Product Details

ZWO’s APS-C Sensor Color Astronomy Camera

Based on the same large CMOS sensor used in many commercial DSLR systems, the ZWO ASI071MC-Pro is a color astronomy camera designed for deep-sky, lunar/solar, and planetary imaging. At the heart of the camera lies the Sony Exmor IMX071 ASP-C sensor with 16.2 megapixels, a resolution of 4944X3284, large 4.8μm pixels, and low 2.3e read noise. With regulated two-stage TEC cooling, this camera can cool the sensor to 35C to 40C below ambient to keep noise in your images to a minimum.

The fast USB3.0 interface on the ASI071MC-Pro allow transfer rates of up to 10 frames per second at full 4944X3284 resolution. At reduced resolution of 640x480, download rates up to 70 fps become possible. The camera enables exposure times of 64μs to 2000s (33.3 minutes).

DDR3 Memory Buffer and Fast Data Transfer

The ‘Pro’ designation of the camera comes from its internal 256MB DDR3 buffer for quick and stable data transfer and reduced amp glow.

TEC Sensor Cooling and USB3.0 Data Ports and USB2.0 Hub

The cooler is powered through a 2.1mm center-positive connector provides an input for the cooler power supply (not included). From the supply, the camera requires 12VDC @ 3A maximum.

The ASI071-Pro incorporates also a USB2.0 hub for powering accessories such as a guide camera and electronic focuser.

The ASI071MC-Pro has a robust and attractive CNC machined red-anodized aluminum body that stands up to heavy field use. An AR-coated glass window protects the sensor. The camera incorporates a 3.6W dew heater to keep the AR-coated window free of moisture during imaging runs. You can switch the heater off with the camera control software to save power on nights when the humidity is low. The camera also includes a new front plate that uses 6 screws to seal the sensor to reduce the effects of dew or frost. It also has a unique tilt adapter to reduce issues related to the tilt angle of the front of camera.

The ZWO ASI071MC-Pro color astronomy camera can be used with just about any telescope. It comes with a padded carrying bag, M42-M48 adapter, M54-M48 21mm extender and M48-M48 16.5mm extender, 2” cover, USB3.0 and USB2.0 cables, and a quick-start guide.

The camera has a diameter of 86mm and weighs 640 grams (21.2oz).
