The ZWO ASI1600MM Monochrome Camera with Guide port with Guide port is the latest and largest format non-cooled mono camera from ZWO.  

ZWO have rightly been regarded as providing excellent planetary cameras at competitive prices.  With the advent of the new ASI1600 series, ZWO can now claim to really be producing cameras for true deep sky use as well.  The size of the ZWO ASI 1600 series sensors truly are in the same league as APS-C sized DSLRs - indeed, the sensors used in these cameras are used in many commercially available cameras, without the usual filtration issues that come with regular DSLRs.  As a monochrome system, the ZWO ASI1600MM Monochrome Camera enjoys a healthy advantage over its colour alternative, due to its lack of bayer matrix - though this must of course be countered by the need for colour filtration and recombination in post-processing in order to produce true colour images.  

The ZWO ASI 1600MM Monochrome Camera features a Monochrome 4/3" CMOS Sensor (21.9mm diagonal) with a resolution of 16 Megapixels (4656 x 3520 pixels) with an individual pixel size of 3.8 microns.  The exposure range of this camera runs up to 2000 seconds duration and the camera can capture at up to 23FPS at full resolution.  The cooled version of this camera will naturally run at a lower temperature, due to its two stage TEC system, but this camera shows very reasonable noise control properties even without active cooling, due to its specially designed body with integrated heatsink.
