A Starlight Xpress SXVR-H694 mono ccd camera is used for prime focus and wide-field imaging of DSO's in combination with a motorized Starlight Xpress filterwheel containing 2" HaLRGB filters. Additionally, O-III, S-II and a LPS filters can be mounted in the filterwheel. The H694 has a very high quantum efficiency (QE) of up to 77% as can be seen below using an extremely low-noise Sony chip.
