Color Moon miniCAM5F LRGB vs QHY5L-II-C
I am really amazed with the quality of the mono sensor with filters. It is much much better then the bayer sensor. I am very happy with the minicam5f. The details are of course better but the colors are really better. I will have a lot of work to do on the Moon. --Alain

Kepler452b is a hot news announced by NASA. It is a exoplanetary very similar with the earth. Many people are interested in this object. Although we could not see it directly but we could see its "sun" - the Kepler452, which is a mag13.7 star. On 12,Sept, QHYCCD and TusStar Venture Incubator (QHYCCD is located in TusPark and a member of TusStar) organized a star party in Bashang, HeiBei, China, a really dark site, five hours drive from Beijing City. This is the picture we took during this star party by using our QHY8L color camera and RASA telescope. 2minutes*10. CCD Temperature at -40C, no dark frame and no flat frame. We used automatic background flatening method to process the vignetting of the telescope. Click image to see the large view.
