ASI 178MC-Cool (color)

FEATURES:

  • ZWO ASI178MC-COOL advanced color astronomy camera with back illuminated 6.4 megapixel CMOS sensor with 3096x2080 resolution, 2.4 μm pixels, and 8.92 mm diagonal size
  • Integrated TEC cooling reduces sensor temperature to 35C to 40C below ambient to keep noise low to enable imaging of faint deep-sky objects
  • Ideal for capturing high-resolution color astronomical images with excellent contrast as a result of superior resolution of 14-bit ADC
  • Advanced Sony IMX178 sensor with Exmor R technology for high-speed processing, low noise, and low power dissipation with back illuminated sensors
  • Fast USB 3.0 transfer at up to 60 fps at maximum 3096x2080 resolution and 253 fps at 640x480; interface is backward compatible to USB 2.0
  • Attractive red anodized CNC aluminum body stands up to heavy field use
  • Ready to go out of the box with software, cables, adapters, and manual
  • Compact body with 78mm diameter and weight of only 410 g 

DESCRIPTION:

Our new Frozen ASI178MC color camera allows the sensor to operate from 35 ° C to 40 ° C Here is the 60S long exposure dark field test, Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with 14-bit ADC.  ASI178MC has a 1 / 1.8 "and 6.4M pixel sensor IMX178 with SONY STARVIS and Exmor R technology. Very low read noise (2.2 e - 1.4e), high sensitivity and 14-bit ADC makes it ideal for astronomical and microscopic high resolution photos. We recommend using a 2.5A 12V or 3A minimum DC adapter as a cooler power supply.
