ZWO ASI 071 Color Camera- Cooled
The new ASI 071 Camera from ZWO will be yet another excellent offering to the field of Astronomy Photography, of that we are sure. Offering a whopping 28.4mm sized sensor diagonal and a 16 mega pixel resolution, this Camera will be capable of producing some truly fantastic images of most any target you can get it aimed at! This camera is designed to be especially well suited to DSO imaging, capable of reaching and capturing the data and beauty available in the darkest depths of the deep night sky, the farthest reaches of observable space that your telescope can reach! Furthermore, as a full color camera it is simple and easy to capture your images- no hassle with cycling through five different filters and filter wheels, just adapt it to your telescope, point and shoot!
Another cool feature of this camera is its incredibly low read noise and gain, averaging 2.3e @24db gain! This incredibly low read noise is made even better by the high power thermo-electric cooling utilized inside this camera to moderate temperature and keep noise low. This is also ZWO's first camera to use an APS-C format sensor, an important and interesting landmark. The sensor in question is a well honed and high quality offering, the IMX 071 from Sony. This sensor is a great size and produces amazing resolution images to boot, and all in all can be said to be of exceptional capacity and quality.
