The QHY9 CCD Astrophotography Camera comes with the ubiquitous 8.3 MP full-frame KAF-8300 monochrome sensor, with an active array of 3326 x 2504 pixels and a pixel size of 5.4um. The QHY 9 camera body features two-stage TEC cooling to -40 degrees C for great thermal noise control.

Other features include a built-in mechanical shutter, a regulated TEC controller, a USB 2.0 high-speed interface and 16-bit analog-to-digital conversion make this CCD Astrophotography Camera very affordable for the functionality.

The Kodak KAF-8300 CCD sensor 4/3 format allows you to capture wide images in impressively high resolution. Extremely low noise that is a signature of QHY makes imaging processing less of a chore and a high dynamic range ensures you're capturing the most details possible.
