Tycho First Light by phrostie Tycho First Light by phrostie
First light on my new QHY5 camera.  It's not high end, but it does well at narrow field planetary work.
10" Newtonian f4.7
QHY5II CCD
50 frames stacked in Registax.

QHY5 camera, pretty cool.  Looks really smooth.  Is it color or mono camera?

I got the Mono, but I haven't decided if it was the right choice yet.
still learning my way with it.

It's pretty tricky picking out ccd camera's, the pro's and con's. Mono ccd come in pretty handy with solar photography and lunar photography.
I have color ccd works great with planetary but, not with solar photography. I wish they make a combo ccd camera with both color / mono in a single camera make it easier.

I already knew what I was doing with DSLRs.
CCD are a different world.

DSLR lot easier to use than ccd, don't have to use a laptop and everything in the camera. :D (Big Grin)


What kind of frames rate to do you get with your ccd?

I use a Tablet app with my DSLR.
I wish i could do that with the CCD.
I haven't found a way yet.

I have no Idea what the frame rates were.
I'll look the next time i'm set up.
