Product Details

  • The ZWO ASI120MM Mini is a top-notch monochrome guide camera, well-suited for both planetary imaging and acting as a guider to amplify the usefulness of other astronomy instruments. Despite being qualified as a 'miniature' camera, it still operates at a high level of performance; with a peak QE over 75%, a typical read noise of only 4.0e, a pixel array of 1280 x 960, and a pixel size of only 3.75 micrometers, it qualifies as a powerhouse despite its small size. It achieves all of this while presenting a small and slender profile, taking up a minimum of space in your imaging train. The interface for this camera is a Type C USB 2.0 port, similar to that found in several mobile phone types.

It works

As with all new astronomy gear it’s been poor seeing since I received the ZWO ASI120mm. I did play with it a bit and can say it worked great.

Using with Star Adventurer for Guiding

The ZWO ASI120MM Mini the the 30mm f/4 Mini Guide Scope works awesome for help with guiding the Star Adventurer to keep the stars from trailing with a longer focal length lens. Shipping was quick and packaged very well. No regrets purchasing from OPT.

OPT was super fast to get this shipped out.

The ZWO cam works good so far. I need to get it working with PHD2 first with out it having RA drift issues.
