QHY5III462C Planetary Camera with High Near Infrared Response

High QE 800-1000nm and Monochrome at NIR

The QHY5III462C uses Sony’s latest generation IMX462 back-illuminated sensor with extended red and near infrared response. It has nearly double the red and NIR sensitivity as previous generation BSI sensors and even greater sensitivity compared to front illuminated sensors. Because the RGB filters become transparent at NIR wavelengths, the camera captures RGB color images in visible light and monochrome images in NIR.

Low Light Sensitivity and 0.5e- Read Noise

Sony’s new sHCG (Super High Conversion Gain) technology produces a higher voltage from fewer photons resulting in greater sensitivity even at very low levels of light. With sHCG technology, even in visible light, the QHY5III462C has higher sensitivity than the back-illuminated IMX290 based cameras.

High Frame Rate 135FPS

To produce the highest detail with the greatest dynamic range, many planetary imagers prefer to capture hundreds or thousands of images in as short a time as possible and then process the results into one final combined image. This requires high sensitivity for short exposures and low read noise for combining multiple images. The QHY5III462C will output 135 frames per second at full resolution. With its exceptionally high QE and extraordinarily low (0.5e-) read noise, it is the perfect camera for planetary imaging.

Supplied with Filters for Visible and IR Imaging

IR850 Pass Filter for NIR, UV-IR Filter for Color

The QHY5III462C comes with two free 1.25-inch filters. The IR850 filter is a long wavelength pass filter that allows wavelengths > 850nm to pass through. The UV/IR filter passes visible light and blocks the NIR. With these two filters you can capture both RGB color images and NIR monochrome images with the same camera. At NIR wavelengths, the RGB filters become transparent and the camera behaves like a monochrome IR camera.

All our products are shippable. In all cases, full payment is required before our products are shipped. Currently Sidereal Trading Pty Ltd only ships to Australia, Australian Territories and New Zealand.

Deliveries are made via Registered Australia Post or TNT Australia. Tracking information and updates will be sent to the email address associated with the order. A link to the courier’s website tracking information may also be provided. All small items will be shipped via Australia Post – Parcel Post or if requested via Express Parcel Post. All large items will be Shipped via TNT Road Express or TNT Economy Express Export. Should you require Express Post for your order, please contact our staff to confirm any additional charges that may apply.

You may be required to sign for the delivery to confirm proof of receipt. If you are not there when the delivery is made, you may incur further charges from Australia Post or TNT Australia (not from Sidereal Trading Pty Ltd) to pick up the parcel from the nearest post office or depot.
Our Flat Rate delivery charges are determined per order depending on the category your products fall into. This will be specified once a postcode is entered at checkout.

Remote delivery destinations or other factors may cause the web-based shopping cart to underquote the shipping charges. Some regional areas of Australia and New Zealand will incur higher charges than specified at checkout. When this occurs, we will first contact you to confirm payment of the difference, or subsequently cancel the order and refund any payments made if this additional cost is prohibitive. At any time if you feel the shipping calculation does not seem correct, please contact us via phone or email so that we can fix the problem and raise the order for you with the correct shipping amount.

In-Store Pick Up is also possible. See Contact Us for Store Location.
