Used ZWO ASI178MM Cooled Monochrome Camera - UT-11597 - SOLD

This ZWO ASI178MM Cooled Astronomy Camera includes the back-illuminated 6.4M resolution Sony IMX178 image sensor. This 1/1.8 inch CMOS sensor has a 3096 x 2080 pixel array and a 2.4 micrometer square pixel size. With a 14-bit ADC, extremely low read noise of 2.2e, and superior sensitivity combine to make the ZWO ASI178MM an excellent camera for both astronomy and microscopy, excelling in deep sky imaging.

This cooled version incorporates active TEC temperature control for the ability to cool the sensor to 35C to 40C degrees below ambient. This enhanced cooling control offers the best image stability for longer imaging sessions.
