Product Description

ZWO ASI290MC Color CMOS Imaging Camera

The ZWO ASI290MC is a CMOS camera tis great for lunar, solar, and planetary imaging, and can even capture deep sky images. The ASI290MC uses the Sony IMX290/291 color 1/3" CMOS 2.13 MP sensor, with a 1936 x 1096 array of 2.9um pixels. This sensor has extremely low read noise of 1.0e at 30db gain and can fire off a maximum of 170 FPS at full resolution.

The ZWO ASI290MC body has a back focus of 12.5mm. A high speed USB 3.0 port, ST4 guide port, 1/4” tripod thread mount on the back, and an AR window are features of this ZWO imaging camera. The included software is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems.

The Sony IMX290/291LRQ uses STARVIS back-illuminated pixel technology for improvements in visible and IR light regions. Besides a back-illuminated structure, the Sony IMX290LRQ also has an expanded photodiode area. When applied simultaneously, these features improve sensitivity in both light regions compared to the existing front-illuminated structure.

The IMX290/291 has a diagonal size of 6.46 mm (Type 1/2.8) and uses a 2.9 um square pixel that was newly developed by Sony to further enhance picture quality at low illuminations.
