    ZWO ASI385MC Cooled Color CMOS Astronomy Camera


    Astrophotography Performance

    The ZWO ASI385MC Cooled CMOS Camera provides low read noise, high dynamic range, a peak QE of over 80%, an AR protective window, and more for superb astrophotography performance.


    Sony IMX385LQR CMOS Image Sensor

    The IMX385LQR CMOS sensor, designed by Sony Semiconductor Solutions, achieves twice the sensitivity of the current IMX185LQJ model. By pursuing picture quality at low illuminance, mounting pixels with a sensitivity of 2350 mV, attaining SNR1s of 0.13 1x via an internal programmable gain amplifier and high conversion gain pixels, and combining High Dynamic Range with improved near-infrared light sensitivity, the IMX385LQR is optimally suited for industrial applications.


    Cooling System

    This CMOS Color Camera features a two-stage TEC cooling system to deliver extremely deep 40-45ºC below ambient cooling. An external power supply is required to run the cooler. While an AC-DC power adapter is not included with this camera, you can add one as an optional accessory.


    USB 3.0 Port & USB 2.0 Hub

    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.

    To supply power to the cooler, ZWO recommends either a 12V at 3A~5A or more DC adapter (2.1*5.5, center positive) or 9-15V battery.

    The USB 2.0 hub offers a method for connecting a wide range of accessories like a filter wheel, guide camera, and electronic focuser for better cable management. Two short 0.5 meter USB2.0 cables are included in this package. This hub can be powered via an external source if connected.
