ASI 185MC-Cool (color)

ASI 185MC-Cool (color)

FEATURES:

  • ZWO ASI185MC-COOL advanced color astronomy camera with 1.2 megapixel CMOS sensor with 1944x1224 resolution, 3.5 μm pixel size, and 8.58 mm diagonal
  • Integrated TEC cooling reduces sensor temperature to 35C to 40C below ambient to keep noise low to enable imaging of faint deep-sky objects
  • Produces single-shot color images without the need for a filter wheel and color filters
  • Ideal for capturing high-contrast and high-resolution color astronomical images of solar system objects and many deep-sky objects
  • Advanced Sony IMX185 sensor with Exmor technology for high-speed processing, low noise, and low power dissipation 
  • Fast USB 3.0 transfer at up to 108 fps at maximum 1304x976 resolution and 268 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:

The cooling version of the ZWO ASI185MC camera allows the sensor to operate at low temperatures from 35°C to 40°C. Here is the camera 60S long exposure of the dark field test, ASI185MC has a 1 / 1.9 "and 2.3 megapixel sensor IMX185 with SONY Exmor and NIR technology. Relative to the QE curve, we estimate that the peak should be 75% -80%. Very low read noise (3.3e) and high sensitivity, especially in the infrared range. 
The ASI185MC has the same pixel size as the ASI224MC, but the chip size is large. In normal mode, the camera can run without an external power supply. We recommend a DC adapter at 2.5A or larger 12V for the cooler power supply.
