QHY5P-II Colour is a 5 mega pixel high resolution Colour Planetary camera with high QE, using the advanced MT9P006 Colour sensor. Pixel size is a tiny 2.2um, resulting in high magnification without a Barlow lens.
Maximum QE is 62% in the Red, with a uniform noise background. With high USB2.0 transfer it can reach 7FPS at full resolution, 30FPS at 720p and 63 FPS at 640*480.
The camera body is 1.25 inch eyepiece format and is the perfect addition to a PST Solar telescope. It can be fully inserted into the eyepiece tube to easily reach the focal plane.
Please note… The Colour of the Camera may vary from the one illustrated above.
