The QHY5-III 224 C uses SONY 1/3inch ultra low readout noise CMOS sensor IMX224. The sensor is declared as the highest sensitivity cmos sensor in SONY small sensors. The reason for such high sensitivity is due to its low readout noise (may less than 1 electron at high gain). The low readout noise means it has strong capability to capture the weak light without been flood by noise background. This feature brings advantages for high ratio planetary imaging.
QHY224 has USB3.0 super speed interface. It has 150FPS at 1280*960 full size output. The high frame rate can reduce atmospheric agitation. QHY5III224 includes 8bit and 12bit transfer mode. The exposure time from 20us to 1200sec. It is not only for planetary and guiding but also for some basic deep sky imaging.
QHY5-III 224 has compact 1.25inch eyepiece design and CS adapter compatible. It has build-in 5pin LEMO guide socket, solid and reliable. This represents high quality and reliable.
QHY5-III 224 has only color version (QHY5III224C).

The QHY5-III 174C is first in the QHY5-III series CMOS USB3.0 cameras. The camera is designed to be an excellent Planetary, Lunar and Solar and meteor capture video camera. With a 50mmF1.4 C-mount lens it can detect stars up to mag 8 or 9 at 30FPS (33ms exposure) live video. This high sensitivity with HD resolution pushes video astronomy to new heights. For a back illuminated equivalent with high IR sensitivity consider the QHY5III585C
The QHY6 is a cooled 16 bit camera with a sensitive 1/3″ Mono EXview CCD that offers excellent guiding performance and deep sky imaging. It can be used without external power, for guiding, or with a 12 volt supply for cooled long exposure imaging.
