ASI1600MM Pro Camera, Filters, and
The Mini EFW which Holds 5 Filters!
ZWO ASI 1600 Pro Mini Monochrome Cooled CMOS Telescope Camera Kit
The ASI 1600 Pro Mini and Filter Wheel Kit 1 with 1.25-Inch LRGB Filters by ZWO:
ZWO's ASI 1600 Pro Mini Kit 1 has set a new standard of Excellence in the world of Astrophotography. Whether you are interested in deep space astrophotography or Lunar/Planetary/solar Imaging, this camera will be able to handle it all. There are not many camera systems that can do what ASI 1600 Pro can do.
At the Heart of the ZWO ASI 1600 Pro is the Panasonic MN34230 CMOS Sensor which is known for its exceptional light gathering efficiency, low read noise, and High resolution. The sensor will record up to 16 megapixel images on a Micro 4/3rds format. The peak quantum efficiently of this CMOS detector is impressively at 60-percent has a dynamic range of 9 to 12.5 stops depending on gain settings. In other words, this sensor is the same size camera with a KAF-8300 sensor, has twice the megapixels, and 30-percent more efficient than the 8300!
As a deep space camera, the ASI 1600 doesn’t hold back any punches. This Pro version can reach temperatures 45-degrees Centigrade below the ambient temperature which brings the thermal noise in your images down to a minimum. You can take pictures for up to 33 minutes with this camera, but with a read noise of 1.2 to 3.8 electrons (depending on gain settings), exposures that long is rarely necessary. When shooting deep space images at full resolution this camera pairs very exceptionally well with telescopes 300 mm to 1,000 mm in focal length, and when binned 2x2, telescopes 1,000 mm to 2,000 mm.
As a planetary camera, no other camera system can beat the ASI 1600's versatility. For solar imaging, this camera can record full 16 mp videos at 23 frames per second and capture the entire sun with 1350 mm focal length! If you’re the kind of maverick that has a need for speed shooting planets like Jupiter and Saturn, the ASI 1600 clocks out at 192.4 frames per second at 320x240 resolution!
When it comes to versatility, look no further than ZWO ASI 1600 Camera.
The ZWO Electronic Filter Wheel mini fits 5 filters at either the 1.25-inch or 31 mm sizes. It is the smallest and most lightweight 1.25-inch Electronic Filter Wheel at only 300 g (0.66-pounds). The body is CNC machined from a full block of aircraft grade aluminum. The very thin design is only 20 mm deep.
The EFWmini has a step motor at its heart produced by NPM, giving it a trustworthy quality and reliability. The wheel can be rotated in both clockwise and counter clockwise directions for filter selection. Only one USB cable is enough to power up the EFWmini. Its max power consumption is around 120ma at 5V, so you can connect it from the USB2.0 hub of ZWO cooled cameras.
The distance between the filter and sensor is around 10 mm when connected to an ASI1600 camera, so 1.25-inch filters won't have vignetting up to f/5 and 31 mm filters up to f/2.
The New LRGB filters have been optimized for the ASI1600 camera to approximately equalize the flux of the mono sensor and will offer nearly 1:1:1 RGB color balance. They have better transmission, better coating, and better color separation.
