Qhy8

Hi All,

I am seriously thinking of getting a QHY8 camera. This seems like a lot of camera for 2600AUD.

6 megapixels one shot colour
2 stage cooling

any thoughts on this camera

Paul

Best place for that sort of info is at the forum at QHY.

Go here http://www.qhyccd.com/ccdbbs/ and look for yourself and check out the images that beginers and pro's alike are churning out.
Theres a swag of info and people to ask for.

I wont put a spin on anything until you ask some specific questions.
But the noise level is so low, that dark frames are not required for most sessions. Sensitivity or QE is around 60%, good backup of drivers and support from third party programmers, oops, started the spin..
