After the success of the QHY5 Guiding Camera (2006-2012), QHYCCD released its next-generation QHY5-II Planetary/Guiding Camera. The QHY5-II series camera improves the data-transfer speed up to the maximum USB2.0 data rate of 39MByte/sec, 30FPS@1280x1024 or 1280x960 on modern computers and hundreds of frames per second in certain ROI modes.
The QHY5-II fits in a standard 1.25-inch eyepiece adapter and has an adjustable location ring for confocality with an eyepiece. It is ideal for use as a low-weight auto guider. The QHY5-II comes in a very small but powerful package! Its improved thermal design allows the heat generated by the CMOS sensor to be transferred externally to the telescope's eyepiece tube.
The QHY5-II is supplied with both Native WDM and Broadcast WDM drivers, which means you can use it as an ultra-high-performance web-cam for video capture or live video broadcasting. Show real-time astronomy images and events to your friends! The QHY5-II series can also be connected with the QHY InterCam stand-alone camera
