Product Code:  QSI660i
Brand:  QSI
Resolution:  2758 x 2208
Pixel Size:  4.54µm
Sensor Size:  12.48mm x 9.98mm


The QSI 660 model camera employs a 6.1mp Sony CCD image sensor. This new generation of Sony sensor offers remarkable sensitivity with peak QE of over 75%. The high senstivity, wide dynamic range, dual read rates, low noise performance and internal 5 or 8-position color filter wheels make the QSI 660 ideally suited to a broad range of demanding scientific, medical, astronomical, and industrial imaging applications.

The QSI 660wsg is available with an Integrated Guider Port (IGP) allowing astronomers to guide using the light from the main telescope while picking off the light from the guide star in front of the filters.

The 660 camera system is supported by industry leading astronomy and microscopy image acquisition software plus a full camera control API is available for creating custom Windows or Linux applications.

The 2758x2208 sensor in the QSI 660 provides extremely high resolution with its 4.54µm pixels.

The compact design and internal color filter wheel of the QSI 660ws allows unvignetted, filtered images even with very fast optical systems.

The QSI 660 camera employs a Sony ICX694 6.1 megapixel interline transfer CCD image sensor with microlens technology. The Sony ExView sensor has exceptional sensitivity across the visual band with peak quantum efficiency of 77% along with remarkably low dark current. The sensor has antiblooming protection and a fast electronic shutter. Micro lenses cover the surface of the CCD to focus the light into each 4.54µm pixel to increase optical response.
