The QHY8L is an excellent 6 Megapixel one shot color camera with APS-C sized chip that is very affordable. The QHY8L uses the Sony ICX413AQ CCD sensor with Super Had technology. QHY8-L is the successor to the best-selling model - QHY8. The 7.8um*7.8um pixel size is ideal for high resolution and high sensitivity deep sky imaging. The 400g weight and a 63mm diameter makes the QHY8PRO very suitable for HyperStar Imaging as well. It will produce high SNR color deep sky imaging at a very attractive price point. QHY CCD astronomical camera.

The following conditions are not covered under warranty
- CCD Chips will develop bad columns from time to time. If a defect column should appear after initial use, once the camera is put into operation, it is not considered a defect given that normal image calibration removes bad columns. If the CCD sensor exceeds the warranty period, QHYCCD will replace the CCD sensor at the end user expense
- CCD sensor damaged by static discharge due to improper grounding of AC power supplies.
- Scratch on CCD sensor
- Water damage from exposure to water leaks
- Low CTE columns (if there are two low CTE columns nearby and it cannot be fixed by normal calibration tools, QHYCCD, will replace it)
