ZWO ASI183MM USB3.0 Monochrome Astronomy Camera

SKU: ZWO-ASI183MM

Be the first to review this product

The ASI183MM is amongst ZWO’s most sensitive cameras in history. 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.

Features of ZWO ASI183MM

Sensor: 

The ASI183MC is ZWO's most sensitive camera to date which is made possible due to a back iluminated sensor. It comes with a IMX183CLK-J/CQJ-J sensor. It has a diagonal of 15.86 mm and an approximately 20.48M-Effective Pixel Monochrome/Color CMOS Image Sensor

High-Speed and High-Picture-Quality Rolling Shutter-Type Back-Illuminated CMOS Image Sensors:

The ASI183 uses Sony's IMX183CLK-J (monochrome) and IMX183CQJ-J (color) sensors which has a very high sensitivity back-illuminated structure with high resolution 2.4 μm square unit pixel. The optical size is 1 inch.


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

High Speed: 

The camera's fast FPS is ideal for both solar (white light) and lunar imaging. as well as for live viewing/EAA (electronically assisted astronomy).The high speed readout may also be used for real-time focusing, true lucky imaging of double stars (and other small objects), planetary imaging of the major planets in the solar system, and much more.

*Note: Some users find that this IMX183 sensor might have some grid pattern noise when do Ha solar imaging,  hence please take the flat frame for calibration(add a barlow lens to take flat frames). We recommend the ASI1600/ASI174 mono camera for Ha solar imaging.

High QE:

The camera uses Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R technology, giving it excellent deep sky performance. ASI183 QE peak reaches a remarkable 84%. In Ha channel, QE is still over 60%.

A high QE means that the majority of the light that enters your telescope and reaches the sensor is actually used. With 84% peak Q.E. and no less than approximately 50% within the visible spectrum, the ASI183 will utilize a high percentage of the light that reaches it, significantly improving your signal quality.

USB 3.0 Port & ST4 Port:

USB 3.0 Port: Provide 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI183 to run at 19 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 19 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution(20.18Mega)
ST4 Port: Can be used connect with auto guide port of mount, for guiding.
