The ZWO ASI6200 Pro Cooled Color CMOS Camera is on the more advanced end of the spectrum for ZWO cameras with built in full frame sensor, robust cooling, 62 megapixels resolution and very impressive sensor benchmarks such as full well capacity and quantum efficiency. It is optimized well for long exposure frames due to its sensor size and impressive photon capture.

Features

  • The ASI6200MC Pro camera is equipped with the SONY IMX455 sensor, a full frame 62mp resolution that generates stunning detail.
  • Includes a strong 4ke- full well capaciy ensuring pixels are able to accomodate a large amount of photons and therefore process a larger charge.
  • Includes a lightweight body, thus adding less extra weight to the imaging setup without sacrificing sensor or cooling quality.
  • Uses the back illuminated sensor mechanism to ensure there is no obstruction of photons which could affect final resolution of the image.
  • This the ASI6200 Pro Colored camera uses the Bayer Color RGB sensor framework to capture RGB.

Sony IMX455 Sensor - Power of Full Frame

The Sony IMX455 sensor is a full frame format with a 62mp resolution, excelling in long exposure frames to render sharp pinpoint detail. 

Backlit Sensor Design

By changing the order of the photosensitive layer and the wiring typically constructed on front illuminated sensors, the ASI6200MC Pro uses the IMX455 sensor which is a back illuminated format that doesn't suffer from the photon obstruction since the wiring is behind the photosensitive layer. This results in a better quantum efficiency value than would otherwise be generated while keeping power consumption on reasonable levels as is typical for CMOS sensors.

Excellent Sensor Benchmarks

No Amp Glow Due to Well Designed Sensor Circuit

The improved circuitry of the IMX455 sensor results in a no amp glow sensor. The benefit this provides is the absense of any artifical glow that may appear on the frames which could especially ruin and accumulate over long exposures.

With amp glow at 300 second exposure.

Dew is No Longer an Issue

No question about it, dew is destructive to both image frame results as well as the equipment itself. In the case of the ZWO ASI6200MC Pro, a polyimide heater is installed within the protective window that removes any dew and humidity before reaching the internal housing of the camera.

QE Measurement Peaks of RGB

Strong Consistent Cooling

ZWO has installed a two stage TEC cooling system which can lower the CMOS sensor to up to 35°C below ambient temperature, thus significantly reducing the effect of dark current and sensor noise, especially during longer exposure.

Improved RAM and Data Transmission

To keep data transmission consistent enough to be able to handle the amount of data from a sensor such as the IMX455, the ASI6200MC Pro is equipped with USB 3.0 interface for robust connection and 256MB DDR3 memory to avoid risk of frame interruption and possible data loss altogether. This is especially pertinent when executing long exposure frames.
