A high-res colour camera for planetary imaging, with accessories

The QHY5P-II is a 5.0 mega pixel high resolution colour planetary camera with high QE by using the MT9P006 sensor. It has the 1.25inch eyepiece size confocal design. 2.2um super small pixel, resulting in a high magnification without using barlow lens.

With a quantum efficiency of up to 62% it is very suitable for shooting the Moon and the planets, making it an affordable way for beginners to get started with astrophotography.

The premium package add five accessories to expand the use of your camera; a CS-mount adapter, a cool tripod adapter that slips around the body of the camera, a small tripod for webcam use, an 8 mm CS lens for electric view finder use and a 180º CS lens to transform the QHY 5 into an all-sky camera. 

The planet photos in the gallery above were all taken with this camera on an 8" reflector, by Shaun Fletcher. Check out some of his other stuff here
