Product Details

  • TheZWO ASI294 is a CMOS camera that helps you capture spectacular images of planetary, solar, and lunar celestial objects. With its ability to focus on more than nearby objects, image deep-sky objects too!

    The ZWO ASI294 Specifications At a Glance

    For solar imaging, the ZWO ASI294 camera can record full 11 mp videos at 19 frames per second and capture the entire Sun with a 1350 mm focal length.

    Unique Features of the ZWO ASI294

    Known for its light-gathering efficiency, low read noise and high-resolution, clearand bright images are easy to produce. Check out why below!

    Sony IMX294 CMOS Sensor

    • Records up to 11-megapixel images on a Micro four-thirds format.
    • The camera has a dynamic range of 9 to 13 stops depending on gain settings.
    • Read noise levels can be adjusted between 1.2 and 7.3 electrons.
    • TIP: If you set the gain to 120 DB you can get almost the full 13 stops dynamic range with a dread noise of 1.7 electrons! 

    Optimal ADC

    Capture high-definition images with this camera’s refined ability to cancel out atmospheric dispersion. If you didn’t know, light slightly bends as it comes into our atmosphere. Adjusting your ADC will help you achieve sharper images than that of the ASI1600. Technically, with a 14bit ADC, your camera can achieve 13 stops dynamic range and 63700e full-well depth.

More pics with my 294

I’m getting a lot of experience with this little camera. I’ll be upgrading soon to the cooled OSC version of the 294, but until then I keep on learning.

More experience

As time goes by, and I log more and more hours on my 294, I realize what a valuable tool it is. Along with my ASIAIR pro and 120MM, I’ve been able to take the photos I’ve always dreamed of. When I can afford it, I’m sure I’ll upgrade to a cooled camera, but this camera will never use it’s usefulness. I’ll keep posting reviews as long as you let me, and I’m sure you’ll see the improvements in my photos. I thank you for all of your help.

More miles

I’ve finally had the time to get some guided exposures under my belt now, and will upload more pictures later, but this is a stack of 12, 220 second exposures at 135 gain through my 6” f/6.9 Newtonian using PHD2 and my little ASI120MM. I added darks but no other subs and did editing in gimp and on my ipad. I have since had a breakthrough with my ASIAIR and have communication with my mount, so many more guided photos will be forthcoming from my 294 uncooled.

Very happy

I received my camera very promptly, and now that I’ve had a little time to get used to it, I can say that I am very happy with it. I have had limited success using my ASIAIR with the camera, having so far controlled the camera, polar alignment, and plate solving. Attached are a couple of unguided pictures, one is a stack of 22, 45 second exposures, and the other is a stack of 20, 3 minute exposures.

Excellent camera

I have been getting pretty good results with the ASI294MC; but its 4.63ųm pixel-size is a bit small for my Schmidt-Cassegrain 8-inch telescope. I would need more like a 6ųm pixel-size and a 9ųm would be just fine. Unfortunately, not too many if these cameras around for under $100,000.00 I was looking at a 152mm Refractor and that seems to be a perfect focal-length selection for this camera. You live and learn, I guess.
