The QHY163M camera is an incredible value. It uses a relatively large 4/3-inch, 16 Megapixel CMOS sensor.

The QHY163M has exceptionally low readout noise (as low as 1 electron!), low dark current and two-stage cooling capable of reducing the sensor temperature to -40C below ambient.

The sensor chamber is sealed and the optical window is heated to prevent dew. The camera's interface is USB 3.0 and delivers 23FPS@16 megapixel full resolution output, 30FPS@4K HD video output.

The low read noise capability of the QHY163M and mono sensor is ideal for use with narrowband filters.

Please note: QHY163C has been discounted in 2021
