New! QHY-5-III-485C Color Planetary and AllSky Camera

We are pleased to announce a new addition to QHYCCDs line of high speed, high QE, low noise, planetary cameras, the QHY-5-III-485C. The QHY-5-III-485C uses Sony's new IMX485, back-illuminated, 8.4 megapixel color CMOS sensor with an array of 3864 x 2180 pixels at 2.9um. With USB 3.0 interface, the full frame rate of 18.5 FPS at 16-bits or 44 FPS at 8-bits. Smaller regions of interest will yield even faster frame rates. This new camera makes a great planetary combo with the other newly released  QHY 5-III-462C CMOS Camera (various versions available) (various versions available) .

Large Sensor Size

The QHY-5-III-485C has 4 times the area of the smaller QHY-5-III-462C and 4 times the number of pixels. In area it is the same size as the popular IMX174 sensor but with back-illumination and higher resolution. The generous field of view provided by this larger sensor makes it ideal for solar and lunar imaging whereas the smaller, faster  QHY 5-III-462C CMOS Camera (various versions available) (various versions available) with its enhanced IR response is superior for imaging planets like Jupiter, Saturn and Mars.

The following images show (from left to right) the field of view of QHY-5-III-485C and QHY-III-462C:

QHY 462C: Jupiter at a focal length of 8000mm, Field of view of QHY5III462C camera with C14 and 2X barlow
QHY 462C: Jupiter at a focal length of 8000mm, Field of view of QHY5III462C camera with C14 and 2X barlow

High QE and sHCG (Super High Cain Conversion)

While the QHY-5-III-485C does not have the extended near IR response of the QHY5III462C, it does have sHGC (Super High Cain Conversion) for exceptionally low (less than 1e-) read noise. For solar and lunar imaging, the NIR response is not required but the ability to take multiple short exposures in H-alpha light is ideal for solar use and making movies of solar prominences, arcs and eruptions.

Combination All Sky Camera

Field of view of the QHY5III485C with 2.5mm Fisheye lens

The QHY-5-III-485C standard package includes a 2.5mm Fisheye lens that converts the planetary camera intoa high-resolution, 8.3 Megapixel All Sky camera with 180-degree field of view. The following items are included with the camera:

  • Camera body
  • USB3.0 Cable
  • Tracking Cable
  • Focus Position Locking Ring
  • 2.5mm All Sky Lens
  • C-mount extension ring
  • 1.25" extension tube

Tolle Kamera für den Einstieg in EAA - live stacking
Wir haben uns diese Kamera bei Baader Planetarium gekauft, um erste Schritte in EAA zu machen und wurden nicht enttäuscht. Eine schöne, kompakte Kamera, die aus unserer Sicht ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis aufweist. Klar gibt es größere Sensoren, aber auch zu deutlich höheren Kosten. Aber mit der Sensorklasse dieser Kamera fühlen wir uns schon sehr gut aufgestellt.
Die Anwendung (wir haben Sharpcap Pro eingesetzt) völlig unproblematisch, aber ja, in die jeweilige Software muss man sich natürlich einarbeiten, da stehen wir auch noch am Anfang.

Auch wenn die Ergebnisse unseres EAA live stacking sicher noch Potential nach oben haben, haben wir mit dieser Kamera für uns das Modell gefunden, das uns eine Vielzahl vom Objekten ermöglicht und uns hier einen tollen Einblick in den Nachthimmel bietet.
Die beigefügten Bilder sind mit einem 127mm APO mit 0,67x Reducer entstanden.
Diese Bilder sind nicht bearbeitet, sondern das reine Ergebnis des live stackings, wie wir sie am Notebook gesehen haben.
Wir freuen uns auf weitere Nächte mit der tollen Kamera und EAA live stacking.
  • Umfangreiches Zubehör, wertige Fertigung, unkompliziert einsetzbar
