QHY5R-II Color Planetary & Guide Camera



Do you want to dip your toe into planetary imaging through your telescope without breaking the bank? The QHY5R-II is the entry-level version of the QHY5-II series of compact, high speed USB2.0 planetary and guiding cameras, and will give you a lot of bank for your buck! There are lots of other uses for this QHY camera, too. Use the included Native WDM or Broadcast WDM drivers to allow for web-cam video capture or live video broadcasting!



The QHY 5R-II, just like all the other QHY5-II series cameras, is built to slide into a standard 1.25" eyepiece holder. Because it is so small and lightweight, the QHY5R-II is perfect as an auto-guider as well as an imager of bright objects. The design of the USB 2.0 cameras transfers the heat generated by the imaging sensor to the outside of the camera where it is absorbed by the telescope's eyepiece holder.



The CMOS color sensor used in the 5R-II is the 0.4 megapixel Aptina ASX340. It has an imaging array of 720 x 576 and a pixel size of 5.6um. The camera is capable of 100 FPS, or frames per second, at full resolution and a sensitivity of 16.5 V/lux-sec.
