ZWO ASI 1600 Monochrome Cooled Camera Kit With EFW 8x1.25 & Filters - DiscontinuedBehold ZWO's newest model of Monochrome camera! The ASI 1600 is yet another remarkable Astro-imaging camera from ZWO's ASI series, boasting remarkable specifications in all fields, just as has become expected of the ASI family of Cameras! Once more you can enjoy CCD quality at a CMOS price! This kit in particular comes packaged with ZWO's 7x36 Filter Wheel and an LRGB Filter Set to slot inside of it, making this a ready to use CCD once you've adapted it for your telescope of choice. The built in USB hub that is part of the camera body also helps- and is designed so you can link the included EFW directly to it to power it via the same connection that is being used to power the camera itself! Speaking of power, the camera can run without external power in normal mode- that is, without cooling or the filter wheel in use. When using the cooling system, a power supply of 12V at 2.5A is recommended. A battery operating anywhere in the range of 9 to 15V is also acceptable.
As for the cooling system itself? It's a regulated two stage Thermoelectric Cooling System, capable of pushing at maximum 40 to 45 degrees C below the ambient temperature. The Camera itself operates optimally within the temperature range of -5 degrees C to -45 degrees C, and is best stored within the temperature range of -20 degrees C to -60 degrees C. This powerful cooling system complements the naturally low read noise of the camera to further refine the quality of images produced- aiding ZWO in continuing to provide CCD quality at CMOS prices. And that's just one example of how each individual part of this top-notch astronomy camera comes together to produce a truly exemplary whole!
The USB 3.0 interface and USB 2.0 compatibility are both features that ensure extreme highspeed image download times, making it a breeze to move your images from the camera to your computer for post-processing. This also ensures a wide range of compatibility due to the dual compatibility between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. The USB Hub these connections are located on is conveniently placed at the rear of the Camera for ease of accessibility, positioned perfectly to keep all your cables linking to the same area, helping minimize the widespread of clutter in your imaging train.
ZWO calls the ASI 1600 their first dedicated DSO imaging camera but also declares it to be suitable for planetary imaging as well if you prefer. Either way, you choose to utilize it, the ASI 1600 is sure to please you with its low read noise, high resolution, and potent cooling that helps keep the read noise low as possible. And in the package here provided, it's ready to let you get to capture the highest quality possible full-color images, one exposure and one filter at a time! Just find a suitable telescope and adapters, and you'll be ready to go!
