QHY 174 GPS Cooled Monochrome CMOS Telescope Camera

The QHY QHY174 ColdMOS GPS CMOS astronomy camera is ideal for imaging eclipses, meteors, and other astro-imaging that require highly precise recording of time and location during observation.

The QHY174 GPS CMOS Features

Dual-stage Thermo-electric Cooling

Take longer exposures without worrying about overheating your sensor! Its dual-stage TEC technology brings the sensor’s temperature to -45C below ambient temperature. 

Anti-moisture Control System

By having a heated optical window and removable desiccant cap for the sensor port, you can achieve those mesmerizing long exposure images of deep space objects without blurs from moisture! 

Four-pin QHYCFW2 Filter Wheel Control Port and Six-pin Autoguider Port

Save time with the QHYCFW2 Filter Wheel by not having to manually change out the camera body for different filer uses, and have better cable management with the 6-pin autoguider port.


Produce clearer images with the reduction of glow that can be seen in long exposure shots caused by circuitry in the camera.

Used by the Experts

More than 20 QHY174-GPS cameras were selected by NASA's New Horizon Team for imaging an occultation by MU69. The data was used for the New Horizon MU69 flyby on Jan. 1, 2019.

As always OPT shipped on time. Camera seems to work ok and can get GPS data displayed in the frames, although this was only a test indoors with GPS antenna out the window. But the signal was able to stay locked. I was using Sharpcap Pro 3.1
