ZWO ASI183MC Colour USB Camera

SKU: ASI183MC Categories: , ,

The ASI 183 MC Colour USB Camera offers high quality performance for planetary and lunar imaging.

With the fast frames per second (FPS) rate, the 183MC can be used in solar and lunar imaging, as well as for live viewing/Electronically Assisted Astronomy (EAA).

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.

It is not recommended for primarily deep space photography, AOC suggest a fan cooled model for all deep space object long exposure photography.
