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.
The ASI183MC camera series has a large optical size of 1″ (inch) and is the most sensitive camera in ZWO history.
In the astronomic application field, the Sony IMX183CQJ-J (color) sensor uses a very high sensitivity back-illuminated structure with high resolution 2.4 μm square unit pixel.
The ASI183 camera also utilizes firmware features to minimize amplifier glow for maximum performance in astrophotography.
