Perhaps the most innovative Astronomy Camera company of the last few years ZWO keeps innovating! Their newest cameras the ZWO ASI1600 and the ZWO ASI071 offer bigger and better sensors and are priced considerably less then the competition! ZWO's ASI Monochrome and Color astronomy cameras aren't new the the amateur astronomy community though. Astrophotographers have been using ZWO CMOS Cameras to capture images of the Sun, Moon, Planets, Galaxies & Nebulae for years! Thats because ZWO imagers feature a multitude of frame rate settings which max out at 215 frames per second at reduced resolution. This characteristic gives astro photographers unprecedented flexibility while imaging. The body of each ZWO camera is beautifully CNC machined and comes equipped with ST4 Auto Guider Ports, USB 2.o or 3.0 ports, and many models come with 2-stage TEC regulated cooling! An optional, and very affordable, five position 1.25" filter wheel and an LRGB filter set can be added to the monochrome version of the ZWO cameras for a complete imaging set-up! What's even better is that ZWO recently added an entire line of electronic filter wheels and narrow band filters to their product assortment!
The brain behind ZWO cameras, filters, and astronomy accessories is that of Sam Wen. Sam's commitment to innovation and quality is on point as he eats, breathes and drinks imaging. High Point Scientific was fortunate enough to get a tour of ZWO's facility in SuZhou, China and to say we were impressed by their facility, their controls and their commitment to quality would be an understatement.
