ZWO ASI1600MM Monochrome CMOS Imaging Camera

The ZWO ASI1600MM is the first camera by ZWO that is designed specifically for deep-sky imaging, but it also does a great job on the planets as well! The ASI1600MM uses a monochrome 4/3" CMOS 16 MP sensor with a 4656 x 3520 array of 3.8um pixels. This sensor has extremely low read noise of 1.2e and has a maximum of 23 FPS at full resolution.

The ZWO ASI1600MM body has been updated to include a removable M42 adapter that can reduce back focus to just 6.5 mm. A high speed USB 3.0 port, an ST4 guide port, a 1/4” tripod thread mount on the back, and an AR window are also features of this ZWO DSO camera. The included software is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems. Everything you will need to control your ZWO camera is available and easily downloadable in one centralized location on the ZWO website. Click here for ZWO Software Downloads.

ASIair Pro Camera Control (sold separately)

There is a wireless camera control solution available for this camera, and it's called the ZWO ASIair Pro. 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 Pro to your camera order, you can find it in the suggested accessories section.
