ZWO ASI183MM Pro Astrophotography Camera
I've had the camera for two weeks now, along with a number of clear nights. The images it produces are clear and detailed and I am thoroughly enjoying this new addition to my astrophotography rig. It pairs very nicely with my William Optics RedCat 51.
I've been using both the MM and MC versions of the ASI183 Pro camera with two fast (f/4.7) scopes and the image scale with this 2.4µm pixel size is a perfect match up for them or any focal length around 300mm - 500mm. To me, the sensor' only shortfall is the relatively shallow well depth but that can easily be compensated for by controlling exposure length. Some folks may take pause at some of this sensor' specs (compared to say the 6200 or 2600) but with attention to sub calibration those concerns are a moot point. Also, I mainly image DSOs but have begun doing some solar and planetary work with this camera and while not as speedy as the ASI290 or ASI462 I am finding that the IMX183 sensor performs very well making this camera truly multifunctional.

This is the best camera I have ever used. This camera is far superior to the asi 2600mm. My exposures are cut down to 3x5min each channel with great results.
I was finally able to get clear skies after all the new gear arrived and it works great! This camera is really good and I am enjoying the new challenge of capturing data with multiple filters. Don't be turned off by the amp glow it processes right out with propper Darks, Lights, and Bias files. Looking forward to the Nebula as Galaxies are a little small in my FOV with my RedCat. Or maybe it's time I buy a bigger scope lol I am sure OPT will like that :D

Shipping and product excellently
An excellent camera for the money. I got this to fill a dual purpose of planetary and deep-sky and it does the job. Calibration will be difficult, even with a full set of frames the amp glow pattern is still partially visible if an image is stretched very hard.
