ZWO Camera ASI 183 MC Color

Product description:

ASI183 has much potential, and each feature means a new posibility! This camera is suitable for a wide range of astronomical application.

The ASI 183 camera series is the most sensitivie cameras in ZWO history. Peak Q.E. of the mono sensor reaches 84%!

Astrophotography Performance

In the astronomic application field, Sony IMX183CLK-J (monochrome) and IMX183CQJ-J (color) sensors uses a very high sensitivity back-illuminated structure with high resolution 2.4 μm square unit pixel. The ASI183 cameras have a very large full well capacity (15000e) for such small pixel size, 1.6e read noise @ 30DB, and 12 stops dynamic range @ Gain=0. The ASI183 cameras also utilize firmware features to minimize amplifier glow for maximum performance in astrophotography.

Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R technology is giving it excellent Deep Sky performance. ASI183 QE peak reaches a remarkable 84%. In Ha channel, QE is still over 60%. Having high QE means more of the light that enters your telescope and reaches the sensor is actually used. The ASI183 will utilize a high percentage of the light that reaches it, improving your signal quality.

High Speed

Fast FPS can be used in solar and lunar imaging, as well as for live viewing/EAA. The high speed readout may also be used for real-time focusing, true lucky imaging of double stars and other small objects, planetary imaging of the major planets in the solar system, and much more.
