QHY5-III is a third generation QHYCCD USB3.0 camera utilising state of the art CMOS sensor with sophisticated thermal design in a compact form. The well acclaimed 1.25" eyepiece barrel design is retained and with grooved heatsink to enhance passive cooling.
Sony IMX-178 is a 1/1.8 inch back-side illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor with a whopping 6.3 megapixels (3072x2048) each of 2.4µm size with rolling shutter. The maximum capturing speed is 50 frames per seconds at full resolution. The small pixel size combined with the relatively fast capturing speed makes this a great planetary camera and deep sky camera for small angular size objects.
Apart from the state of the art sensor, the QHY5-III is equipped with aerospace grade guiding port, i.e. the 5 pin LEMO port which provides highly reliable connection. This is a feature only available on premium camera where manufacturers really care about its customers.
