Description

Details

ZWO ASI224MC Color Astronomy Camera


The ZWO ASI224MC Color Astronomy Camera houses a 1/3" 1.2 Mega Pixel Sony IMX224 imaging sensor with Exmor and NIR technology. This relatively small sensor has very low read noise (1.5 e), high sensitivity in NIR, and the possibility for high frame rates, making this CMOS camera an excellent choice for planetary imagers who want nothing but the highest quality.

Although this camera is best suited for planetary imaging, it can also be used for image deep sky objects up to a fixed level as it supports a maximum exposure time of up to 1000 seconds.

Since you won't have to devote time to filter or filter wheel concerns, imaging with the ZWO ASI224MC Color Camera is a simple procedure. If you don't mind making a small concession, this is one of the best color planetary imaging cameras currently available in this price range, and it could probably outshine many of the more costlier cameras also.
