Product Description

The QHYCCD QHY5III224 CMOS Monochrome Camera... 

QHYCCD's QHY5III224 CMOS camera utilizes Sony's 1/3 inch IMX224 full color sensor.  Among small CMOS sensors, this is Sony's most sensitive thanks to a very low readout noise - often less than 1 electron at high gain.   With noise virtually eliminated the QHY5III224 has the ability to capture images at very low light, making it an ideal planetary imager, guide camera and entry level deep sky imager for brighter DSO's.   
With a USB 3.0 high speed interface, the 5III 224 camera has the ability to capture 150 frames per second at full 1280x960 pixel resolution.  Other features include 12 bit transfer mode, exposure range of 7 milliseconds to 429 seconds.   A compact design modeled after a standard 1.25" eyepiece keeps backfocus at a minimum and heat transfer at maximum efficiency.  Built-in LEMO 5 pin guide pocket remains reliable and durable through years of use.  This camera is CS adapter compatible.
