Used ZWO ASI-1600MC Color Cooled Astronomy Camera-UT-12200-SOLDThe ZWO ASI-1600MC Color Cooled version is a stunningly high-quality CMOS camera with powerful cooling and an incredibly powerful sensor for a CMOS this size. With a 16 megapixel resolution and CCD level clarity at a CMOS level cost, this camera takes affordable imaging to a new level. This immense and sustainable clarity is only refined to a greater level by the amazingly low read noise level of 1.2e-. What that means for you is that there is very little interference and a very slow rate of gain for that interference. It operates at an FPS of 28, which is incredible for an astronomy camera.
Your length of viewing time and potential viewing time is greatly extended by the Thermo-Electric cooling and built-in fan combo working in this cutting-edge new camera; the camera cooled to a maximum range of 40-45 C Degrees less than ambient temperature, which greatly works to prevent overheating. While it's still not impossible for overheating to occur if you over-strain the camera, the ASI-1600 can be used for extremely long sessions without overheating due to this effective cooling system and method. This is just another part of how adaptable this camera is; as you can set the cooling level anywhere up to that maximum of 40-45 C less than ambient- which means you can set it based on your environmental conditions as well as based on how long you intend to use the camera.
All in all, this is a CMOS Sensor using Camera that is highly affordable without any sacrifice in quality- operating at a whole new level compared to other, similar Cameras. Its range of exposure time is insane- ranging from a mere fraction of a second all the way up to just a few minutes over half an hour. What does that mean, exactly? It means that while yes, it can be used for planetary or lunar imaging- it's also fully capable of being utilized for long exposure deep space photography and imaging, as well as just about anything else you'd care to put it to. The technology at play here is leaps and bounds above what's considered standard in CMOS cameras, and it shows; to get the performance of a similar quality elsewhere, you'd have to double the price of this new camera, and in some areas, this camera might still outperform! Usable for a broad range of imaging purposes with great effectiveness, and extremely affordable, you'll find this a solid investment for a beginning in Astro-Photography!
