Product Description

Our brand new cooled version of  ASI224MC Color Camera allows the sensor to be cooled to 35C to 40C degrees below ambient!

Here is a 60s long exposure dark file of this Camera

Review on FaceBook

 

ASI224MC has a 1/3″ and 1.2M pixels sensor IMX224 with SONY Exmor and NIR Technology.

Extremely low read noise (1.5 e) and high sensitivity especially in IR range.

Very suitable for astronomy planetary and small DSO imaging.

 

Relative QE Curve, we estimate the Peak Value should between 75%-80%

QE ASI224

Super Low Read Noise less than 1e which can compare with sCMOS or EMCCD sensors

 

224 Gain RN DR FW vs gain

This camera can run without external power supply in normal mode

we recommends 12V at 2.5A or 3A  max DC adapter for cooler power supply

  1. :

    Greetings!
    I’ve been experimenting with an uncooled ASI224 as a spectroscopic
    detector and I’m very impressed. The low readnoise makes up for
    the limited dynamic range: just add lots of shorter exposures together.
    However, there is readout amplifier glow present in long exposures
    (10s of seconds to a few minutes). Are there plans to turn off the amp
    during long exposures, in upcoming versions of the driver (is there
    even circuitry for doing this)?

    Thanks
    Chris
