DDR Memory Buffer

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

ASI1600 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.

Astrophotography Performance

ASI1600 Pro offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, Low dark current, high dynamic range .

ASI1600 build in 12bit ADC but can provide 12.5 stops dynamic range which is even better than KAF8300 due to its super low read noise.

Reliable Mechanical Structures

There are four screws that seal the sensor chamber. Our camera design has been extensively tested and is very stable.

Even when used in higher humidity environments, ASI1600 Pro will still works fine without dew problems.

USB 3.0 Port & USB2.0 HUB

USB 3.0 Port: Provides 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI1600 Pro to run at 14.7 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 23 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution (16Mega).
USB 2.0 HUB: Can connect with various accessories,  including a filter wheel, guide camera or electronic focuser, allowing you to manage your cables better. There are two short 0.5m USB2.0 cables included with the ASI1600 Pro. The hub is powered by the external power supply if you connect one.

Cooling System

ASI1600 Pro has 2 stage TEC cooling system to enable very deep cooling (40°C-45°C below ambient). The cooler requires an external power supply, which is not included with the camera. You may order a suitable power supply from here.

We recommend using a 12V/3-5A or more DC adapter for cooler power supply (2.1×5.5, center positive).
Using a battery with 9-15V is also suitable for the cooler power supply.

    Thanks for the answer to my previous question, Sam. I have another one. Do you have any idea when you will be releasing the Filter Wheel+OAG package? Also, how many filter positions will that FW have?

    I just took first light with my ASI 1600 mm and a solar (Ha) telescope. I was wondering how can I cool the camera using Firecapture. I am only able to cool the camera using SGP. Is there any other way? I didn’t see anything on the ZWO driver.

      please make sure you use the latest version of Firecapture
      and click “more” button in the camera controls
      then you can see how to control the temperature
      but I don’t think you need to cool it when do soloar ha imaging

    • Sam Wen

      :

      for planetary imaging, you can use sharpcap or Firecapture
      for DSO imaging, you can use MDL, SGP, The SKy X
      for stacking, AS!2 and DSS

    is it possible to record the sensor temperature for each frame? This would be helpful for additional calibrations.

    I have a WO Star 71 and a GSO 8RC, F5 and F8 systems respectively.

    Are 1.25” filters going to cause any visible vignetting on my Star 71? What are the opportunities for 2×2 binning for use with the 8RC ?

    • Sam Wen

      :

      no visible vignetting short to F5 if you use our EFW
      you can use 2×2 binning for your RC8

      HPS will get some 1600-c at the end of this month.
      So, I think probably you will get your camera soon.

    • Sam Wen

      :

      that depends on your scope and the EFW you use
      if you choose our EFW or MFW, 1.25″ filter can support focal ratio higher than F5

    Are these cameras being delivered yet ? or still being made ?.almost been a month since my order + i have to wait a extra 2/3 weeks for delivery (a long wait for a already released *preorder*!!!)

    so basically it’s a batch sell scheme once june comes will it be a $1180 (+$100 us) pre order ever month after may?

    after may no discount because product is in less of abundance or more of an abundance from it’s current state ?

    is the discount because we have to wait 5-7 weeks to actually get the product ?

    i canceled a pre order from retail store to save little bit but now i’m regretting it.

      we are producing and delivering, but production cannot meet demand
      so we deliver follow the order time
      we suppose we will have enough before end of this month

      I think you just need to use blank tape to cover the LED hole
      or open the back panel to cover the LED directly

      this LED is indicator or external power supply
      so there is no way to turn it off if you connected the external power

    What is the typical full-frame unbinned image download time via USB3 to a computer with SSD storage? Are the advertised frame rates achievable in practice?

    • Sam Wen

      :

      that depends on the speed of SSD
      very good SSD can keep up to 400M/s write speed
      which means you can record the data at 23fps

    My retailer (Bintel) is telling me that their pre-order shipment was delayed by a week due to “issues with the camera”. Now is this just retailer speak for supply chain delays or are there really things that you are fixing in the camera? I am also disappointed that direct orders seem to get filled but those that went though retailers are forced to wait.

    Hi Sam,

    I have two questions regarding the power supply for cooling:
    1. What is the plug size at the camera and its polarity?

    2. Cooling power supply is specified for 12V / 2Amp.
    What is its voltage tolerance?
    Can we operate it directly at a lead battery with its up to 14.1 V output voltage?

    Another question on amp glow:
    There are serious concerns about amplifier glow at long exposure time (> 900sec.). Do you have or plan any measures against it ?

    May thanks for your help.
    Juergen

      it’s 5.5*2.1 or 5.5*2.5 and center passitive
      the voltage can accept 9-15V

      About amp-glow for over 900s exposure, I am not sure we can get rid of it
      but we will try
