Starting Price: $13,850.00
Price as Configured: $13,850.00
Brand: QHYCCD / SKU: QHY-42UV (110030)
The QHY42PRO-BSI uses the Gsense400 Scientific CMOS sensor with extraordinary 95% peak QE, 79% UV QE, and very good NIR response, plus an extremely low read noise of 1.7e-. The QHY42 has relatively large 11um pixels in a 2k x 2k array. The sensor size is 22.5mm x 22.5mm yielding a good field of view even at longer focal lengths. This camera is ideal for astronomical and biological science research. QHYCCD also supplies the QHY42PRO-FSI version.
