Product Description

ASI183MM

00

Introducing the ASI183 camera series, the most sensitivie cameras in ZWO history. Peak Q.E. of the mono sensor reaches 84%!

Diagonal 15.86 mm Approx. 20.48M-Effective Pixel Monochrome/Color CMOS Image Sensor

IMX183CQJ-4K-Sensor

▶High-Speed and High-Picture-Quality Rolling Shutter-Type Back-Illuminated CMOS Image Sensors

In the astronomic application field, Sony IMX183CLK-J (monochrome) and IMX183CQJ-J (color) sensors uses a very high sensitivity back-illuminated structure with high resolution 2.4 μm square unit pixel.  The optical size is 1 inch.

Astrophotography Performance

The ASI183 cameras has a very large full well capacity(15000e) for such small pixel size, 1.6e read noise @ 30DB, and 12stops dynamic range @ Gain=0. The ASI183 cameras also utilize firmware features to minimize amplifier glow for maximum performance in astrophotography.

High Speed

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

Notice: depends on user’s feedback, this IMX183 sensor has grid pattern noise when do Ha solar imaging,  please take flat frame for calibration(out of focus or add a barlow lens to take flat frames). We recommend our ASI1600/ASI174 mono camera for Ha solar imaging.

High QE

Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R technology, giving it excellent Deep Sky performance. ASI183 QE peak reaches a remarkable 84%. In Ha channel, QE is still a over 60%.

Having high QE means more of the light that enters your telescope and 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.

IMX183

USB 3.0 Port & ST4 Port

USB 3.0 Port: Provide 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(20.18Mega).

ST4 Port: can be used connect with auto guide port of mount, for guiding.

    Does ASI183 have glass window in front of the chip? If so, how thick? what material and index of refraction?
    Thanks, Hari

      Yes, it has a protective window.
      The thickness is 2 mm.
      The material is Schott glass B270.
      The index of refraction is 1.5.

    The threads on the back of the camera are supposed to be used with a fan ? If yes, what is the recommended fan to install ?
    Another question: it is available the QE graph below 400 nm ?

      It is an uncooled camera and does not support a fan.
      Sorry, we do not have a QE graph below 400nm.

      Yes it can do DSO but if you choose the version with the cooler it would be better.

      As I know the back foccus of Sigma lens is 45.5mm, is that right?
      You need to find the correct back focus of your lens and arrange the adapter.

    Why is the 1600 recommended more for Ha solar imaging than the 183??

      It is possible to use 183 to photograph the sun with a grid pattern, which makes it more complicated to process.

    Is that camera suitable to the standart Celestron C8 for Lunar and planetary imaging? What about the IR sensibility in comapation to other planetary models? Thanks a lot!

    I am looking for a camera for photographing eclipses. How does the sensor compare to a full frame camera? Also, can this camera be attached to a Canon ESO lens? I am also looking at the ASI174MM but am a little concerned that my laptop and photo capture program (fire capture) may not be able to handle the speed.
