ZWO ASI2600MM Pro uses Sony’s latest back-illuminated IMX571 APS-C format native 16-bit ADC sensor. With the ultra-high 14 stops dynamic range, ultra-low 1.0e readout noise and an innovative breakthrough resulting in zero amp-glow, it’s destined to become a blockbuster in the year 2021.

ZWO ASI2600MM Pro USB 3.0 Cooled Monochrome Camera ZWO ASI2600MM Pro uses Sony’s latest back-illuminated IMX571 APS-C format native 16-bit ADC sensor. With the ultra-high 14 stops dynamic range, ultra-low 1.0e readout noise and an innovative breakthrough resulting in zero amp-glow, it’s destined to become a blockbuster in the year 2021. Like its color version, ZWO ASI2600MM Pro also has a very light weight of 0.7KG.   APS-C Format: This is a 26MP camera featuring a small pixel size of 3.76um yet also having the incredible ability of accommodating a large well depth of 50ke. The sensor length and width are 23.5mm * 15.7mm. The diagonal is 28.3mm.   Native 16bit ADC: As one of the few CMOS cooled astronomy cameras with 16bit ADC in the market, ASI2600MM Pro was born with superiorities for astrophotography. This 16bit ADC is not a CCD 16bit ADC. It can really achieve a dynamic range output of 14 stop, which will significantly improve the image sharpness and contrast, also create smoother and more natural color transitions.   IMX571 Backlit Sensor: Sony’s back-illuminated CMOS image sensor improves sensitivity and noise reduction – the key factors to enhancing image quality, while radically realigning their fundamental pixel structure from front-illumination to back-illumination. It has retained the advantages of CMOS image sensors such as low power consumption and high-speed operation. With a conventional front-illumination structure, the metal wiring and transistors on the surface of the silicon substrate that form the sensor’s light-sensitive area (photo-diode) impede photon gathering carried out by the on-chip lens. A back-illuminated structure minimizes the degradation of sensitivity to optical angle response, while also increasing the amount of light that enters each pixel due to the lack of obstacles such as metal wiring and transistors that have been moved to the reverse of the silicon substrate.   Camera Performance: The ZWO ASI2600MM Pro has excellent performance with a dynamic range of up to 14stops. When the gain value is 100, the magical HCG high gain mode is turned on, the readout noise is greatly reduced, and the dynamic range is basically unchanged. For better date quality, it is recommended to set the gain to 0 or gain 100 during deep-sky imaging.   Zero Amp Glow: Traditional CMOS sensors produce a weak infrared light source during operation quite often seen in the corner of uncalibrated images as the tell-tale signs of ‘amp glow’. As the ZWO ASI2600MM Pro uses zero amp glow circuitry, you won’t have to worry about amp glow even when using high gain, long exposure imaging.   Anti-Dew Heater: There is a polyimide heater completely fitting the protective window in the ASI2600MM cooled astronomy camera. It can help avoid the annoying dew or icing issues. The power of the heater is around 5W. You are free to turn it off anytime in your photography software if you want to save some power.   QE Value:According to the test results of Sony, the QE peak value of the ASI2600MM Pro is 91%.   Two-Stage TEC Cooling, Ultra-Low Dark Current: Thanks to the two stage TEC cooling, ASI2600MM Pro can lower the CMOS sensor temperature to more that 35c below ambient, which can greatly reduce dark current generation and sensor noise even with extended exposure times. The unique dark current suppression technology can even further reduce dark current noise. At a cooling temperature of 0 °, the dark current noise is only 0.0022e/s/pix. Which means 300s exposure can only cause 0.7e dark current noise, which is less than the readout noise. While at a cooling temperature of -20 °, the dark current can even reduce to 0.00012e/s/pix, which is completely negligible!   USB3.0 & 512M DDR3 Memory: The ASI2600MM Pro is equipped with a USB 3.0 transmission interface and a built-in 512MB DDR3 cache to ensure stable and secure data transmission.
