    All the web page photos show it with a lens but the parts list doesn’t have a lens.
    Does this come with an All Sky lens? Or is one available?

    I would like to connect this camera to a refractor that support 2″ and 1.25″. May I know what else do I need to get in order to connect ASI662MC to a 2″ focuser?

    Your manual only indicate 1.25″ connecting method.

    Can you advise if you can do long exposure photographs with this camera – ideally 1-2 hours to take images of star trails? Thanks

    I’ve Skymax 127 and intend to buy this for planetary/moon (solar may be) and also for beginning on DSO occasionally. How does it weigh against ASI224MC. Both need IR/UV cut filters for planetary/moon but what is IR 850nm pass used for? Same for CH4

    Do you have a list of max framerates for a few different resolutions so we can compare to the ASI462MC?

    Also the marketing here doesn’t do a great job of comparing the max fps to the ASI462MC (the camera this one is meant to replace). The way it’s currently presented, it makes it seem like the framerate is not as good as the ASI462MC but that’s incorrect. The 662 has a 12-bit ADC that gives a max framerate of 102.6fps at 1920×1080 resolution. The 462 only has a max framerate of 64.8fps when operating in 12-bit mode at the same resolution and 63.9fps at max resolution. The ASI462MC’s max framerate of 136.1fps mentioned in the comparison graphic is only possible when operating 10-bit mode. In 12-bit mode, the ASI662MC really has a 1.5x higher framerate at 1920×1080 than the ASI462MC operating in 12-bit mode. That’s a huge improvement and not really highlighted in the comparison graphic!

    I’m looking for a color planetary camera with 2.9 micron pixels. Which camera would you recommend? I’ve been considering the ASI662MC and ASI585MC. They seem very similar except for the 585MC having a larger sensor. The 585MC is touted for being better at Solar and Lunar photography; is that just because of the sensor size? Another way they differ that I don’t understand completely is in their maximum frame rates at different resolutions and at 10 or 12 bit ADC resolutions. The 662MC behaves as I’d expect with FPS going up as resolutions decrease and FPS going up as ADC goes from 12 to 10. So, for 640×480 it can do 161 FPS with a 12 bit ADC and 227 FPS at 10 bit ADC. For the 585MC though, it seems to just do 193 FPS regardless of whether 10 or 12 bit ADC; is that correct? When looking at the camera performance graphs, it looks like they both go into HCG mode at gain = 252. But, it looks like the 585MC has a little higher RN at that point, but also a little higher FWC, so the DR turns out to be the same as for the 662MC even though it has lower RN. Am I interpreting that correctly?

    Anyway, looking for a recommendation for one of the cameras or another one in your lineup.

    Thanks,

    Ted Stokes

    No it doesnt. Originally it was listed on the website as AR, but the manual said IR. ZWO have now updated everything to say AR window (sep)

    I’m wondering in Firecapture settings, should I enable 16-bit for ASI 662? Any advantages?
    Usually I set the exposure with the histogram up to 80%. But if the camera is 16-bit, would it be enough to set with a shorter exposure with the histogram up to a lower value, like 40%?

    Best planetary camera yet! I’m amazed how sharp and clear my photos of Jupiter are; noticeably better than with my 462. Frame rate is pretty much the same for planets, around 255 fps for an ROI of 416×416. The gain required was considerably higher than the 462 but that seems not to matter; it still results in a cleaner picture.

    Been ready some cameras work better with different focal ratios. I have a 8″ Newtonian with 5.9 focal ratio. 203mmx1200. Will this asi178mc work with my scope?

    Asi 662MC have Air Cooling? On teleskop-express.de specify: ♦ Passive cooling with heat dissipation against heating of the sensor during long time exposures.
    Air cooling – reduces sensor temperature
    The sensor heats up during the exposures. The PCS dissipates heat from the sensor via a heat conducting pad. The sensor temperature is thus reduced by up to 15 degrees Celsius compared to cameras without PCS.
