Product details


The ASI183MC Pro Cooled Color Astronomy Camera includes the back-illuminated Sony IMX183, with 5496 x 3672 resolution and a pixel size of 2.4um. The IMX183 has a diagonal size of 15.86 mm, with approximately 20.18M effective pixels. This sensor has just 1.6e read noise at 30DB, and 12 stops of dynamic range at 0 Gain. Full well capacity is a large 15000e, and amp glow is minimized via firmware.

Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R technology provides excellent deep sky performance. The peak QE for the ASI183 is 84%. Even in the Ha channel, QE is still over 60%.

Having high QE means more of the light that reaches the sensor is actually used. With 84% peak Q.E. and no less than ~50% within the visible spectrum, the ASI183 will utilize a high percentage of the light that reaches it, improving your signal quality.

The ASI183 Pro camera includes a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer to help improve data transfer reliability. Additionally, the use of a memory buffer minimizes amp-glow, which is caused by the slow transfer speeds when the camera is used with a USB 2.0 port.

The DDR memory buffer is the main difference between ASI “Cool” and “Pro” cameras.

ASI183 Pro has same mechanics as ASI1600 Pro. There are four screws that seal the sensor chamber. Our camera design has been extensively tested and is very stable even in demanding environments.

Even when used in environments with higher humidity, ASI183 Pro will still work fine without dew problems.
