Product Details

  • The ZWO ASI662MC utilizes the latest Sony IMX662 color sensor. Thanks to its large full well capacity, this camera avoids overexposure on long captures when shooting planetary, solar, and lunar images. As a result, the ASI662MC excels at recording clear images of celestial objects on OTAs of all focal ratios.

    ZWO ASI662MC Includes STARVIS 2 Technology

    ZWO's STARVIS 2 technology is embedded in the ASI662MC camera, eliminating amp glow and boosting sensitivity in red and near infrared (NIR) light. This upgrade improves dark current noise significantly when compared to its predecessor, the ASI462MC.

    A Camera Without Amp Glow

    The camera was built from the ground up to remove all amp glow from photos. Expose as long as you need—regardless of exposure length or gain settings—there will be no amp glow blocking details on the edge.

    The camera boasts low readout noise with a high dynamic range, meaning you will be able to record long captures without sacrificing detail. The ASI662MC's built-in HGC mode allows you to enjoy the same noise levels found at low gain, when the camera is set to high gain.

    Quantum Efficiency & Dark Current

    Quantum Efficiency and Readout noise are important specs to consider when choosing a planetary imaging camera. The ASI662MC offers both high QE and low readout noise, giving you a strong signal-to-noise ratio for more clear images.
