ZWO ASI224MC-C Cooled Colour

$899.00

The brand new cooled ZWO ASI224MC-C Colour Camera allows the sensor to be cooled to 35C to 40C degrees below ambient!

ZWO’s new ASI 224MC-C has a 1.2 Mega pixel sensor IMX224 with SONY Exmor and  NIR Technology.
The 2 particularly interesting attributes of this camera are:

  • Extremely low read noise (0.75e – 1.5 e) – this allows you to stack many short exposures without read noise adding significantly to the overall noise of the image.
  • High sensitivity especially in IR range – allowing the use of IR pass filters to minimise atmospheric seeing problems.

Very suitable for astronomy planetary and small DSO imaging.

Note that spectral sensitivity is equal in RGB channels from ~830nm onward allowing the use of the ZWO IR850 IR pass filter to good effect.

Description

The brand new cooled ZWO ASI224MC-C Colour Camera allows the sensor to be cooled to 35C to 40C degrees below ambient! ZWO ASI224MC-C Cooled has a 1/3″ sensor with and 1.2M pixels. IMX224 with SONY Exmor and NIR Technology.  Extremely low read noise (1.5 e) and high sensitivity especially in IR range makes the ASI224MC-C ideal for planetary and small DSO imaging.

The ZWO ASI224MC-C camera has excellent sensitivity in the red and IR regions. Response of each pixel is identical after ~850nm. The ASI224MC-C can be used to capture “monochrome” data with the use of an IR850 pass filter.

The ZWO ASI224MC-C cooled camera has exceptionally low read noise rivalling that of EMCCD and sCMOS.
The opportunities for “lucky imaging” are outstanding with a very low penalty when stacking large numbers of very short exposures.
This makes the ASI224MC-C an excellent camera for small detailed DSO targes such as planetary nebulae.
