Sony IMX294CJK HCG Mode
Unique to this sensor is a function called High Conversion Gain (HCG). It reduces read noise to even lower levels at higher gain without loss to dynamic range, it's automatically enabled when the gain setting is 120 or higher. Read noise will drop under 2 electrons, while dynamic range will remain at 13 stops!
Most Adaptable Camera Body
Like most ZWO cooled cameras, This 294 Pro body has an extremely short back focus of 6.5 mm. This makes it very easy to adapt to almost any telescope system. Especially telescopes or reducers where back focus is very scarce.

All images green or blue
$1000 for a camera that takes blue and green pictures. My t4i did better than this. I must have a dud, this sis going back asap.
So far so good.
I already had the ASI1600mc Pro for a few months, so I was familiar with ZWO cameras. So far this one is working well. Haven't had enough clear nights out with it, but loving it so far. Very sensitive.
ZWO needs to pay up.
OPT is a great company. But ZWO needs to include the power cord on a $1000 camera. This is really cheap accessory and not including it is ridiculous.
This product worked flawlessly from the moment I recieved it, it produces excellent images. I would totally recommend it.
Not very good. Difficult to setup. Once setup and got the correct focal length pictures where grainy and really not much better then the current DSLR Camera I was using. I was just expecting more than what was advertised
I’ve only been out a couple nights using the camera. I am amazed at the quality of the Astro photos I have collected thus far. This is a wonderful product at a great price.
