Description

QHY5III290 uses the SONY STARVIS Exmor R back illuminated CMOS sensor. The Starvis sensor is incredibly sensitive, allowing you to see very dim stars in realtime video. The QHY5III290 can capture magnitude 9 stars when connected with a 50mmF1.4 C-mount lens. Compared to the IMX236 sensor, it has twice the sensitivity for visible light and three or more times in near infrared wavelengths. 
 
The QHY5III290 has ultra-low readout noise, as well. The back-illuminated sensor and low readout noise make this camera an ideal video astronomy camera.  The small 2.9um pixel size is also ideal for planetary imaging.
 
The QHY5III290 has a "super speed" USB3.0 interface and can deliver 180FPS at full HD output . The camera has 10/12bit ADC and it outputs the 8bit image or 12bit image.
Choose from either color or monochrome versions of this camera.
