DESCRIPTION

ZWO ASI290MM Mini Monochrome CMOS Telescope Guide Camera

The ASI290 'Mini' Monochrome Guide Camera by ZWO:

 

The ZWO ASI290 Mini is a top notch monochrome guide camera, well suited to both planetary imaging and acting as a guider to amplify the usefulness of other astronomy instruments. Despite being qualified as a 'miniature' camera, it still operates at a high level of performance; with a peak QE over 80-percent, a read noise of only 1.0e, a pixel array of 1936 x 1096, and a pixel size of only 2.9 micrometers, it qualifies as a powerhouse despite it's small size. It achieves all of this while presenting a small and slender profile, taking up a minimum of space in your imaging train. The interface for this camera is a Type C USB 2.0 port, similar to that found in several mobile phone types.

My new best guide camera

The best part of this camera is the mini size. When used in off axis guiding, and with the spacers in front of the image camera, it can be mounted directly in front of the filter wheel. This makes for a compact image train. Although its not cooled, the camera has low noise and good sensitivity. As expected, no issues with finding guide stars with at 910mm focal length. Hoping for as good results at 2000mm FL.

Fast Delivery

I received the camera in perfect condition about 24 hours after placing the order. Of course I'm just 10 miles from the store but I was pleased to see how fast the order got processed.
