Isn't that just another 5 x 2" wheel?

It's been pretty wet down here in ozzie for a long time but here's an image.

6188 + 6164 Narrowband.

12" modified GSO Newt, EQ8, Atik 11002, OAG/Qhy5L ii, ASA 3" corrector.

Add them where? In the AD. I didn't think you could dump charges into a readout pixel like a ccd. If they are averaged, why bother?

I don't understand how this will work.
It''s not a ccd so it has to be done on the other side of the A/D converter.
I see a register to turn it on but how does it work?

Can you clarify what binning in this sensor does please.

I'm guessing it sends the additive digital data from 4 pixels to the A/D where as a CCD dumps the data into a readout pixel first.

I don't see the difference?

The IC8300 does not return a search result.
I'm guessing it's just another 8300 chip in a different box.
Sort of flogging a dead horse there aren't you?

It's almost 12 months since this new wheel was announced -> http://qhyccd.com/ccdbbs/index.php?topic=3371

Is there any more news, drawings, measurements or even an ETA ?

Yep. You need the qhy cal software to rotate the wheel first up.

There is an M54 Female to M42 male adapter for the wheel .. QHY stock it .. I thought it came with the wheel ?

Then something like this -> http://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p210_Visual-Back-T2-to-1-25----with-additional-T2-male-thread---long.html

You can do anything with the right adapters :)

Ok, now I see, the optic windows comes out and these adapters screw in.
I'll see if Theo has any on hand here.

Ok now I'm confused. I need a 1.25" extension, the camera is too short.

As far as I know a CS-thread and a C-thread are both 25mm. This camera is 22mm without the retaining ring and 20mm with it.

What thread is on the extender?

Hi,  Where can I get one of these or, what thread is in the nose of the QHY5L II so I can make one. I was stupid enough to order a c-thread to 1.25" nose locally and it won't fit.

What I need is to extend length without a shoulder.

What's wrong with the qhy22?
Way more sensitive than either of those old cameras.

What do you get if you turn the cooler off?
I think removing the 12v supply will turn the cooler off.
