ASI1600MM Pro Astronomy Camera
ASI1600 Pro camera includes a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer to help improve data transfer reliability. Additionally, the use of a memory buffer minimizes amp-glow, which is caused by the slow transfer speeds when the camera is used with a USB 2.0 port.
ASI1600 Pro offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, low dark current and high dynamic range.
ASI1600 builds in a 12bit ADC, but can provide 12.5 stops dynamic range which is even better than KAF8300 due to its super low read noise.
There are four screws that seal the sensor chamber. The camera design has been extensively tested and is very stable.
Even when used in higher humidity environments, ASI1600 Pro will still works fine without dew problems.
ASI1600 Pro has a 2 stage TEC cooling system to enable very deep cooling (40°C-45°C below ambient). The cooler requires an external power supply, which is not included with the camera.
1.25″ mini Electronic Filter Wheel
Only 300g! Smaller than your hand. Very thin design, 20mm width. The body is CNC machined from a full block of aircraft grade aluminium.
The step motor is the heart of the EFWmini, which is made by NPM from Japan. You can trust its quality and relability.
Supports both 5 x 1.25″ filters or 5 x 31mm filters. The Electronic Filter Wheel can be rotated in both counter clockwise or clockwise direction for filter selection.
One USB cable is enough to power up the EFW, the max power consumption is around 120ma@5V, so you can connect it from the USB2.0 hub of ZWO cooled cameras.
The distance between the filter and sensor is aroucnd 10mm when you connect it to ASI1600.
1.25″ filters won’t have vignetting with up to F/5 focal ratio scopes, and 31mm filters won’t have vignetting up to F/2 lenses.
1.25″ new LRGB Filter Set
The new ZWO LRGB Filters are designed to approximately equalise the flux of the ASI1600 mono sensor.
Better transmission, better coating, better colour separation.
Thickness: 5.5mm+3.5mm (thread)
The RGB colour combination weights will be approximately 1:1:1
- Fine optical polish to ensure accurate 1/4 wavefront
- More than 92% transmission at passband
- Infrared wavelength 700-1100nm cut-off
- Precision off-band blocking
- Multi-layer anti-reflection coating
- Small spectral “gap” to minimize effect of light pollution
- More parfocal – thickness 1.9+/-0.03 mm
