QHY5-II Series - USB 2.0
Compact, High Speed, High Sensitivity Planetary / Guiding Cameras
After the success of the QHY5 Guiding Camera (2006-2012), QHYCCD released its next-generation QHY5-II Planetary/Guiding Cameras. The QHY5-II series improves the data-transfer speed up to the maximum USB2.0 data rate of 39MB/sec, 30FPS@1280x1024 or 1280x960 on modern computers and hundreds of frames per second in certain ROI modes.
QHY5-II series cameras fit in a standard 1.25-inch eyepiece holder and have an adjustable location ring for confocality with an eyepiece. They are ideal for use as low-weight autoguiders. QHY5-II series cameras come in very small but powerful packages! The improved thermal design allows the heat generated by the CMOS sensor to be transferred externally to the telescope's eyepiece tube.
QHY5-II series cameras are supplied with both Native WDM and Broadcast WDM drivers, which means you can use them as an ultra-high-performance web-cam for video capture or live video broadcasting. Show real-time astronomy images and events to your friends! QHY5-II series cameras can also be connected with the QHY InterCam stand-alone camera.
