IMX294 CMOS Board for QHY294C COLDMOS

Hello,

         This is the QHY294C BSI sensor. We are improving the amp glow performance of it. The sensor is 10mp 4/3inch color BSI sensor.

Best regards,

Hi Qiu,

Great new for us ! Many thanks !  ;)

For sure this sensor is a good choice for a multi-purpose color camera. And if you succeed to reduce amp glow, we will be near perfection.

Any info about price ?

If you are searching for beta-testers for a cooled version, please let me know...  ;D

Hi Qiu,

An other important question : IMX294CJK has a specific arangement of pixels.
Not classical 2x2 RGGB but a 4x4 matrix :

RRGG
RRGG
GGBB
GGBB

So how it works for debayering such kind of images ?
Is it included in drivers ? Or does it has to be supported by Firecapture and Sharcap ?

Many thanks.

Hello Alberic,


          The ANTI-AMP light design is a very careful operation and it need be patient. But in order to achieve the best status we need to get this to the best status then release the camera, this is to give our user the best performance of the CMOS sensor and which is very important for astronomy using.,

Hi Qiu

I am an astrophotographer in Europe (France) where I take care of a famous observatory https://www.astroqueyras.com/
I do camera tests for manufacturers, do you think of using Beta tester for your new products
If so I would be very interested to test your new camera.

@Best regards
Jacques

Hello,

      For color cmos, We would like to test our new QHY247C (Currently in Stock)and the coming QHY294C (about the end of this year).

      Since QHY247C is zero amplifier glow. We would like to suggest you to try this first? For QHY294C we still need time to optimize the performance of it.


Best regards,
Qiu Hongyun

 Hello,

Can you tell me the address of a dealer, I can not find on the net

Do you sell the QHY 247 directly ???

Best regards,
Jacques

Hello Qui

The new QHY294 sounds like it will be a winner CMOS camera esp. for near real-time observing or EAA + will make a great OSC imaging camera. I am seriously looking at getting one of these cameras and know that ZWO has already their model out but I like the built quality of QHY. I am also looking seriously at the new upcoming QHY183 mono CMOS camera for some narrowband high resolution imaging. I have beta tested for a few companies including Mallincam (for 8 years) and Starlightxpress. If you need a very good beta tester for these two cameras or others, please let me know via email. I live just outside of Toronto, Canada. Thank you Qui
