ZWO ASI1600MM Pro 1.25" CMOS Camera Kit

ASI1600MM Pro Cooled Monochrome Camera

Versatile | Compact | Exceptional Image Quality

The ZWO ASI1600MM Pro is a Micro Four Thirds camera packed with features that help you produce world-class images.

ASI1600MM Pro Cooled Monochrome Camera Features

  • Exceptional noise reduction technology and video capabilities.
  • The 1600 Pro is ideal for photographing: Nebulae, galaxies, planets, solar images, lunar images, and more.
  • USB 3.0 Port allows your camera to run at 14.7 fps at base through its 5 GB bandwidth.
  • USB 2.0 Hub attach various accessories for better cable management.
  • Two-stage cooling system for long exposure shots. 

ASI1600 Image Quality

The ZWO ASI1600 has a built-in 12-bit ADC but can provide over 12 stops of dynamic range! Which means it can capture a wider tonal range a KAF-8300 sensor. The Camera inherently has a much lower read noise, at a 0 gain setting and will further decrease the higher the gain.

It also includes an upgraded PCB board with a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer. Slow data transmission can cause amp-glow around your image, so the DDR memory buffer takes care of that for you.

ZWO ASI Short Back Focus

Most Adaptable Camera Body

Most ZWO cooled cameras have a short back focus, making them very adaptable to almost any telescope system. The ZWO ASI 1600 has a back focus of 6.5 mm! Check the ZWO Pro Back Focus Chart for the best configurations.

8 Position Filter Wheel

The ZWO EFW8 can hold up to eight 1.25-inch mounted or 31 mm unmounted filters. The 31 mm filters are held in place with included set screws and washers.

The EFW8 body is CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum and is black anodized. It is sturdy and reliable, yet weighs just 14 ounces and is 20 mm thick! Inside, an NPM stepper motor is used to rotate the carousel in any direction. The EFW8 is powered via USB and includes a cable that can be plugged into the USB2.0 hub of ZWO cooled cameras.


ZWO Narrowband Set

Complete Filter Set

Switch between each filter to gather colorful variations of light resulting in different vivid images! Every ZWO 1600 Kit comes with a set of LRB filters and a complete set of 7-nanometer narrowband filters (Ha, SII and OIII). Finely polished down to an optical accuracy of one-fourth wave, the filters provide zero apparent optical distortion from the filters. To avoid vignetting, use this kit with optical systems no faster than f/8.

Important Notice Regarding Power Supply

Please be aware that this cooled ZWO camera DOES NOT come with a power supply, but one is required to run cooler on the camera. We recommend picking up the ZWO AC Power Supply or choose from one of the many portable power supplies we offer.

ASI1600MM-Pro - i am glad i switched to it

Coming from DSLR and OSC cooled camera, changing to ASI1600MM-Pro has been a huge improvement. Pre-processing way easier, and post-processing not much of a big deal, as instead many people kept saying would have been more time consuming.

Awesome Camera

Bit of a learning curve if you are new to cooled monochrome cameras as there are extra steps to imaging but you will be rewarded with excellent quality images.
