    Sony IMX183CQJ-J CMOS Sensor:

    • The Sony IMX183CQJ-J (color) CMOS Sensor offers a higher resolution, high quantum efficiency, and just as efficient signal to noise ratios as its older brother theASI 1600.
    • These sensors can record 20.2-megapixel video at 19 frames per second, which is 48% more resolution than Ultra High Definition 4k video!
    • These sensors offer 12 stops of dynamic range when the gain settings are at 0 and offer a low read noise 1.6 electrons when the gain is set at 30DB. The size of the sensor is approximately 15.9 mm, the same as most Micro Four Thirds cameras. 
    • The sensor is also back-illuminated for higher QE.

     High Quantum Efficiency: 

    • The camera has a peak EQ 84%, the H-alpha emission line is recorded at 60% and doesn't record less than 50% in the visible spectrum.

     High-Speed Video Recording:

    • The sensor’s speed gives it the ability to focus in real time and get the most data possible for your Solar and Planetary imaging setups.

      Not Too Happy

      I was surprised to get my ZWO ASI183 color camera and find that only loaded as a ZWO ASI183 mono camera. I down loaded the drivers that the quick setup called for but the camera only loaded in mono. The camera came with no drivers. I contacted OPT and was directed to contact ZWO. I did. The problem with ZWO is that they are in a +8 time zone and I am in a -6 time zone. This time zone difference too 2 nights for use to get on line at the same time. ZWO was pleasant and quickly loaded the proper firmware so the camera then loaded as a color camera. Had the proper firmware been loaded in the beginning I would not have had to contact OPT or ZWO to fix a problem that should have not happened.
