Product Details

  • The QHY5-III 178 Color CMOS is an accelerated and receptive astronomy camera and autoguider. A small pixel size of only 2.4 µm, a large field of view, and a high-resolution of 3072 x 2047 make it a prime planetary imaging andguide camera. 

    QHY5-111 178 Color CMOS Telescope Camera Features

    Astronomy Imaging

    Capable of locating a high number of stars this camera is ideal for a wide field of view, autoguiding, and planetary imaging. The QHY5-III 178 has the anti-amp glow control function which can reduce the amplifier glow significantly, making this a great option for beginner deep-sky imaging. 

    StarVis BSI Image Sensor

    With a sensitivity of 2000 mV or more per 1-degrees m^2, Sony’s trademarked StarVis BSI image sensor is truly optimized in magnitude.StarVis is back-illuminated, pixel technology is used in CMOS image sensors for high sensitivity applications. 

    Proven Design

    A standard feature in the QHY5-III Series is its 1.25-inch eyepiece design. By creating a more efficient transfer of heat to the outer case, it enables lower noise, especially in high ambient temperatures. The 1.25-inch design also offers the shortest possible backfocus, making the camera ideal for off-axis guiding. Finally, the QHY5-III 178 uses the rugged and dependable LEMOS style of guiding port connectors.
