Description

ZWO ASI294MC COLOR USB3.0

The ZWO ASI294MC COLOR USB3.0 is the first camera in the world equipped with the latest Sony sensor IMX294CJK. It uses a 23.2mm diagonal and has a resolution of 11.71Mpx.

The IMX294CJK sensor is the first in-house image sensor for astronomic cameras to adopt the 4/3 format and provides the necessary number of pixels for true 4k output at 120 frames per second (w/ ADC 10-bit output mode, the ZWO ASI294MC COLOR USB3.0 can run up to 25fps at 4k format when used with USB 3.0). In addition, the use of larger-sized pixels achieves SNR1s.

Exceptional low-illumination performance of SNR: 0.14 lx is realized by use of a large-size optical system and by expanding the area per pixel to 4.63 µm. This makes the IMX294CJK ideal for astronomic camera market applications that require low-illumination performance.

The ZWO ASI294MC COLOR USB3.0 has a 14bit ADC unit, allowing it to achieve 13 stops of dynamic range. This is an excellent characteristic for deep sky imaging, which is inherently high dynamic range. At 13 stops, the ASI294 has even more dynamic range than the ASI1600.

HCG (high conversion gain) mode, which reduces read noise to even lower levels at higher gain without loss to dynamic range, is automatically enabled when the gain setting is 120 or higher. Read noise will drop under 2e-, while dynamic range will remain at 13 stops.

The USB 3.0 port provides 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI294MC to run at 16 fps (14bit, normal mode) or 19 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution(11.7Mega). The ST4 port can be used connect with auto guide port of mount, for guiding.
