Having the highest sensitivity among Sony's small sensors, The IMX224 sensor's low readout noise leads to high sensitivity.
Great for high ratio planetary imaging due to its low readout noise properties. It is better equipped to take in faint light without being flooded by background noise.
Fast USB3 interface with 150 FPS at 1280 x 960 full size output helps the QHY5III224 reduce atmospheric agitation. The camera includes both 8bit and 12bit transfer modes. With an exposure time range between 20 µs and 1200 seconds, the QHY5III224 is not only suitable for planetary imaging and guiding, it is an excellent instrument for some elementary deep sky imaging as well.
5Pin LEMO connectors for ruggedness and durability.
