ZWO ASI294MC Colour Camera

Regular Price: £774.00

Special Price £697.00

Quick Overview

The ZWO ASI294MC is the first camera in the world that is equipped with SONY's latest sensor, the IMX294CJK.  This high resolution sensor makes this camera a true all-rounder - and although not as high speed as some of the smaller sensored cameras in the ZWO range, this camera will perform well for planetary imaging, but will really shine when it comes to deep sky capture.


Diagonal 21.63 mm (Type 4/3) Approx. 10.71M-Effective Pixel Color CMOS Image Sensor, This is the official description on Sony website. In our effort, we remolded it to make it Diagonal 23.2 mm (Type 4/3) Approx. 11.71M-Effective Pixel.

IMX294CJK


Diagonal 21.63 mm (Type 4/3) Approx. 10.71M-Effective Pixel Color CMOS Image Sensor, This is the official description on Sony website. In our effort, we remolded it to make it Diagonal 23.2 mm (Type 4/3) Approx. 11.71M-Effective Pixel.


High-Sensitivity Type 4/3 CMOS Image Sensor that Supports 4K for Astronomic Camera and Industrial Applications


The “IMX294CJK” is the first in-house image sensor for astronomic cameras to adopt the Type 4/3 format, and realizes output of the number of pixels needed for 4K at 120 frame/s (in ADC 10-bit output mode, ASI294MC can run up to 25fps at 4k format base on USB3.0 bandwidth). In addition, use of a large-size pixel achieves SNR1s of 0.14 lx* which is very close to the value from ASI224(0.13 lx*)


Exceptional low-illumination performance


Exceptional low-illumination performance of SNR1s: 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.


14bit ADC & 13 stops DR


ASI294 has 14bit ADC and it can achieve 13 stops dynamic range which is a little better than ASI1600.


HCG Mode


HCG mode will be on when gain is higher than 120, read noise drops below 2e but same dynamic range(13 stops).


Full well Capacity


63700e full well, which is 3 times than ASI1600’s capacity. even a bright stars won’t saturate under long exposure.


This camera can achieve higher SNR(signal to noise ratio) with just one single exposure.
