Product Description

174MM-1174logo

Camera Sensor

Our brand new ASI174MM CMOS Monochrome Imaging Camera is based on the Sony Exmor IMX174 2.35MP sensor with Pregius global shutter technology.

Sony IMX174 CMOS Sensor Features

  • The Sony IMX174 monochrome CMOS sensor that separates the ASI174MM from previous ASI models. This type 1/1.2” Sony CMOS image sensor, with a 5.86µm unit pixel in a 1936 x 1216 array, has a lot of advantages when taking high quality solar, lunar, planetary, and deep sky object images.
  • Pregius Global Shutter function with analog memory permits the scanning of all pixels simultaneously. The Sony IMX174’s global shutter function provides improved image quality by making sure images of moving objects avoid focal plane distortion. This is especially helpful when performing solar or lunar imaging. Bad seeing, wind, or movement can alter the image if the readout speed is not quick enough (< 30fps).
  • Sony Exmor technology uses column-parallel A/D conversion for high speed processing, low noise, and low power dissipation.
  • ROI, or Region of Interest Mode lets you capture up to 16 areas inside the effective pixels. This ability allows for even higher frame rates.
  • High speed imaging with a max of 164.5 fps at 10 bit ADC, and max of 128.2 fps at 12 bit ADC

    Hi guys I have a ASI174mm and last night it started coming up with the error Get Camera SN failed:ErrorGeneralError. This is within the ASI Studio software. This happened half through the night. It seems to work in ASICap but the other software same error. Any ideas, Thanks Paul

    I just purchased your ASI 174 camera. I’d like to do some eyepiece projection photography of planets. Do I need an accessory to achieve this? Any tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

      You can use 1.25″ nose piece to connect your telescope and ASI174MM camera instead of eyepiece.

      Yes, it can. you will need to figure out how much does the telescope need to acquire camera focus.

    Hi,
    some years ago (2017-2018) i have acquired the ASI174mono. I have a doubt about the sensor (Exmor IMX174) and the global shutter technology. Looking on website, i read these characteristics. My camera has the same features or an updated has been done?
    Thanks

    Hi, I am currently using the 178MM but looking to change to the 174MM with a Takahashi FC-76DCU at f/7.82 as this gives me the full disc of the moon. Should I still use a IR pass filter when imaging the moon ? If I use it for solar imaging in white light OR with a Quark would I need to use a UV/IR ? Thanks.

      It does not need IR cut when you shoot the moon, you do not need UV/IR cut if you use Quark.

    I am looking at the ASI174MM for eclipse photography. Is there a way to attach this camera to a Canon EOS lens? Also, how does the sencer size compare to a full frame camera? Also, given the 2.3 mega pixels how much image enlargement is possible?
