Introducing the new ZWO ASI385MC Astronomy Camera
The ZWO ASI385MC is here. With Sony’s IMX385 sensor it’s essentially the big brother of the outrageously popular ASI224MC.
1936 x 1096 sensor array with 3.75µm pixels. Amazingly low read noise (as low as 0.7e and just 1.2e at unity gain).
QE Peak > 80% and outstanding sensitivity in the red and near IR.
It also shares the same quirk as the ASI224MC, performing like a monochrome camera past 850nm where each individual filter of the Bayer array shares nearly identical transmission.
ASI385MC offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, high dynamic range, QE peak >80%, AR protective window and much more.
USB 3.0 Port & ST4 Port
USB 3.0 Port: can provide 5Gb bandwidth to let ASI385 run at 67 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 120 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution(2.13Mega).
ST4 Port: can be used connect with auto guide port of mount, for guiding.
