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.


QHYCCD selected a high quality ultra-thin hybrid stepper motor for the 3rd generation filter wheel design. Compared to the PM stepper motor used in many filter wheels, the hybrid stepper motor has higher precision, smaller step angle, and is more expensive. The motor is enclosed to prevent dust from entering the motor, thus improving reliability and motor life. The direction of filter rotation can be reversed: The filter carousel can be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise to complete the rotation quickly which is very convenient. The overall design is thinner.

Product Description

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.

The QHYCCD 3rd-Generation Color Filter Wheel

New ultra-thin stepper motor drive and fully automatic filter switching revolutionizes overall performance!

New ultra-thin hybrid stepper motor drive.

QHYCCD selected a high quality ultra-thin hybrid stepper motor for the 3rd generation filter wheel design. Compared to the PM stepper motor used in many filter wheels, the hybrid stepper motor has higher precision, smaller step angle, and is more expensive. The motor is enclosed to prevent dust from entering the motor, thus improving reliability and motor life. The direction of filter rotation can be reversed: The filter carousel can be rotated clockwise or counterclockwise to complete the rotation quickly which is very convenient. The overall design is thinner.

Friction drive with zero backlash

Regarding the evolution of the motor drive, our 2nd generation filter wheels used a gear drive while this 3rd generation filter wheel uses a friction drive that results in zero backlash during operation.

USB serial port switch.

The serial port switch can accommodate fast switching between serial communication mode and USB communication mode.

Use the USB port to power the filter wheel.

The filter wheel supports the QHY 4-pin connection control mode. The firmware is open source and compatible with Arduino. The design is compatible with the QHY-OAG (off-axis guide) for the corresponding size.

Beautiful in appearance and ingenious.

The QHYCFW3 main body is cut from a single piece of aluminum by a precision CNC machine. The craftsmanship and finish are exquisite. When you hold the small design, you do not want to put it down!

A specially designed filter carousel allows the installation of unmounted filters of different thicknesses. Mounted Filters below 10 mm thick can be installed and unmounted filters of different thicknesses can also be mounted on the same filter disc. Filter positioning is more precise and faster.
