ZWO ASI585MC USB3.0 Colour Astronomy Camera
The ZWO ASI585MC Colour Astronomy Camera uses a Sony IMX585 CMOS sensor. The camera uses a large sensor format of 1/1.2" and a resolution of 3840 x2160 pixels. A unique feature of this planetary camera is that has ZERO amp glow. The pixel size is 2.9um*2.9um. The frame rate is 46.9 fps in 12-bit mode and the readout noise is super low.
The sensor is 8.29MP which is the same pixel size as the ASI462MC but is 4 times the resolution!
The 1/1.2" large sensor is ideal for Lunar and Solar imaging.
It also has the ability to also be used as an all-sky camera to observe cloud cover, rain and meteors.
Starvis 2 Technology:
One of the essential features of security cameras is the imaging ability that delivers clear images in dark locations. Sony’s image sensors with STARVIS/STARVIS 2 technology have a sensitivity well above that of the human eye. They deliver excellent performance in the low- illumination monitoring as they not only capture the targets in dark places but even visualize their textures clearly.
The ASI585MC replaces the ASI485MC. The differences between the two models are the ASI585MC has zero amp glow and a larger full well depth.
Large Full Well Depth:
The back-illuminated sensor structure and advanced pixel technology mean that the camera has a very low readout noise and a full well depth. In low light, the camera captures clear images of celestial objects.
Low read noise, high dynamic range
The camera has a built-in HCG mode, this reduces the readout noise at high gain and allows the camera to maintain high dynamic range as it does with low dynamic gain. When the gain is 150, the HCG mode is turned on and the dynamic range level reaches 12 bit. The readout noise is as low as 0.8e
The peak of QE is 91%
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.
