With the QHY5L-II I today achieved the following fps values (EzPlanetary 3.44):

1280x960 30fps
640x480 107fps
320x240 157fps

May not be optimum yet, since I am still trying to figure out how to work best which acquistion parameters are best.

I'm also testing this cam and I have to say that in a first approach seems to promise very well, but I must say that the speed reported by Laura, are speed cam 8-bit.
if the cam is used in 12-bit, the speed is halved, but still remain very good speed in relation to the most dynamic acquisition.
Soon I'll post the first pictures.

I've just received the QHY5L-ll mono and at the moment can only get 55fps @ 640x480 both on my quad core pc and 2 gig ram netbook which is rather a puzzle?

Also firecapture can't find the cam on my netbook but it works fine with the pc?
