The ZWO ASI678MM a must have for planetary, solar and lunar imaging. It features the Sony IMX678 which was excellent near infrared sensitivity.

ZWO ASI678MM USB 3.0 Monochrome Camera

ASI678 Monochrome Features

  • Low noise camera with remarkable near infrared response, all due to the back illuminated sensor and superior pixel technology
  • Back illuminated Sony IMX678 sensor increases photon sensitivity resulting in better signal.
  • Large full well capacity and high dynamic range making the ZWO ASI678MM a must have for planetary, solar and lunar imaging
  • No amp glow with better sensor circuitry ensures cleaner exposures with virtually no artificial variation.
  • Measured 83% quantum efficiency peak.
  • USB 3.0 interface reduces risk of interruption during long frame exposures by keeping a secure connection

Low Noise with the Sony IMX678 Sensor

By taking advantage of the Sony IMX678 remarkable near infrared response.

Sony IMX678 Sensor Specs

  • 7.7x4.3mm sensor
  • 3840 x 2160 resolution
  • 12 bit ADC
  • 2μm pixel size
  • 0.6e read noise
  • 11,270e full well capacity
  • 83% quantum efficiency
  • USB 3.0 interface
  • 47.5 frames per second

Benefits of Back Illuminated Design

Back illuminated sensors (BSI for short) such as the Sony IMX678 have a distinct advantage over front illuminated by having less digital noise due to the sensor construction and are superior for low light. This makes the ZWO ASI678MM Monochrome Camera a no brainer for a planetary imager!

USB 3.0 Interface and 256MB DDR3 Memory

The ASI678MM utilizes USB 3.0 interface for stable connection as well as 256MB DDR3 Memory for secure data transfer without interference. This is particularly useful for long exposures since it avoids frame dropping and unwanted glow by slow reading spead.

Say Goodbye to Amp Glow

A major plus of the ZWO ASI678MM is zero amp glow regardless of exposure time or gain value. It also doesn't need to be controlled via software since it is implemented in the hardware

HGC Mode for High Gain Efficiency

The newly added HCG mode reduces readout noise at high gain. This keeps dynamic range the same regardless of low or high gain. The readout noise at 0.8e can maintain a dynamic range of around 12 bit.
