QHY5L-II Color CMOS Telescope Camera

The QHY5L-II color camera is an ideal lightweight guiding and planetary camera, its high QE of 74% plus the high-speed USB2 port enable very fast frame rates. With a revamped thermal design, heat produced by the CMOS sensor will be moved externally to the telescope’s eyepiece.  



The camera uses a single USB port for camera control and power to provide simplicity and ease of use. The USB communication port has been updated to take advantage of the full download speed and to eliminate noise that had been caused by the USB port in the past.

Revamped Design

The QHY5L-II color camera uses the 1/3-inch, 1.2 MP Aptina MT9M034 CMOS sensor. The 1280 x 960 pixel array of 3.75 um pixels are capable of video speeds of 30 frames per second at full resolution. Choose from a variety of optional lenses with its c-mount interface for flexibility!
