Cooled Cameras:

ZWO offers a wide range of cooled CMOS cameras perfect for astrophotography; the cooling systems on these cameras allow for long exposure times without issue, and are easy to power through the inbuilt USB ports. The cooled models are ideal for extended imaging sessions of a wide range of targets.

Non-Cooled Cameras:

Not every camera has a cooling system though; most ZWO cameras are available in either a cooled or non-cooled version. The non-cooled versions are cheaper, providing a stellar value for anyone whose needs don't lead them to require long exposure times, making the perfect for autoguiding and planetary imaging.

Color Cameras:

ZWO provides a color version of all of their CMOS astronomy camera designs, they are perfect for the astronomer on the move. Easy to use and without any need for complicated processing, you can simply connect your  to a telescope system and capture full color images. It's by far the easiest way to enjoy astrophotography; while you still need to process your images in the end, it's a much simpler process than the multi-filter setup required for a Monochrome Camera.

Monochrome Cameras:

ZWO offers monochrome versions of most of their CMOS camera designs, providing the highest level of image quality and clarity possible. Monochrome astronomy cameras capture far more data than their color counterparts, but require more processing and the addition of a set of filters to produce colorized images. These cameras are great for anyone looking to capture the highest possible resolution images of the night sky. 

Camera Kits:

ZWO packages together full kits centered around some of their higher end cameras. These kits include filters and a filter wheel to accompany high end monochrome cameras, greatly simplifying the process of finding everything you need to capture top quality full color images regardless of your local conditions.

ZWO Filters & Filter Wheel

 

Filters and Filter Wheels:

The filter wheels and filters made by ZWO are perfectly suited for use with their monochrome cameras. They match together cleanly and easily for maximum efficiency and effectiveness, allowing your monochrome cameras to pierce light pollution barriers and take stunning high resolution full color images.

Accessories:

ZWO manufactures and supplies a range of accessories meant primarily for their own cameras, but capable of interface with other similar models. These accessories range from high efficiency power supplies to atmospheric diffraction correctors to simple adapters. These accessories are a great value, and provide convenient benefits for working with any astronomy camera.
