Use as planetary camera

The QHY5III178 uses the Sony IMX178 STARVIS back illuminated sensor latest generation monochrome sensor. This sensor offers great technical specifications:

- high resolution (3072 x 2048 pixel) 
- compact pixels dimensions (2,4 micron)
- extremely low readout noise

Thanks to electronics with USB 3.0 connection to control PC, the QHY5III178 allows you to record many images per second (up to 50 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 very good not only as a planetary camera but also for those looking a 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Sophisticated design

The QHY5III178 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.
