QHY183M 20MP Back-Illuminated Cooled Monochrome Camera

Starting Price: $999.00
Price as Configured: $999.00
Brand: QHYCCD / SKU: QHY-100105
QHY183 is a model designed for astrophotography beginners. It exhibits excellent sensitivity and low noise, with the back illuminated 183 having higher sensitivity and somewhat higher resolution. It is well suited to planetary and deep-space imaging particularly when mated with the CFW3 filter wheel. This model has two-stage thermal electric cooling of the sensor to about minus 40 degrees C below ambient for maximum reduction of dark current noise in long exposures.

This is the monochrome version.

For cameras with a one-inch or smaller sensor (QHY183M/178/174/290), QHY recommends a combination of CFW3S-US + OAGS (optional);

Model BFL Consumed Filters Supported
QHY183M/174M/550P 17.5mm 7 position

1.25inch mounted /31mm unmounted

CFW3S-US 15.5mm

Back Focal Length (BFL), in the commercial camera field, refers to the design distance from the center of the rear lens element to the surface of the sensor. Generally, the lens will only focus correctly at infinity if the camera’s back focal length meets the standard requirements provided by the lens manufacturer. This is also true for many Multi-Purpose Coma Correctors designed to be used on telescopes before the camera.

Optical system Back focal length required
Typical Multi-Purpose Coma Corrector 55mm – 57.5mm
Canon 35mm lens 44.1mm
Nikon 35mm lens 46.5mm
M42 All-in-one Adapter Pack for QHY183M

Currently QHY only provides the M42 All-in-one pack for QHY183M. Different from kits above, all adapters/spacers in this pack share M42 screws rather than M54. This kit ONLY suits the combo of QHY183M+CFW3S-US/CFW3S-SR+OAGS. Below lists some examples of using the kit (M42 Nikon/Canon adapter not included in this pack)

Note: this kit also suits other cameras with sensors one inch or smaller (e.g., QHY183/178/174/290).
