ZWO ASI1600GT MONO cooled, sensor D-22.2mm with 5 position filter wheel

ASI 1600GT mono camera with powerful Panasonic sensor and integrated electronic filter wheel - space for 5 x 1.25" or 31mm filters

♦ Sensor: 4/3" 22.2mm diagonal Panasonic CMOS sensor with impressive sensitivity

♦ Integrated filter wheel with space for 5 mounted 1.25" or unmounted 31mm filters

♦ DDR Memory Buffer 256 MB - cache for more stable data transport - minimizes amplifier brightness via USB2.0 (characteristic of new PRO versions)

♦ Improved casing with controlled cooling up to 45°C below ambient temperature with no dew or icing issues, even at higher humidity. Incl. chamber for desiccant.

♦ Pixels: 3.8 µm pixels - 4656 x 3520 pixels

♦ Short download time via USB 3.0 - can also be used with USB 2.0

♦ Only 26.5mm back focus (distance from T2 thread to sensor, including integrated filter wheel)

♦ Adapters for offsets with 55 mm working distance (M48 and T2) are included

♦ Extremely high sensitivity, the QE is greater than 60%. After just 30 seconds, it has captured images of faint galaxies and nebulae.

♦ Wide scope of delivery

ZWO ASI1600GT - Cooled SW CMOS Camera for Astrophotography

ASI cameras stand for very good workmanship and have modern CMOS sensors built in. The ASI1600 series cameras are almost a legend. The state-of-the-art Panasonic CMOS sensor impresses with its very high sensitivity and very low noise at the same time.

Integrated electronic filter wheel

The filter wheel offers space for 5 filters. Filter wheel accepts 1.25" filters mounted and 31mm filters unmounted.

Important note: The thickness of a 1.25" filter must not exceed 7mm (excluding external thread) and the external thread must be less than 2.5mm so that the filter wheel does not hit the camera body .

ASI1600GT Monochrome Camera Product Advantages and Features:

♦ USB 3.0 for fast download - can also be used with USB 2.0

♦ DDR3 memory buffer for stable data transfer with USB2.0: Minimizes amp glare caused by slower data transfer with USB2.0.

♦ Powerful Peltier cooling up to 45°C below ambient temperature

♦ Sensitive 21.9mm diagonal CMOS sensor: 16 megapixels

♦ High resolution with 3.8 µm pixels

♦ Supplied with AR clear glass filter - full transmission even in infrared. If IR is to be blocked, an IR cut filter is required.

♦ Distance of connection thread T2 (internal thread) to the camera sensor: 26.5 mm

♦ High sensitivity - QE greater than 60% - ideal astronomy camera for faint objects

♦ 12-bit ADC

Camera application areas:

♦ Deep sky recordings (nebulae and galaxies): Due to the high sensitivity, nebulae and galaxies are captured after a few seconds. The camera can be cooled down to 45°C below ambient temperature. This further reduces the already low noise level. By increasing the GAIN (comparable to the ISO setting on digital SLR cameras), you can reduce exposure times to less than 30 seconds. This eliminates effects caused by air turbulence or tracking inaccuracies.

♦ Records of the sun, moon and planets: Extremely short exposure times due to high sensitivity freeze air turbulence. Due to the high resolution of the sensor, highly detailed images can be obtained even with a shorter focal length telescope. Video astronomy is also possible.

Important: external power supply required!

Please note that all ZWO cameras with cooler must be connected to an external 11-15V power supply to work.

Even when the cooler is not in use, power must be present for the camera to be recognized reliably.

TS Handy Tip: Storing Cameras and Accessories

Especially in our latitudes, the nights are usually very humid. This moisture condenses on your camera, eyepiece, or filter as they enter the warm interior of the apartment. Cold rooms in particular are affected. A photo session ends quickly because the sensor freezes.

Good storage is an important prevention against dew and also prolongs shelf life.

After use, put the camera into the TS Protect case and add some silica gel. During storage, the silica gel absorbs moisture from the chamber. At the same time, the penetration of moist ambient air is prevented. Due to dry storage, even small dry tablets can be partially regenerated with cooled chambers. Your camera or accessories are always ready for you in optimal conditions. You can find the silica gel and the case in our product recommendations.
