camera can achieve a SNR>3 at only 4 to 6 photons. This is perfect performance when conditions are photon limited, i.e., short exposures, narrow band imaging, etc., making this large area sensor ideal for sky surveys and time domain astronomy.
