OPT is proud to sell ZWO products. Our in house salesmen use and sell ZWO products daily, and we pride ourselves on our knowledge of all ZWO products. We are glad to recommend them to new astroimagers and experienced alike because of their exemplary quality and consistent performance at a great value. ZWO is an established manufacturer and retailer for astronomy cameras and astronomy camera accessories, and they are constantly innovating to create new and more useful designs. They produce extremely high quality CMOS cameras that act as a low cost alternative to a CCD camera that doesn't lose out on quality.
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, with different cameras from ZWO performing exceptionally in a wide range of fields.
Not every ZWO 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. Due to being cheaper models, a non-cooled camera can also be a great tool to launch your astrophotgraphy dreams with!
ZWO provides a color version of all of their CMOS camera designs, perfect for the astronomer on the move. Easy to use and without any need for complicated processing, you can simply connect your Color CMOS camera 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.
ZWO offers monochrome versions of most of their CMOS camera designs, providing the highest level of image quality and clarity possible. Monochrome 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.
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 ZWO monochrome cameras, greatly simplifying the process of finding everything you need to capture top quality full color images regardless of your local conditions.
The filter wheels and filters provided by ZWO are perfectly suited for use with ZWO's own 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.
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. ZWO accessories are a great value, and provide convenient benefits for working with ZWO's cameras.
