QHY QHY5P-II Series Cameras

QHYCCD followed up the success of the QHY5 Guiding Camera by introducing its newest series of Planetary & Guiding Cameras, the QHY5-II. These cameras advance the data transfer speed all the way to the maximum USB 2.0 data rate of 39 MB per second, 30 FPS @ 1280x1024, or 1280x960 on current computer systems, and hundreds of frames per second in particular ROI modes.

QHY5-II cameras fit in a common 1.25" eyepiece adapter and feature an adjustable location ring for confocal imaging with an eyepiece. Optimal for use as a light weight auto guider. The QHY5-II comes in a compact yet robust package. It has an improved thermal design that enables the heat produced by the CMOS sensor to be moved externally to the telescope's eyepiece tube.

This QHY5-II camera is equipped with both Native WDM and Broadcast WDM drivers. This means you can also utilize this camera as a superior, high-performance webcam for capturing video or presenting a live video broadcast to show off your astronomy images to your friends in real time!

QHY QHY5P-II Color CMOS Camera & Autoguider

The QHY5P-II features 5.0 megapixels. Pixel size is 2.2 microns square with the image sensor size at 1/2". This camera is best equipped for personal solar imaging. Its 1.25" diameter enables it to be used in the eyepiece tube of a PST while fixing the confocality problem typically encountered with them. The small pixel size allows for high-resolution images even when not using a Barlow lens. Also available in monochrome.
