ZWO ASI385MC Color CMOS Astronomy Camera



Sony IMX385LQR CMOS Image Sensor



Developed by Sony Semiconductor Solutions, the IMX385LQR CMOS sensor achieves double the sensitivity of the existing IMX185LQJ. Best equipped for industrial applications as picture quality is pursued at low illuminance required by cameras for this purpose, and pixels are mounted with a sensitivity of 2350 mV, the highest sensitivity of all Sony imaging sensors. To further optimize this sensor for industrial applications, SN1s of 0.13 1x are realized via the mounting of an internal programmable gain amplifier and high conversion gain pixels, while High Dynamic Range technology is combined with enhanced near-infrared light sensitivity.



Astrophotography Performance



With low read noise, high dynamic range, 80%+ QE peak, AR protective window, and more, the ASI385MC delivers excellent astro-imaging performance.



USB 3.0 & ST-4 Ports



The USB 3.0 port supplies 5 gb bandwidth to allow the ASI385 to run at 67 fps in 12-bit normal mode, or 120 fps in 10-bit high speed at full 2.12 MP resolution. Guiding is enabled via a mount auto guiding port to ST-4 port connection.



ASIair Camera Control (sold separately)


There is a wireless camera control solution available for this camera, and it's called the ZWO ASIair. This small wireless module allows you to focus, take images, make adjustments with your smartphone or tablet, and even do plate solving and computerized mount control with the built-in SkySafari bridge. If you'd like to add an ASIair to your camera order, you can find it in the suggested accessories section on the lower left.
