Quick Overview

QHY5III224 is the new USB 3.0 planetary camera, also as autoguider, equipped with a Sony IMX224 sensor with dimensions 4.8mm x 3.6 and resolution 1280 x 960. The high-speed USB 3.0 connection allows you to record up to 150 images per second at full resolution!


These features make it perfect for people looking for the best camera for planetary and lunar/solar imaging but also for those searching for a guide camera: it's perfect thanks to integrated ST4 port (which allows direct connection to mounts).

Details

The QHY5III224 camera uses the IMX224 sensor (available in color only). With its extremely-low readout noise of less than one electron, the IMX224 sensor achieved the top score in the new SNR1 index proposed by Sony for picture quality at low illumination. It is one of your best choices for color planetary imaging.

 

 

Use as planetary camera

The QHY5III224 uses the latest generation Sony IMX224 color sensor. This sensor offers great technical specifications:

- dimensions 4.8mm x 3.6mm, diagonal 6mm
- resolution 1280 x 960 pixel

Thanks to electronics with USB 3.0 connection to control PC, the QHY5III224 allows you to record many images per second (up to 150 fps at full resolution - note: the recorded fps number also depends on the control PC speed). So you can get video composed of more images that, processed with special software for astrophotography, enable you to achieve better results!





 

Use as autoguider

These advanced technical features make it perfect not only as a planetary camera but also for those looking a sensitive guide camera. It has a built-in ST4 port (with LEMO connector, known to be very robust - the ST4 guide cable on the mount side instead has the classic connector for connection to the most popular mounts) that allows direct connection to the mount. In addition, the high quantum efficiency makes the camera very sensitive and therefore it will be easier to find the guide stars.






Sophisticated design

The QHY5III224 camera has the design of the previous QHY5II series, with 31.8mm diameter accessory shape. In this way QHYCCD got better efficiency in heat transfer to the outside of the camera body. This particular design also provides a very low back focus makes the camera ideal for off-axis guiders.
