ZWO ASI071MC Pro Cooled Astronomy Camera
- Most famous sensor of Sony
- APS-C(1.8″) Diagonal 28.4mm
- 16M Pixel (4944×3284)
- Very low read noise: 2.3e @24db gain 3.3e @lowest gain
- 14Bit ADC: provide real 14bit Dynamic range
- Electronic shutter: no vibration problem with mechanical shutter
DDR Memory Buffer
ASI071MC Pro camera includes a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer to help improve data transfer reliability. Additionally, the use of a memory buffer minimizes amp-glow, which is caused by the slow transfer speeds when the camera is used with a USB 2.0 port.
DDR memory buffer is the main difference between ASI “Cool” and “Pro” cameras.
ASI071MC Pro offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, high dynamic range.
the Dark Current of ASI071MC Pro is better controled than before with the help of DDR buffer and new improvment of hardware design
Please check this 300s dark frame free of amp-glow:Here
We suppose the QE peak value is more than 50%.
Unique Tilt Adapter
ASI071 Pro includes unique tilt adapter. Say goodbye to tilt problems forever !
USB 3.0 Port & USB2.0 HUB
USB 3.0 Port: Provide 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI071MC Pro to run at 10 fps (14bit, normal mode) at full resolution(16Mega).
New mechnical design and Anti-Dew Heater
ASI071MC Pro Camera completely upgrade anti-dew and mechnical body.
The diameter of the camera body is incresed to 86mm (ASI071MC-Cool is 78mm).
▶6 screws seal the chamber
This new structure seal the CMOS chamber better and no dew or frost happen on sensor anymore.
▶anti-dew and cooling system
ASI071MC Pro has a two-stage TEC cooling system that allows deep cooling (35°C-40°C below ambient). You will need an external power supply to power the cooler. An AC-DC power adapter is not included in this package, however you can order one from here.
The anti-dew heater will heat the AR protect window to avoid any dew problems. The heat anti-dew heater power is around 3.6W and can be turn off in software to save power.
- 2”Filter (optional)
- EOS-T2 adapter
- M42 to M48 extender 16.5mm
- M42 extender 21mm
- Focal reducer
