Product Description

The QHYCCD QHY5III174 CMOS Color Camera... 

QHYCCD QHY5III174 was built to capture the planets, Moon, Sun and meteor showers in HD video quality. This camera is also sensitive, capable of live video capture of stars to magnitude 8-9 at 30 frames per second.  Utliizing Sony's Global Shutter design, Pregius(tm), the QHY5III CMOS cameras provide crisp, clear, distortion free images even at high frame rates. This refined technology boosts CMOS camera performance to be comparable to CCD cameras, with lower read noise and higher overall sensitivity and quantum efficiency than CCD sensors of similar size and cost.  Pixelation is eliminated thanks to this innovative shutter technology. 
The compact design of QHYCCD's cameras, allows these powerful video cameras to remain the size of a typical 1.25" eyepiece.  With highly efficient heat transfer, noise is further reduced and your camera remains stable throughout the night, especially when exposed to high ambient temperatures.  This simple barrel design also provides the shortest backfocus possible making the QHY5III174 an excellent choice for off-axis guiding.  LEMO style connectors are used for rugged durability. 

QHY5III174 Features: 

  • Sony Exmor IMX174 color sensor
  • Global shutter technology for crisp clear images, with no distortion
  • Highly sensitive sensor
  • Extremely low noise of 6 electrons
  • LEMO connectors for lasting durability
  • Ultra efficient design for heat transfer for stable imaging.
