VARIETY PACKAGED INTO ONE KIT FOR READY-TO-GO ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY
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 Four Thirds format. The peak quantum efficiency of this CMOS detector is at an impressive 60% and has a dynamic range of 9 to 12.5 stops, depending on gain settings. It has twice the megapixels, and is 30% more efficient than the 8300! Produce vivid and high-contrast images with the ZWO ASI1600 Pro.
As a deep space camera, the ASI 1600 can reach temperatures 45-degrees centigrade below the ambient temperature bringing the thermal noise in your images down to a minimum. With a read noise of 1.2 to 3.8 electrons (depending on gain settings), long exposures aren’t always necessary. When shooting deep space images at full resolution this camera pairs exceptionally well with telescopes that are 300 mm to 1,000 mm in focal length, and when binned at 2x2, telescopes that are 1,000 mm to 2,000 mm in focal length.
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 a 1350 mm focal length! If you’re interested in speed shooting planets like Jupiter and Saturn, the ASI 1600 clocks out at 192.4 frames per second at 320x240 resolution!
ZWO ASI 1600 PRO MINI MONOCHROME COOLED CMOS TELESCOPE CAMERA KIT FEATURES
The ZWO Electronic Filter Wheel Mini
- Fits 5 filters.
- Rotates in either direction.
- Accepts either the 1.25-inch or 31 mm sizes.
- Smallest and most lightweight 1.25-inch electronic filter wheel at only 300 g (0.66-pounds).
- Aircraft-grade aluminum body.
- 20 mm deep design.
- Powered up by just one USB cable.
- Its max power consumption is around 120ma at 5V.
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.
Filter Thickness: 5.5 mm plus 3.5 mm thread.
Filter Thread: M28.5x0.6
OPT Product Number: ZWO-ASI1600MMP-M1
