Configure Angeleyes 1.25″ wifi astronomy CMOS camera

If you have purchased one of these 1.25″ CMOS cameras and have a hard time deciphering the Chinese manual for how to connect and use it, here are the instructions I had to work out in English.


  • If using from an iPhone or Android, install the XMEye app from the app store.


  • Connect power to the camera, I use a USB battery brick for running the camera. Search ebay for DUAL USB SOLAR POWER BANK PORTABLE EXTERNAL BATTERY and you will find them for under $40
  • If the blue Indicator light is flashing or off, hold the Reset Switch for 5+ seconds and release
  • It should then turn solid.
  • From your phone or computer look for the new wifi network that should appear in a few seconds, in my case it was call xmjp_beye_6600


  • Join the wifi network with the password 1234567890
  • You will get an IP 192.168.10.x
  • The cameras IPS is
  • From the XMEye app choose direct login on the bottom right


  • You should see the camera in the DeviceList. Click on it and them CAM01


  • Move the camera around towards a light source and you will see the view in the Live video screen.


  • You can now press on the Camera or Video buttons to record to your phones photo album
  • If wanting to view the camera from a windows PC, you will need to install IP Camera viewer software that can talk to the camera on
  • The web interface login is username: admin password: blank
  • I tried using the IP Camview app but have not yet found a camera make and model selection that works in previewing the display. I suspect the cmos camera type is 50H10PE, image sensor is a tiny type-1/4″ 1280×720 (720P) OV9712 at 3um pitch, and its camera controller SoC is HiSilicon’s Hi3518E.
