" Hello,

        When our codes finished. I think you can send to our oversea service center to do this upgrade. Maybe faster than send back China.

Best regards,

Hello Dr Qiu,
Do you think the code is finished now and that it would be possible to update my QHY42 camera ?
Thank you very much in advance for your answer

Hi,

We have finished the code. Now we will ensure the oversea center can complete the update process. When we affirm it we will post you the information as soon as possible.

Best Wishes!

My camera has been finally upgraded from QHY42 to QHY42 PRO
Thank you to QHYCCD and especially to Jan Soldan for having successfully done it (for free !)
The very good surprise (additionally to the specification of QHYCCD) is that the software works perfectly and all bugs have been removed (including in ASCOM driver which supports the dual mode - STD and HDR)
Single frame support (very important for me) works perfectly
Thank you to all

I acquired this camera several months ago and works great.

I fully recommend it for scientific works, is easy to reach magnitude 19-20 under a very light polluted sky in a few minutes, with a 12" telescope and stacking short exposures (~5 seconds).

As example, a mag ~18 NEO is clearly visible stacking 16 images of 5 seconds:



or a supernova of mag ~19 in a stack of ~10 minutes:



Kind regards.
