Description


Inc LRGB Filter Set as standard

Optional Narrowband (Ha, SII, OIII) Filter set available for only £135 with Minicam5F - see product options below.


The new QHY miniCAM5F, an evolution of the miniCAM5S, comes with a built-in 9 position motorised filter wheel and LRGB filter set.

Enhanced with long exposure capability and cools -45ºC below ambient whilst based on the same 1.2 megapixel 1/3” sensor used in the highly sensitive QHY5L-II.

Thermal noise is reduced significantly making this camera a great deep sky astrophotography camera.

This capable camera comes with QHYCCD 12mm LRGB filters. This gives you high resolution LRGB astrophotography, planetary or deep sky.

The 12mm filters save you a great deal over 1.25″ LRGB filters which can cost upward of £200. Optional Ha, SII, OIII Filter set available for only £135 with Minicam5F - see product options below. 

Dew formation is history. The miniCAM5F has a built-in CMOS chamber heating board that prevents dew from forming when the camera is cooled down way below ambient temperature. A desiccant tube with silica gel is also supplied, for drying the CMOS chamber if necessary.

The camera and the built-in filter wheel can be fully controlled by EzCAP on both Windows and Mac OSX platforms.

Were sure youll have fun exploring astrophotography with this camera!
