If you think a cooled camera with a built-in motor driven color wheel is expensive, then we are here to prove you wrong. QHYCCD is proud to release miniCAM5F, the highly sensitive cooled CMOS camera with nine positions motor driven colorwheel at only USD799. You will get rich features at this price, it includes regulated dual stage TEC that cools the camera -45C below ambient. The sensor has 74% high QE, 1280*960 1.2mega pixels, capable of capturing at 30FPS@1280*960 and 200FPS@320*240 with extremly low readout noise down to 2 electron. You can install the L,R,G,B,Ha,OIII,SII,CH4 and a black filter(for dark frame capture) together on this filter disk.
Another important benefit you will get is that you can get these filters at cheap price. Astronomy filter is a huge expense for mono camera. Especially collecting all the necessary filters.You may spend more than USD1000 for 1.25inch LRGBHaOIIISII filters. But for miniCAM5F, the QHY defined 12mm mini filter size will save a lot money for you.The miniCAM5F is bundled with LRGB filters and the optional Ha,OIII,SII,Hbeta and CH4 filter just USD50 each. We believe these filter will give you a lot fun to play with,not only for planetary but also for DSO imaging.
miniCAM5F has a 74% high QE, 1.2mega pixel CMOS sensor. It is very suitable for capture some small objects like the planetary nebluae, small galaxies and the globular clusters. If you have a short focal length OTA, it is also ideal for the big diffused nebula. miniCAM5F is a really mini camera. You can build a compact imaging system with this camera.
miniCAM5F has full anti-moisture feature. It has built-in heater board to avoid moisture from forming on the CMOS chamber window.The CMOS chamber can also be dried with the bundled silicon gel tube when necessary.
Produceing affordable, multi-propose and high quality camera has been our goal. QHYCCD hopes this camera will give you a big surprise and a lot of fun when you explore astrophotography.
