Description

We proudly announce the QHY miniCAM5F, an evolution of the miniCAM5S, with a built-in 9 position motorised filter wheel and LRGB filter set.

Enhanced with long exposure capability and cools -38ºC below ambient whilst based on the same 1.2 megapixel 1/3” sensor used in the highly sensitive QHY5L-II.

Thermal noise is reduced significantly making this camera a great deep sky astrophotography camera.

At only £649 we bundle this capable camera with QHYCCD 12mm LRGB filters. This gives you out-of-the-box capability of doing high resolution LRGB astrophotography, be it planetary or deep sky. The 12mm filters save you a great deal over 1.25″ LRGB filters which can cost upward of £200. Optional Ha, SII, OIII, Hb and Methane (CH4) filters are also available. 

Dew formation is history. miniCAM5F has a built-in CMOS chamber heating board that prevents dew from forming when the camera is cooled down way below ambient temperature. A desiccant tube with silica gel is also supplied, for drying the CMOS chamber if necessary.

The camera and the built-in filter wheel can be fully controlled by EzCAP on both Windows and Mac OSX platforms.

We’re sure you’ll have fun exploring astrophotography with this camera!
