ZWO ASI1600MM-Pro USB 3.0 Cooled Mono Camera

The ZWO ASI1600MM-Pro USB 3.0 Cooled Mono Camera is an excellent choice for imaging deep sky objects, however it can do much more than that. With a max framerate of 23 FPS this camera can also be used as an extremely high resolution planetary imager. If you cannot decide if your thing is deep sky or planetary imaging, go for this camera. It is also a much more affordable alternative to converting a dSLR.

The ASI1600 features a built-in 12bit ADC, but can also provide 12.5 stops dynamic range which is even better than the competing KAF8300 sensor dew to its super low read noise, so it could be a good alternative to much more expensive professional CCD cameras.

This version also comes with built-in active cooling that helps to reduce electronic noise to the minimum.


Why not to try L-RGB or narrow band photography with the ZWO ASI1600MM-Pro USB 3.0 Cooled Mono Camera
If you are not in rush, but you'd like to get out the best result from your camera, this monochrome version is the right choice for you.

Consider that with this monochrome version you'll also need a filter wheel and a set of L-RGB filters or H-alpha and OIII filters, and maybe even H-beta and SII filters as well for narrow band photography... see additional listings below.



Features of the ZWO ASI1600MM-Pro USB 3.0 Cooled Mono Camera
Recommended for Deep Sky Imaging as well as the Sun, Moon and planets at very high resolution (the monochrome version is better for the Sun)
(To image the Sun you'll have to use a proper front solar filter or Herschel wedge depending on your telescope. Please contact us if not sure!)

On the included CD you'll find drivers and two software applications: Firecapture and SharpCap. These are both freeware and the latest versions can be downloaded from the developers' websites.
If you have any problem with installing any of the software from the CD, please download them from here:
Firecapture Beta Downloads
SharpCap Downloads
We'd recommend to always use the beta version of Firecapture, but reverse to the latest stable version if you experience problems.
