About this product

Model:  qsi_6120i
Part Number:  6120i

The QSI 6120 model camera employs an 12mp 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 colour filter wheels make the QSI 6120 ideally suited to a broad range of demanding scientific, medical, astronomical, and industrial imaging applications.

The QSI 6120wsg 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 6120 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.

  • High Performance CCD Image Sensor
  • Leading Edge Technical Performance
  • Refined Design
  • Efficient, Low Power CCD Sensor Cooling
  • Two Shutters and a Filter Wheel
  • Innovative Integrated Guider Port
  • Connectivity and Notification
  • Extensive Software Support

The 4250×2838 sensor in the QSI 6120,provides extremely high resolution with its 3.1µm pixel.

The compact design and internal colour filter wheel of the QSI 6120ws allows unvignetted, filtered images even with very fast optical systems.

The QSI 6120 camera employs a Sony ICX834 12 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 3.1µm pixel to increase optical response. See the Specifications tab below for additional details.
