ASI cameras are renowned for excellent features and superior image quality with modern CMOS sensors installed. The ASI294MC-P camera uses the state-of-the-art "back-illuminated" Sony IMX294CJK sensor.

Sony specifies a sensor diagonal of 21.63 mm. However, measurements by ZWO have shown a true diagonal of 23.2 mm. The 4.3 µm pixels of the ZWO ASI294MC make this camera an all-rounder with highest sensitivity for short exposure times.

Advantages and features of the ASI MC294MCPro color camera:
  • USB 3.0 for a fast download - can also be used with USB 2.0
  • DDR3 memory buffer to help improve data transfer reliability. Additionally, the use of a memory buffer minimizes amp-glow, which is caused by the slow transfer speeds when the camera is used with a USB 2.0 port.
  • Powerful Peltier cooling up to 45 °C below environment.
  • Powerful Peltier cooling up to 35 °C below ambient
  • Sensitive CMOS sensor with 23.2 mm diagonal - 11.7 megapixels
  • Good resolution through 4.63 µm pixels
  • Comes with AR protection window - full transmission also in IR. If infrared should be blocked, an IR-cut filter is necessary.
  • Distance from T2 connection thread (female) to camera sensor: 17.5 mm
  • Very high sensitivity - QE more than 75% - ideal astronomy camera for dim objects
  • 14bit ADC
  • HCG mode - if gain is higher than 120 (12 dB), read noise is reduced below 2e- - result: low-noise images despite extremely high sensitivity.
  • Full well capacity 63700e - even bright stars do not burn out anymore, you get a better signal-to-noise ratio.
ASI294MC Pro has the same mechanics as ASI1600 Pro. There are four screws that seal the sensor chamber and the camera design has been extensively tested and is very stable. Even when used in higher humidity environments, ASI294MC Pro will still work well without dew problems.

USB 3.0 Port & USB2.0 HUB:
  1. USB 3.0 Port: Provide 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI294 Pro to run at 16 fps (14bit, normal mode) or 19 fps (12bit, high speed mode) at full resolution(11.7Mega).
  2. USB 2.0 HUB: can connect with various accessories, such as filter wheel, guide camera and electronic focuser, so you can better manage your cables. The ASI294 Pro includes two short 0.5m USB 2.0 cables. The integrated USB 2.0 hub is powered by the external power source if you connect one.
