Product details


The ZWO ASI120MM Mini monochrome planetary camera & guide scope uses the AR130CS CMOS sensor, with its 3.75 um pixels in a 1280 x 960 array, to produce images with low read noise and high dynamic range.  The peak QE, or quantum efficiency of the ASI120Mini is almost 80%.

The camera provides 12-bit ADC and up to 35 FPS (frames per second).  

The ZWO ASI120MM Mini sports one USB2.0 type C port. Type C ports are well suited for mobile phones because of their worry-free connection; it doesn't matter which way you turn the cable to plug it in, unlike a Type A or Type B cable.  For guiding, you can connect the camera to the ST4 type guide port, located above the USB2.0 port on the back of the 120Mini.

The ASI120 Mini is a great camera for those new to imaging.  It can be focused just like an eyepiece.  This little camera works well with an OAG, or off-axis guider, and since the ASI120Mini has a larger focus range than normal ASI cameras, it will be way easier to find focus between your guide camera and imaging camera at the same time. By the way, you can use the ASI 120 Mini with the optional ZWO 60 mm Guide Scope or the Mini Guide Scope!

Please Note:  Main image shows two views of the ASI120MM Mini, but you only get one camera. :-)
