ZWO ASI462MM USB3.0 Monochrome CMOS Camera with Autoguider Port

The ASI462MM is the latest monochrome planetary camera from ZWO which adopts the Sony IMX462 1/2.8” format 12bit ADC sensor. The 2.9um pixel size accommodates a well depth of 11.2ke with a total of 2.1MP pixels.

With the ability in capturing infrared lights, the super high sensitivity and ultra low readout noise, this camera is considered as the Infrared upgraded version of ASI290MM, and will offer great performance for planetary imaging, solar and lunar imaging. This is an exciting news, especially for keen planetary imagers!


STARVIS Technology
The STARVIS Technology brings better imaging performance to the camera in low light conditions.

DDR3 Memory
The camera is equipped with a USB 3.0 transmission interface and a built-in 256MB DDR3 memory to ensure stable and secure data transmission. Under long exposure, it effectively avoids frame dropping and greatly reduces the glow effect caused by slow reading speed.

USB 3.0 & ST4 Port
USB 3.0 Port: Provides 5Gb bandwidth to let the camera run at 136.1fps (10bit, high speed mode) or 63.9fps (12bit, normal mode) at full resolution (2Mega).
ST4 Port: Can be used to connect with auto guide port of mount for guiding.

ASI462MM vs ASI290MM
As the upgraded version of ASI290MM, ASI462MM has achieved great improvements regarding QE and readout noise.

Low readout noise & high QE value
ASI462MM is integrated with HCG mode, which can effectively reduce readout noise at high gain and allow the camera to maintain the same high dynamic range as it does at low gain. At gain 80, the HCG mode is automatically turned on; the dynamic range reaches a level close to 12stops, and the readout noise can be as low as 0.47e.0
QE value and readout noise are some of the most important specifications for astronomical cameras. High QE and low readout noise are essential to improve image SNR(Signal to Noise Ratio).

AR Protective Window
ASI462MM features the AR(Anti-Reflective) coating on its protective glass. Diameter of the window: 21mm. Thickness: 1.1mm.
