Ii have the chance to test brand new QHYCCD miniCAM5F, which is a planetary camera which have DSO imaging capabilities.
The camera has an Aptina MT9M034 monosensor, with a motorizd filter wheel 9 positions and 2 cooling stages (-45°C below ambient temperature). The camera have USB2, moisture avoid chamber and can be used with EZPlanetary for high speed acquisition and EZCapture (5 different gain selection) for long exposure mode. miniCAM5F will also be supported by Firecapture and probably SharpCap.
The filters provided with the miniCAM5F are LRGB. More filters are coming (from what i know, Ha, Hb, OIII, SII at least). The filters are 12mm diameter.
I made some Moon and planetary imaging tests and my setup is :
SCT 6" on Orion Sirius EQ-G mount.
I also made tests on DSO. You can see them here : http://www.cloudynig...with-minicam5f/
Just remember my scope is only SCT 6" so, some results won't be "terrific". I only post reduced images for the Moon. If you want full size pictures, just ask me.
I only made one test and unfortunately, the weather conditions were not good at all. It is an RGB acquisition.
Saturn is not easy to shoot this year. I only made 2 tests. Here is the best RGB acquisition.
