  • The ZWO ASI 1600 Monochrome Cooled Camera is a dedicated DSO Imaging Camera that provides CCD quality at a CMOS price! Packaged here with both an 8 position 36mm sized filter wheel and matching LRGB, HA, SII, and OIII filter sets to slot in, this camera is a splendid choice for anyone looking to capture the deep reaches of the skies in photographic form!
  • The ZWO ASI 1600 Monochrome Cooled Camera can run without external power normally, but requires a a power supply of 12V at 2.5A to run the cooling system and support the filter wheel as well.
  • The ZWO ASI 1600 Monochrome Cooled Camera has a powerful two stage TEC cooling system that is capable of cooling of up to 45 degrees below the ambient temperature.


ZWO ASI 1600 Monochrome Cooled Camera

Behold ZWO's newest model of Monochrome camera! The ASI 1600 is yet another remarkable Astro-imaging camera from ZWO's ASI series, boasting remarkable specifications in all fields, just as has become expected of the ASI family of Cameras! Once more you can enjoy CCD quality at a CMOS price! This kit in particular comes packaged with ZWO's 7X36mm Filter Wheel and a complete LRGB Filter Set accompanied by HA, SII and OIII filters to slot inside of it, making this a ready to use CCD once you've adapted it for your telescope of choice. The built in USB hub that is part of the camera body also helps- and is designed so you can link the included EFW directly to it to power it via the same connection that is being used to power the camera itself! Speaking of power, the camera can run without external power in normal mode- that is, without cooling or the filter wheel in use. When using the cooling system, a power supply of 12V at 2.5A is recommended. A battery operating anywhere in the range of 9-15V is also acceptable.

As for the cooling system itself? It's a regulated two stage Thermoelectric Cooling System, capable of pushing at maximum 40 to 45 degrees below the ambient temperature. The Camera itself operates optimally within the temperature range of -5°C—45°, and is best stored within the temperature range of -20°C—60°C. This powerful cooling system complements the naturally low read noise of the camera to further refine the quality of images produced- aiding ZWO in continuing to provide CCD quality at CMOS prices. And that's just one example of how each individual part of this top notch astronomy camera comes together to produce a truly exemplary whole!

The USB 3.0 interface and USB 2.0 compatibility are both features that ensure extreme highspeed image download times, making it a breeze to move your images from the camera to your computer for post processing. This also ensures a wide range of compatibility due to the dual compatibility between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. The USB Hub these connections are located on is conveniently placed at the rear of the Camera for ease of accessibility, positioned perfectly to keep all your cables linking to the same area, helping minimize the wide spread of clutter in your imaging train.

ZWO calls the ASI 1600 their first dedicated DSO imaging camera, but also declares it to be suitable for planetary imaging as well if you prefer. Either way you choose to utilize it, the 1600 is sure to please you with it's low read noise, high resolution, and potent cooling that helps keep the read noise low as possible. And in the package here provided, it's ready to let you get to capturing the highest quality possible full color images, one exposure and one filter at a time! Just find a suitable telescope and adapters, and you'll be ready to go!

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Which ZWO filter wheel is this?
Are there any binning of pixels in the software? If yes, what ratios?
What power packs can be used?
Can I use the Celestron power tank 17?
What is the flange focal distance of this, including the filterwheel? In other words, the distance from the OTA side of the filter wheel to the the sensor inside the camera (needed for focal reducer calculations).
Are these 36mm filters the "new design" like the smaller 1.25" redesigned to match the ASI1600 specifically? Also are they (the 36mm) parfocal? Thanks,
When do you expect to ship this item?
You still have not answered the question about the filters for the new 36mm filter wheel. Are these filters newly made to match the ZWO ASI1600MM-C camera - just like the smaller ones claim to be remade to match this camera?
What are the bandpasses for the narrowband filters that come in this set? H-alpha? SII? and OIII?
What are the bandpasses for the narrowband filters that come in this set? Do the RGB filters include the usual "gap" to help eliminate light pollution? Thanks!
What is the bit depth of this camera?
