QHY5P-II-C Colour Camera
Dave Says: " The MT9M001 has been around for awhile now and as a mono camera is the choice for many wanting a more sensitive guide camera than the colour version, and is also ideal for Solar imaging too!"
The QHY5P-II Colour is a 5 mega pixel high resolution Colour Planetary camera with high QE, using the advanced MT9P006 Colour sensor. Pixel size is a tiny 2.2um, resulting in high magnification without a Barlow lens.
Maximum QE is 62% in the Red, with a uniform noise background. With high USB2.0 transfer it can reach 7FPS at full resolution, 30FPS at 720p and 63 FPS at 640*480.
The camera body is 1.25 inch eyepiece format and is the perfect addition to a PST Solar telescope. It can be fully inserted into the eyepiece tube to easily reach the focal plane.
Supplied in a handy storage box with USB & ST4 Cables, 1.25" Extension (threaded for filters), 1.25" Parfocalising Ring, Windows (XP, 7 and 8) drivers and capture software.
The camera is also supported by PHD, MetaGuide, Firecapture, SharpCap and software using the ASCOM platform.
