See Jupiter through an 8″ f/5 GSO Newtonian telescope with a QHY5-II-m camera

I recently bought a QHY5-II-M camera since I am currently facing USB connectivity problems with my current DMK31 from “The Image Source” on my new notebook (update: I was unfortunately not able to get it working).

I tested the new QHY5-II-M camera on Jupiter with my 8″ GSO f/5 (f=1000mm) Newtonian telescope. I took some footage without and with a 2x barlow lens.

The camera chip pixel size is 3.75um x 3.75um, the resolution is 1280×960. Therefore, the magnification is 155x without barlow lens and 310x with barlow lens. Additionally, I stacked two photos of Jupiter based on the footage I collected. The two pictures you find below. If you look closely you can see some of Jupiter’s moons 🙂

I captured another video of the Moon with the QHY5-II-M camera here.

Clear skies!
