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 buffer

ASI533MC Pro – ASI183MC Pro Comparision

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.

    Q regarding sensor size for this cam and other zwo dso cams.

    I have issue with my newtonian focuser in reaching focus with dslr camera.
    This is because I changed the focuser and distance that used to work to focus dslr doesn’t work anymore.

    I am wondering if reaching focus may also be an issue with zwo big sensor cams as it is in dslr with similar big senor size.
    Can anyone help in clarifying that…because i don’t want to be surprised after I get the camera.

    I also have another telescope which has plenty of focus distance so it wouldn’t be issue with that but would be good to use this cam in newtonian as well. Thank you.

    Further down you would see that it s specifications are very similar to the ASI183MC-PRO, however this camera comes with larger pixel size and thus smaller overall resolution. So if you would use it with a really compact, widefield achromat or apochromat, we would still recommend to go for the ASI183MC-PRO, but for slightly larger APOs this camera would be a really good choice.

    Hi, The graphs on your site show the characteristics of the camera until a gain equal to 450. The unity gain is at gain = 100. But on ASIAIR pro the gain goes from 0 to 360: what is the right gain to set on ASIAIR pro to achieve the unity gain? 100 or 100*360/450?
    Thanks in advance

    @Support: Buying an ASI294 would make 12 bit ADC possible and leave more margin for tracking errors while observing the moon with a 150/1200-Newtonian, but it does not seem that this would speed up the frame rate in comparison with the ASI533 in 14 bit mode. The IMX533CQD in readout mode 1 might do. On the other hand, a faster ASI294 would also be interesting …

    Hello,

    the IMX533 sensor with its square aspect ratio seems to be perfect for solar and lunar imaging, but ~20 fps is a bit slow. According to Sony, changing to 12 bit ADC increases the frame rate strongly. As this would be interesting for EAA, are you considering to make a camera with switchable ADC mode?

    Btw, thank you for permanently developing interesting cameras without making the new ones significantly more expensive. I have almost completely given up looking for cameras not made by ZWO.

    Kind regards,

    Frank

    Hello,
    I have a question regarding the power consumption. I know you recommend 12V/3A but I need to be mobile and these power tanks become very heavy 😉
    According to the graph in the manual, the cooling will be already very effective at 25% giving dT-25 and only draw 0.7 A. Does that mean i can use a smaller power supply e.g. 12V/2A if I don’t use the cooling at 100%?
    Thanks and Clear Skies,
    Robert

    Hello.
    How long is the minimal additional light length when I connect the sensor to 1.25 inch adapter of my telescope?
    Which should I choose cooled camera or non-cooled one when I use it for just viewing of DSOs on my PC instead of usung eyepieces?
