    ZWO ASI2600MC Duo Specifications

     

    The main sensor uses the Sony IMX571 with a 16-bit ADC and 14 stops dynamic range, producing stunning and natural colour transitions. It also has a small pixel size and a full well capacity of 80ke. The guide sensor is the Type 1/1.8 SC2210 with excellent NIR sensitivity, featuring high sensitivity, low readout noise, and a 1920x1080 pixel array.

    One USB cable is all you need to control the ZWO ASI2600MC Duo Astroimaging Camera, reducing cable clutter and improving setup speed. With an optional ZWO M54 Tilter, you can adjust the camera sensor tilt from the rear of the camera without removing the tilt plate. 

    Thanks to Sony STARVIS technology, the ZWO ASI2600MC Duo Astroimaging Camera reduces noise and improves image quality. It features a native 16-bit ADC, which provides a dynamic range of 14 stops for sharper and more contrasted images. Additionally, the camera has a maximum FPS of 15 in RAW 8 mode and extended full well mode up to 80ke.

    The ZWO ASI2600MC Duo Astroimaging Camera is also equipped with a 512MB DDR3 buffer and USB 3.0 for stable and secure data transmission. It features zero-amp glow circuitry, which eliminates weak infrared light sources and ensures high-gain, long-exposure imaging without the issue of amp glow.

    The two-stage TEC cooling system of the ASI2600MC Duo reduces the sensor's temperature to 35 degrees Celsius below ambient temperature,
    which reduces dark current generation and sensor noise. Additionally, the camera has an anti-dew heater to prevent dew or icing issues, and you can turn it off anytime to save power.
