The QHY5L-II is a new QHY CMOS camera for planetary imaging applications, which can also be used as an auto-guider. Unlike older CMOS technologies the QHY5L-II has no fixed pattern noise, and there's no random horizontal noise. This camera has high FPS performance: up to 200fps @ 320 x 240 and the Mono version has a quantum efficiency (QE) of 75%, making basic deep sky imaging possible. Camera is 1.25" EP diameter and now has a native C or CS mount as standard. Choose this camera if you require an all in one camera with planetary, guiding & basic deep sky capabilities at a very affordable price.
