ASI 1600MC (color)

FEATURES:

  • ZWO ASI1600MC color astronomy camera with 16 megapixel 4/3” CMOS sensor with 4656x3520 resolution, 3.8 μm pixel size, and 21.9 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
  • Ideal for capturing wide field and high-resolution color astronomical images of deep-sky objects, and works well for solar-system imaging as well
  • 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 ZWO ASI1600MC is the first camera by ZWO that is designed specifically for deep-sky imaging, but it also does a great job on the planets as well! The ASI1600MC uses a color 4/3" CMOS 16 MP sensor with a 4656 x 3520 array of 3.8um pixels. This sensor has extremely low read noise of 1.2e and has a maximum of 23 FPS at full resolution.

The ZWO ASI1600MC body has been updated to include a removable M42 adapter that can reduce back focus to just 6.5 mm. A high speed USB 3.0 port, an ST4 guide port, a 1/4” tripod thread mount on the back, and an AR window are also features of this ZWO DSO camera. The included software is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems.
