Product details


The ASI183MM Monochrome Planetary Camera is one of the most sensitive cameras designed by ZWO. The CMOS sensor in this small camera is 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 20.48M 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.

Fast FPS can be used for lunar imaging, as well as for live viewing/EAA.The high speed readout may also be used for real-time focusing, imaging of double stars and other small objects, planetary imaging of the major planets in the solar system, and much more.

10Bit ADC

5496×3672 19fps
3840×2160 41.04fps
1920×1080 80.10fps
1280×720 117.30fps

12bit ADC

5496×3672 19fps
3840×2160 36.12fps
1920×1080 70.48fps
1280×720 103.23fps

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.

A USB 3.0 port provides 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI183 to run at 19 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 19 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution (20.18M).

An ST4 port is built into the camera for autoguiding. and a cable is provided.
