The QHY5L-II is the size of a 1.25” eyepiece and sports the 1.23 megapixel Aptina MT9M034 monochrome CMOS sensor, which features high sensitivity and low noise. With an unbelievable 74% QE, the QHY5L-II's sensitivity exceeds many CCD sensors. The readout noise can reach as low as 4 electrons, and the sensor's on-chip FPN (Fixed Pattern Noise) calibration function keeps the image clear and uniform even under high gain. With these advantages, the QHY5L-II produces outstanding image quality for planetary imaging, guiding, deep sky imaging or when using in conjunction with the included wide angle lens as an all sky camera.

The QHY5L-II also offers high speed data transfer performance. It can achieve 30 FPS at full resolution and 200 FPS at 320x240. This frame rate is quite good for planetary capture.

Both native WDM drivers and Broadcast WDM drivers are supplied with the QHY5L-II. This means you can use it as a ultra high performance webcam or for live video broadcasts. You can show your friends what’s happening in the sky in realtime with this camera.

The QHY5L-II Premium Package includes an 8mm CS-mount lens that allows you to use the camera as an electronic finder. You'll also receive an 180-degree fisheye CS mount lens that will turn your QHY5L-II into an All Sky Camera.
