The ZWO ASI1600MC 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.

You can even use it for guiding, although we understand that it is somewhat a waste of a talent to use it for guiding, but there might be special circumstances or setups when you would want to use it for guiding, so the opportunity is given.

There are four versions with the same large 4/3" sensor (21.9mm diagonal):

Colour or monochrome and cooled or uncooled.

Now you will have to decide whether you want a simple solution and go for a one shot COLOUR CAMERA or would like to get more data out your camera and go for the MONOCHROME version. If you would mainly use it as a deep sky imager camera, we'd also recommend to go for the COOLED version, but if you cannot afford or you'd be mainly using it as a very high resolution planetary imager, then go for the UNCOOLED version.

Please note that the sensor diagonal size is very close to the internal clear aperture of a 1.25" filter, therefore with extremely fast telescopes (small f-ratio) there might be vignetting. The limiting f-ratio is TBC.

Features of the ZWO ASI1600

  • 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!)
  • Resolution: 16MPixel 4656X3520 at up to 23fps
  • Pixel Size: 3.8µm
  • Exposure range: 32µs - 2000s!
  • Read Noise: 1.2e @ 30dB gain
