Shipping Calculator

Rare cooled, with motor-driven filter wheel camera for such an affordable price. MiniCAM5F offers a highly-sensitive, cooled CMOS camera that is packed with features. Installed with dual-stage TEC which can cool the sensor down by -38c below ambient. Also, the sensor has 74% high quantum efficiency, 1.2 mega pixels; making it very suitable for capturing smaller objects like planetary nebulae, small galaxies and globular clusters.

MiniCAM5F is a compact camera, therefore it is ideal for building a compact imaging system

Anti-dew technology utilises a built-in heater board to prevent moisture from forming on the CMOS chamber window. Optional to insert bundled silica gel tubes into the CMOS chamber when necessary.

A mini astrophotography camera packed with many big features, it is sure to impress.
