ZWO ASI 1600MM Monochrome CMOS Camera

The ZWO ASI 1600MM CMOS Monochrome Camera (non-cooled) has set a new standard of excellence in the world of Astrophotography.

As a planetary camera with USB 3.0 output, 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 have 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 Panasonic MN34230

At the Heart of the ZWO ASI 1600 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 approximately at 60-percent and it has a dynamic range between 9 to 12 stops (depending on gain settings). In other words, this sensor is the same size an 8300 sensor, has twice the megapixels, and is 30-percent more efficient in light gathering!

  • Diagonal 22.2mm
  • 16 Megapixel (4656 x 3520)
  • Very low read noise: 1.8 electrons at 150db gain & 3.8 electrons the lowest gain setting
  • Electronic shutter: no vibration caused by a with mechanical shutter

Astrophotography Performance

ASI1600 offers Low read noise, Low dark current, high dynamic range. Its build in 12-bit ADC but provides 12 stops of dynamic range, which is better than KAF8300!
