ZWO has packaged the popular ASI120MM Astronomy Camera with a 1.25″ Manual Filter Wheel & 1.25″ LRGB Filter Set. This is a perfect set up for someone new to astro imaging! Below you will find descriptions for each ZWO kit component.
ZWO ASI120MM-S CMOS Camera
- The engine behind this camera is the CMOS MT9M034 1/3″ Sensor, which offers a top end resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels or 1.2 megapixels. This sensor has a peak QE of 75%, and has no fixed pattern noise (FPN). Long exposure times are supported up to 1,000 seconds, or 16.66 minutes. As we mentioned earlier, another impressive feature of the ZWO ASI120-S is its ability to deliver up to 256 frames per second (FPS) at reduced resolution settings and a substantial 72 FPS at full resolution. This wide range of capture resolution settings allows amateur astronomers to conduct planetary and deep sky imaging without having to switch cameras.
