This camera is the smaller brother of the popular ASI290MM. It comes in a smaller, lighter body with a 1.25" form factor, with USB2.0 connection instead of USB3.0, but other than that it would be a very good alternative for those who don't necessarily need the highest framerate that comes with SUB3.0 cameras and want to save a little bit of cash for some other astronomy gadget. But that's not the only reason why you would want to go for this product as you will see from further description of the product...

Due to its high sensitivity sensor, when combined with a wide field guide scope this camera will offer a good guiding solution.

It's a small sensor, so it will make a very good planetary imager, plus it can be used for high magnification solar and lunar imaging when not used for guiding. It might even be successfully used for taking images or really small deep sky objects, just don't forget that this is a monochrome camera...

We'd also recommend to read the product description of the high end (USB3.0) version of this camera for further details and comparison of features to get an idea which one would suit you better.

ZWO's first mini camera, the ZWO ASI290MM Mini camera integrates a Sony IMX290 1/3″ sensor (5.6 mm x 3.2 mm). This camera offers 1936 x 1096 pixels resolution with 2.9 μm x 2.9 μm pixel size. It provides 12bit ADC and its QE peak is over 80%.
