QHY CCD QHY5-III-290-M, Full HD Back-illuminated, Ultra-low Read Noise CMOS Camera, Monochrome



QHY CCD QHY5-III-290-C, Full HD Back-illuminated, Ultra-low Read Noise CMOS Camera, Color
 
 
The QHY5III290 uses the SONY STARVIS Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS sensor.  Starvis means you can see very dim stars in real time video. The QHY5III290 can capture magnitude 9 stars with a 50mm F/1.4 C-mount lens.  Compared to the IMX236 sensor, for example, the IMX290 has twice sensitivity for visible light and three or more times the sensitivity in near infrared.   
 
The QHY5III290 also has ultra low read noise.  The back-illumination and low read noise make this camera an ideal video astronomy camera.  The small 2.9um pixel size is also ideal for planetary imaging.
 
The QHY5III290 has a fast USB 3.0 interface and produces 135FPS at full HD output . The camera has 10/12-bit ADC and it outputs an 8-bit or 12-bit image.
 
QHY5III290 is available in both mono (QHY5III290M) and color (QHY5III290C) versions.
 
QHY5-III Series - USB3.0
Compact, Super-Speed, High Sensitivity, Planetary/Guiding Cameras
 
The QHY5-III series cameras are USB3.0 super-speed cameras and guiders.  They can be used in a standard 1.25-inch eyepiece holder and have an adjustable location ring for confocality with an eyepiece. All QHY5-III series cameras come in a very small but powerful package!
 
The QHY5-III series employs an advanced thermal design. The heat generated by the CMOS sensor is transferred externally to the telescope's eyepiece tube. Additional heat is transferred to a heat sink on the location ring and cooled by outside air.
 
Software support includes: EZPlanetary, SharpCAP, FireCapture, Native WDM, BroadCast WDM and ASCOM.
 
The QHY5-III camera family includes the QHY5III174, QHY5III178, QHY5III185, QHY5III224, QHY5III290 and more to come.

QHY5III290  uses the IMX290 STARVIS Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS sensor. Available in both color and monochrome versions. Extremely low read noise. 1920x1080 full-HD resolution. 1/2.8-inch sensor size. This might be the highest-sensitivity sensor from Sony with such a small pixel size. The QHY5III290M can be regarded as the next generation in monochrome planetary cameras after the QHYCCD QHY5L-II-M.

“Special Thanks to QHYCCD for their help on technical and software settings. Excellent after sales service of the QHYCCD dealer Cyclops Optics  and very knowledgeable!  The QHY5-III-290M camera is so low noise and more sensitive that I could reduce my capture time. I can finish my session in 15 minutes with superior images vs 45 minutes before! ”     — Chris Go.
