Camera Sensor

▶IMX533

ASI533-Sensor

1” square sensor

The IMX533 is a 1-inch, 9MP CMOS image sensor in a square format with a 3.76 um pixel size, capable of producing frames at 20 frames/sec in 14bit mode.

Read out noise is as low as 1.0e which makes it comparable to SCMOS or EMCCD sensors and highly suitable for high definition, low noise imaging.

IMX533 backlit sensor

Sony’s back-illuminated CMOS image sensor improves sensitivity and noise reduction – the key factors to enhancing image quality, while radically realigning their fundamental pixel structure from front-illumination to back-illumination. It has retained the advantages of CMOS image sensors such as low power consumption and high-speed operation.

With a conventional front-illumination structure, the metal wiring and transistors on the surface of the silicon substrate that form the sensor’s light-sensitive area (photo-diode) impede photon gathering carried out by the on-chip lens. A back-illuminated structure minimizes the degradation of sensitivity to optical angle response, while also increasing the amount of light that enters each pixel due to the lack of obstacles such as metal wiring and transistors that have been moved to the reverse of the silicon substrate.
Sony has newly developed a unique photo-diode structure and on-chip lens optimized for back-illuminated structures, that achieves a higher sensitivity and a lower random noise without light by reducing noise, dark current and defect pixels compared to the conventional front-illuminated structure.

Zero Amp Glow

Traditional CMOS sensors produce a weak infrared light source during operation quite often seen in the corner of uncalibrated images as the tell tale signs of ‘amp glow’. As the ASI533MC PRO uses zero amp glow circuitry, you won’t have to worry about amp glow even when using high gain, long exposure imaging.

Note: We recommend using an external 12V power supply to power the camera instead of USB 3.0/2.0 only

DDR Memory Buffer

The ASI533MC PRO is equipped with a USB 3.0 interface, and even in 14bit mode, can reach 20 frames per second. The 256MB DDR3 memory ensures stable downloading of frames with increased USB speeds. DDR Memory Buffer

ASI533-2

The ASI533MC PRO features SONY’s latest back illuminated IMX533 sensor, with a 1-inch square, 9.07MP sensor that is ideal for astronomical photography needs and can be considered as the latest iteration of the venerable ASI183MC Pro.

As you would expect this latest generation camera not only retains key features of the ASI183 series such as an attractive QE figure, high frame rate and along with other excellent characteristics of the ASI183 cameras, but also now includes new and improved features such as zero amp glow, extreme low read out noise (as low as 1.0e), 3.76 microns pixel size and an improved 2 stage TEC cooler giving enhanced cooling capabilities.

    Hello! I received your camera, and i have some questions after using it couple of time.

    1- What is the best cooling temperature for most of situation? -15 or -20 degrees.
    2- Do i need capture BIAS shots? If you say YES, what is the smallest exp. time in ASIAIR 0.001
    3- I have 1,25 filter (L-Pro, L-Enhance) it is ok to use it with this sensor? Do i need 2” filters instead 1,25.

      1. The cooling temp of ASI533 can up to 35 degrees.
      You can set it as -5 or -10 degrees.
      2. Yes, you can use 0.001s.
      3. Yes.

    It was the first night i wanted to use unity gain 100 on my asi533.

    And before launching sharpcap session as i usually do, i checked if everything was ok, some frames, and ….boommmmm….

    Horizontal banding issues..

    And lately i checked also all my last darks took in the afternoon and they all have banding: pronounced at unity gain, and slowly decreasing as i increase the gain.

    What can i do? I feel so sad…

    Here you can also find original .fits files to download, if you want please to check your own…

    Hello. Due to small sensor size, its is possible to keep 1,25 filter instead of 2”?
