The QHY10 is a APS-C size cooled one shot colour CCD camera using SONY's ICX494AQA CCD Sensor.
It has 10 Mega Pixels, with pixel size of 6.05x6.05um.
Beside the very low thermal noise of Sony's SuperHAD technology, this sensor has a high fullwell depth. Even with 6.05um square pixels, it has 45ke of fullwell depth.
This is almost double that of the ICX413 wich has 7.8um square pixels, and again almost double that of the color 8300 sensors 5.4um square pixels.
Fullwell depth gives the advantage of a higher dynamic range.
It also brings better colours and smaller star points.
You can take longer exposures without signal saturation.
Using its two stage TEC, It can cool to -40C delta T below ambient.
Combined with QHY's cooling technology, SONY's SuperHAD technology gives the QHY10 a clean and low noise image, even in very long exposures.
