I have been using a QHY8 astro camera for many years now. This has been an excellent camera with -40C deg cooling, 24x16mm chip, 6 megapixels.
However it has recently lost most of its sensitivity so it appears time to upgrade.

I am sure that there are a lot of modern astro cameras of similar but no doubt improved specs now available.

So I am looking for suggestions of a suitable replacement for the QHY8.

QHY247 would be my choice if you're looking for another APS-C.
