The QHY174C camera is the same as the QHY174M-GPS but without the addition of an optional GPS based precision time and location function and a color sensor.  The QHY174C has dual stage TE cooling to -45C below ambient with full anti-moisture control including heated optical window and removable desiccant plug for the sensor chamber. 

The camera has our 4-pin QHYCFW2 filter wheel control port and a 6-pin auto guider port.  The QHY174 also has an anti-amp glow function.  It can reduce the IMX174 sensor's amplifier glow significantly in long exposures.  The IMX174 sensor has a global shutter and is capable of high frame rates, both ideal features for a time-domain imaging camera.

The QHY174 camera is designed to be an excellent planetary, lunar, solar and meteor capture video camera. With a 50mm F1.4 lens it will record mag 8 to mag 9 stars in live video recording at 30FPS (33ms exposure), several magnitudes fainter than can typically be seen with the naked eye.  The QHY174's high sensitivity with HD resolution will push video astronomy to new heights.
