    Used QHY miniCAM5F Monochrome w/ 9 Position Filter Wheel w/ LRGB & Black Filters - Sold

    QHY offers a fully cooled CMOS camera with a built in motorized filter wheel in an affordable package. The QHY miniCAM5F features a dual stage thermo electric cooling system that effectively cools the camera to -38C below ambient. With a highly sensitive 1.2 mega pixel sensor capable of 74% QE and able to capture 30 frames per second at a full resolution of 1280x960 and up to 200 frames per second at 320x240 pixels. Readout noise is also excellently low at 2 electron. The 9 position filter wheel is built to hold the included L,R,G,B & CH4 and Black filter on the same filter wheel disk. The specialized black filter is for taking and subtracting your dark frames. A minified version of a typical cooled CCD camera, these included filters are a miniaturized 12mm size (when compared to more typical 1.25" or 50mm filters). They fit perfectly into the filter wheel and help keep the entire system weight low, self contained and very budget friendly.
    The QHY miniCAM5F has a peak QE of 74% and it is especially well suited for capturing smaller night sky objects like the planets, smaller (or more distant) galaxies and globular clusters. When paired with a "fast" or shorter focal length telescope it is also suitable for large diiffused nebulae. Additional features include an onboard heater to keep dew from forming on your CMOS window and desiccant is included to help keep your system dry.
    Weighing in at about 13 ounces for the total system, the QHY miniCAM lives up to its name! Create a super portable, mini imaging system with this tiny powerhouse camera. Happily paired with a small refractor and light duty EQ mount you could be capturing incredible layered images without being weighed down.
