Versatile. Compact. Exceptional Image Quality
The ZWO ASI6200MM Pro is a full-frame camera packed with features that help you produce world-class images. With exceptional noise reduction technology and video capabilities, the 6200 Pro is ideal for :
- Deep Space Astrophotography.
- Planetary Imaging.
- Sky Surveys.
- Forensic Science.
ADAPTABLE CAMERA BODY
Like most ZWO cooled cameras, the 6200 Pro body has an extremely short back focus of 17.5 mm. This makes it very easy to adapt to almost any telescope system. Especially telescopes or reducers where back focus is very scarce.
Imaging Accessories Included in ASI6200 Imaging Package
ZWO 5-Position Electronic Filter Wheel for 2-inch Filters
Initially designed specifically for the ZWO ASI6200 camera, this filter wheel is a necessary addition to your imaging setup. CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, this wonderfully crafted accessor functions on a reliable and trusted stepper motor. Only 1 USB cable is required to power this at approximately 120 mAH @ 5V.
When connected to the ASI6200, the distance from the filter to the sensor is 18 mm, as per the ZWO’s specifications.
ZWO 2-inch LRGB Filter Set
Joining the initial wave of products designed directly for the ZWO ASI6200 is the 2-inch LRGB filter set. These filters are a fantastic addition to your camera and filter wheel setup.
The thickness of each filter is 5 mm with an additional 2.5 mm to account for the M48 x 0.75 threading. Accurately polished to guarantee a ¼ wavefront, these precision off-band blocking filters deliver roughly 92% transmission rates and have a small spectral “gap” to help minimize the effect of light pollution.
ZWO M68 Off-Axis Guider
Suitable for full-frame cameras, but built for the ZWO ASI6200, this M68 OAG is exactly what you’ll need to achieve essentially perfect guiding in addition to one of ZWO’s signature guiding cameras. Forego the guide scope and instead optimize your imaging system to perfection with this addition in the ASI6200 packages.
Light-Sensitive, Backlit IMX455 Sensor
The back-illuminated CMOS image sensor from Sony provides sensitivity and noise reduction essentially unmatched in most cameras of the same class. These are two of the key factors when looking to enhance your image quality. Native to CMOS sensors, the IMX455 also functions with extremely low power consumption while maintaining high-speed operations.
Camera Performance and Cooling
The ZWO ASI6200 has a dynamic range of up to 14 stops and quantum efficiency of 80%. Under this operation, a two-stage TEC cooling system is used to lower the CMOS sensor temperature to more than 30 degrees below ambient temperatures, greatly reducing dark current generation and sensor noise even during long exposures. Dark current suppression technology is also integrated into this camera for further reduced noise.
At a cooling temperature of zero degrees Celsius, the dark current noise is only 0/004e/s/pix, meaning a 300s exposure will only cause 1.2e of dark current noise!
