pixel array:                      1280*960
pixel size                         3.75um square
cooling:                           max -45C below ambinet with two stage TEC
temperature regular:       Yes
ADC depth:                     12bit/8bit
max frame rate:               30fps@1280*960 (8bit)  15fps@1280*960(12bit)
Support ROI:                   44fps@1024*768  75fps@800*600 106fps@640*480  200fps@320*240
Guide port                        Yes
Telesocpe Interface:         1.25inch
Active FAN:                       Yes
Exposure time:                 20us-1800sec
Color/Mono version:         Both Available
Readout Noise:                 minimum 2e @highest analog gain    4e at middle analog gain
FullWell:                            18ke @ minimum analog gain

               We will make the user testing very soon. Please follow QHYCCD facebook/twitter for the news.

That's a great news! I'm very anxious to test it

Hi QHY fans,
it looks very good. Is the cam with USB2 or USB3 Interface?  This because USB3 is now state of the art.
With best regards
Peter

Hello,
         The beta test production is the USB2 interface.

         We will consider the USB3.0 interface in serious.


Best regards,

Wow, this is a mini mini mini deepksy cam, very correctly named

mini fan that is able to dissipate heat from the peltier ?, there any darks test image before and after cooling?

Very interesting :) I was thinking about something cooled for tricky methane band or Uranus/Neptune imaging.

As it's -35deg cooled - did you evaluated e2v EV76C660 sensor? It's insanely EPI-doped so it has insane dark current, so with such strong cooling it could became actually usable :) It's advantage is the superior QE due to that doping, noticeably in IR.

Very Nice!

Is the cooling regulated?

Two month before we rent a camera using EV76C660 sensor and did a compare with QHY5L-II-M.
Maybe something is wrong. it looks EV76C660's results is not good as QHY5L-II-M. 

I need to rent it again to have a compare again.

Best regards,

Yes, those e2v sensors are strange in behavior and there is no clear answer how real their sensitivity is.

I'm excited to test this.  So which sensor is it?

Hi,
How much will be the power consumption with the TEC ?

How we fight against humidity ?

The test is already started? because we do not see any images.

May have participated in the test ?

Best Regards
