The ASI183 line of cameras are ZWO’s most sensitive cameras in history to date. It has a peak QE of 84% made possible by a back illuminated sensor. The small pixels with large well depth, low read noise, and high QE make this camera most suitable for imaging at short focal lengths without sacrificing dynamic range or sensitivity. The Pro version also features deep cooling for low thermal noise when taking long exposures and a data buffer for consistent data transfer   DDR Memory Buffer: The ZWO ASI183MM Pro Camera features a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer to help improve data transfer reliability and produces minimal amp-glow caused by the slow transfer speeds.  Astrophotography performance: The ASI183 cameras has a very large full well capacity (15000e) for such small pixel size, 1.6e read noise @ 30DB, and 12stops dynamic range @ Gain=0. The ASI183 cameras also utilize firmware features to minimize amp-glow for maximum performance in astrophotography.     USB 3.0 Port & USB2.0 Hub: USB 3.0 Port: Provides 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI183 Pro to run at 19 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 19 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution(20.18Mega). USB 2.0 Hub: Easily compatible with various accessories (filter wheel, guide camera, electronic focuser) The USB hub can also be powered by an external power source. Includes 2 short 0.5m USB 2.0 cables.   Cooling system: The camera has a 2-stage TEC cooling system that enables deep cooling (40°C to 45°C below surroundings). This cooler will require an external power supply ot 9-15V batteries which are not included with the camera.   Recommended Accessories ZWO 12V 5A Power Adapter for Cooled Cameras Used to power your compatible ZWO cooled camera or electronic device. ZWO Desiccant Tablets for Cooled Cameras Replace used dessicant tablets as required with the ZWO Dessicant Tablets for Cooled Cameras to keep your cooled camera functioning optimally.   M48 T-Thread Spacer Ring Kit Add a M48-T-Thread Spacer Ring Kit to adjust backfocus spacing as required. Comes with 7 convenient sizes. ZWO 7 Position 2-inch Electronic Filter Wheel Add 7 of your favourite filters into an electronic filter wheel to swap between them automatically. Suitable for 2" threaded filters.      About ZWO Optical Astrophotography has never been easier. Established in 2011, ZWO Optical is a fast-growing global astroimaging camera powerhouse based in Suzhou China. They focus on building and innovating ground-breaking CMOS cameras such as the iconic ZWO ASI120MM Monochrome CMOS camera (the first-ever planetary CMOS camera to beat a CCD in the early 2010s). ZWO continues to pioneer new astrophotography technology with revolutionary features to capture exceptional quality of images of space that will last you a lifetime. Today, ZWO cameras are recognised by every passionate astrophotographer and are available in over 25 countries internationally. Product Code: ZWO-ASI183MM-P
