ZWO ASI385MC-COOL Cooled Colour Camera

Regular Price: £665.00

Special Price £632.00

Quick Overview

This camera is a larger chipped version of the popular ASI224 model.  However, the ASI385 has smaller amp glow and generally provides cleaner raw images.  This excellent camera will provide exceptional performance for planetary and lunar work, but can aslo be used for deep sky imaging as well.  This version has a full 2 stage TEC (thermo electric cooling) system, which allows cooling of 40-45°C below ambient temperatures, which leads to even better long duration noise performance and even less noise for high speed work.


CMOS Image Sensor for Industrial Applications that Realizes High Sensitivity Approximately Twice That of the Existing Product. Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has developed the CMOS image sensor “IMX385LQR” for industrial applications. This new image sensor realizes high sensitivity approximately twice that of the existing product (IMX185LQJ)*1.

CMOS Image Sensor for Industrial Applications that Realizes High Sensitivity Approximately Twice That of the Existing Product


Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation has developed the CMOS image sensor “IMX385LQR” for industrial applications. This new image sensor realizes high sensitivity approximately twice that of the existing product (IMX185LQJ)*1.
The IMX385LQR pursues picture quality at low illuminance most needed by cameras for industrial applications and mounts pixels with a sensitivity of 2350 mV, which is the highest sensitivity among Sony image sensors for industrial applications*2. In addition, SNR1s of 0.13 lx*3, which is the highest performance among Sony Full HD-compatible image sensors for industrial applications, is achieved by mounting an internal programmable gain amplifier and high conversion gain pixels. Superior performance as an image sensor for industrial applications is further achieved by combining HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology with technology that improves sensitivity in the near-infrared light region.


Astrophotography Performance


ASI385MC-Cool offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, high dynamic range, QE peak >80%, AR protective window and much more.


Dark Current


ASI385MC-Cool has extremely low dark current, you can click here to see dark frame of ASI385 camera(HDR settings, 60s, -10°C).


USB 3.0 Port & USB2.0 HUB


USB 3.0 Port: can provide 5Gb bandwidth to let ASI385 run at 67 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 120 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution(2.13Mega).
We recommends 12V at 3A~5A or more DC adapter for cooler power supply(2.1*5.5, center positive).
Battery from 9-15V is also suitable for cooling power supply.
USB 2.0 HUB: can connect with various accessories, such as filter wheel, guide camera and electronic focuser, so you can manage your cable better with USB2.0 hub. There are 2 short 0.5m USB2.0 cable come with ASI385MC-Cool. the power of hub source from external power supply if you connect it.


Cooling System


ASI385MC-Cool has 2 stage TEC cooling system to enable very deep cooling (40°C-45°C below ambient). you need external power supply to power on the cooler. AC-DC power adapter is not included in this package.
