    The ZWO ASI294MC is built upon the fantastic capabilities of the popular ASI1600.

    The ZWO ASI294MC Pro Colour Astronomy CMOS Camera features a back-illuminated, highly sensitive Sony's IMX294 sensor that produces a 4k output even at 120FPS.

    ZWO ASI294MC Pro Specifications


    Exceptional low-illumination performance of SNR1s: 0.14 lx is realized by use of a large-size optical system and by expanding the area per pixel to 4.63 µm. This makes the IMX294CJK ideal for astronomic camera market applications that require low-illumination performance.


    14bit ADC w/ 13 stops DR

    The ASI294 has a 14bit ADC unit which allows it to achieve 13 stops of dynamic range. Such characteristic is excellent for deep sky imaging, which always needs a high dynamic range. The ASI294 has even more dynamic range than the ASI1600 with its 13 stops


    HCG Mode (high conversion gain)

    ZWO ASI294MC's HCG mode (which reduces read noise to even lower levels at higher gain without loss to dynamic range) is automatically enabled when the gain setting rises above 120. With this mode, read noise will drop under 2e- while dynamic range remains at 13 stops.

    The ASI294MC Pro has the same sturdy mechanics and elegant design as the ASI1600 Pro. ZWO's recognisable sleek hot-rod red housing not only protects the sensor chamber but works incredibly well in wet and humid environments without dew problems.
