The ASI2600MM Pro uses Sony’s latest back-illuminated IMX571 APS-C format sensor with a native 16-bit Analogue to Digital Converter (ADC). It has an impressive range of features that make it a popular choice for professional astrophotographers.

As a flag ship camera the 2600 offers Amazing Craftsmanship, a lightweight body and solid image quality.


Some of the features include:

  • APS-C format (28.3 mm diagonal) with 3.76 um pixel size
  • Native 16-bit ADC– giving high dynamic range of 14 stops
  • A high 50ke- full well capacity – helping to reduce the issue of for example saturated stars
  • 26-megapixel sensor with 4944 x 3284 pixels – plenty of detail can be captured in high resolution
  • Ultra-low 0 e- readout noise, bringing out more details in your images with improved dynamic range
  • Very low read noise of 1.0 – 3.3 e-at 24 dB gain – bringing out more details in your images with improved dynamic range
  • Polyimide anti dew heater


Why Monochrome?

A monochrome astrophotography camera can collect more signal (light) than a color camera can. (3 times as much, to be exact).

All the Light wells on a camera chip are monochrome. They can’t themselves differentiate between red, green or blue photons.

The Bayer filter array found in a color camera reduces the amount of overall light recorded on your image.
