ZWO ASI174MC Color CMOS Astronomy Camera - Cooled
When it comes to imaging cameras with advanced capabilities, the ZWO ASI174MC Color CMOS Camera seems like a natural progression from the ASI120MC-S. State-of-the-art features include an ST-4 guide port, high speed USB 3.0 port, standard 2 inch M42 x 0.75 internal thread interface, 0.25 inch tripod thread mount on the rear, and an AR window. However, it's the Sony IMX174 color CMOS sensor that separates the ASI174MM from previous ASI models. The IMX174 has a lot of advantages when taking high quality solar, lunar, planetary, and deep sky object imaging into consideration.
This cooled version incorporates active TEC temperature control for the ability to cool the sensor to 35C to 40C degrees below ambient. This enhanced cooling control offers the best image stability for longer imaging sessions.

I read what is included with this camera, but did not see any mention of a power supply, or power cord. Is there a power supply or cord included, or do you need to purchase one separately, and if so, what is needed. I would prefer a power supply that
Thanks for your question, Caley. The manufacturer states that this camera does not come with a power supply. They recommend a 12v @ 2.5A. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to give us a call as we are always happy to help.
I understand that the ASI174MC-C has a more advanced cooling system than the ASI174MC. So What is the difference in terms of performance between the two? Thanks Michel
It is difficult to say exactly how much better an uncooled camera vs a cooled camera would because there are several factors that would need to be accounted for. As a rule of thumb, every six degrees a sensor is cooled the thermal noise is cut in half. Th
