ZWO ASI185MC Color Astronomy Camera - Cooled-Discontinued

Housing a Sony IMX185 sensor, with 2.3M 3.5um pixels in a 1944 x 1224 format, the ZWO imaging camera is a beautiful piece of work. The IMX185 sensor housed inside this device has an extremely low read noise of 3.3e, and is extremely sensitive- especially in the near infrared spectrum. Compared to other models such as the ASI224MC, the ZWO ASI185MC color camera has a larger sensor with the same size pixels, and a slight but noticeable increase in read noise over the other model. Superb at any astronomical imaging application imaginable, the ZWO ASI185MC body has a high speed USB 3.0 port, an ST4 guide port, a standard 2" interface with M42 x 0.75 internal threads, a 1/4" tripod thread mount on the back, an ST4 guide port, a standard 2" interface with M42 x 0.75 internal threads, a 1/4" tripod thread mount on the back, and an IR-cut window. The included software is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems. The focus distance to the sensor is 12.5mm.

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.
