Product Description

ASI6200MM Pro

ASI6200

Amazing Craftsmanship, Lightweight body, Solid image quality

We have been working hard to reduce the weight of the camera while improving the performance of the camera. After years of technical accumulation and repeated weight loss experiments by ZWO engineers, ZWO finally concentrated the ASI6200 to 0.7KG

6200-2

Full Frame format

The ASI6200MM Pro uses full frame format, the sensor length and width are 36mm * 24mm and the diagonal is 43.3mm. This is a 62MP camera with a small pixel size of 3.76um that can accommodate a large well depth of 51.4ke.

Native 16bit ADC

ASI6200MM Pro is our first batch of CMOS astronomy cameras with 16bit ADC. This 16bit ADC is not a CCD 16bit ADC, and it can really achieve a dynamic range output of 14 stops. This significantly improves the image sharpness and contrast, and the color changes are smoother and more natural.

IMX455 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.

Camera Performance

The ASI6200MM Pro has excellent performance with a dynamic range of up to 14stops. When the gain value is 100, the magical HCG high gain mode is turned on, the readout noise is greatly reduced, and the dynamic range is basically unchanged. It is recommended to set the gain to 0 or gain 100 in deep space.

ASI6200-Performance

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 ASI6200MM Pro uses zero amp glow circuitry, you won’t have to worry about amp glow even when using high gain, long exposure imaging.

With amp glow – exposure 300 second exposure

Anti-dew

ASI6200MM Pro comes with the polyimide heater that can avoid any dew problems.

The anti-dew heater  which completely fit the  protective window will heat it to avoid any dew problems.

The heat anti-dew heater power is around 5W and can be turn off  in software to save power.

QE value

The QE peak value of the ASI6200MM Pro is 91%.

Two-stage TEC cooling, ultra-low dark current

ASI6200MM Pro uses two stage TEC cooling that can lower the CMOS sensor temperature to more that 35c below ambient, which can greatly reduce dark current generation and sensor noise even with extended exposure times.

The unique dark current suppression technology can even further reduce dark current noise.

At a cooling temperature of 0 °, the dark current noise is only 0.003e/s/pix. Which means 300s exposure can only cause 0.9e dark current noise, which is completely negligible!

Note:ASI6200 Pro camera requires 1A current from the USB, if your PC can not provide enough current, please  use an external 12V power supply to power the camera .

 

USB3.0 & 256M DDR3 Memory

The ASI6200MM Pro is equipped with a USB 3.0 transmission interface and a built-in 256MB DDR3 cache to ensure stable and secure data transmission. Under long exposure, it effectively avoids frame dropping and greatly reduces the glow effect caused by slow reading speed.DDR buffer

    Hello,
    On the USB bus is the current consumption 650mA? It is a lot for most PC who are limited to 500mA. So if we plug the 12V plug does the camera reduce the consumption on USB 5V? Thanks

      ASI6200 requires more power to run than other cooled camera so we need to connect 12V 5A cable to give it enough power.

    The ASI 6200 Mono appears to as an ideal camera for 2×2 binning as frames will still have huge 4788×3194 pixels with 7,2 um, which is a great fit to my setup and incredible 200ke- full well.

    Are there any hard or software limitations for binning? Internal electronics are able to handle the huge full capacity?
    Of course there is always option for software binning but I would prefer to use it straight on imaging.

    Thanks,
    Alexander

      Yes, the internal electronics are able to handle the huge full capacity.

    Hi. Another question. I’m building the calibration frames library for the camera. I have noticed that the bias frames are particularly flat. They do not seem to contain much information at all. Does this mean that bias frames are not required for this camera and I can avoid them altogether ? Thanks.

    Hi. I have noticed that by connecting the camera with the ASCOM driver, the gain is limited to 100 while I know that the max gain should be around 400 or even more. Can you comment on that ? Is it a bug ? Will it be fixed ? Thank you.

      Do not worry. It is not a bug.
      We limit the gain in 0-100 in DSO imaging which is enough for using.

    Why you don’t include M54-M54 thin adapter in the package ? M42 and M48 adapters will limit 43mm diagonal of this sensor and produce severe vignetting !

    1. Is there a UV/IR filter? If so, can it be removed? Need camera with no UV/IR filter or AA filter installed.

    2. What is the spectral response? UV to IR?

    3. Is this the IMX 455 Sony chip?

    4. Are the mounting adapters threaded onto it to allow insertion directly into a focusing tube?

    5. Appears to be bolted to filter wheel etc. Cannot tell methods of attachment from pictures shown. Do you have a manual for this yet you could send?

    6. If this meets my requirements, I will be buying a a mono version and a color version.
