QSI 540ws astronomical imaging camera
(pics of camera that I took 28 Nov 17, are below)

Includes BRAND NEW faceplate and internal 5-position filter wheel accepts 31mm **or** 1.25" filters. Filter wheel is completely controlled automatically through same software that controls camera.

All original packaging - including QSI shipment box, Pelican Case, Pelican box, and all original documents from QSI from the day it was first purchased.

I am the *original owner* and purchased camera brand new from QSI, directly. M33 and other images here are examples of work done using this camera. Many more are on my primary astro site.

I just bought a new QSI as an upgrade, so this is why I am now selling my 540ws.

Asking $2300 - Considering all reasonable offers.

FREE Shipping! (CONUS only)

NO PayPal fee!

NOTE: Camera for sale is the ws version with filter wheel --- *not* wsg version that you see on my site (same camera, but different faceplate only).
