The ASI183 cameras has a very large full well capacity（15000e for such small pixel size, 1.6e read noise @ 30DB, and 12stops dynamic range @ Gain=0. The ASI183 cameras also utilise firmware features to minimise amplifier glow for maximum performance in astrophotography.
Fast FPS can be used in solar and lunar imaging, as well as for live viewing/EAA.The high speed readout may also be used for real-time focusing, true lucky imaging of double stars and other small objects, planetary imaging of the major planets in the solar system, and much more.

Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R technology, gives it excellent Deep Sky performance. ASI183 QE peak reaches a remarkable 84%. In the Ha channel, QE is still over 60%.
Having high QE means more of the light that enters your telescope and reaches the sensor is actually used. With 84% peak Q.E. and no less than ~50% within the visible spectrum, the ASI183 will utilise a high percentage of the light that reaches it, improving your signal quality.
The dark current of the ASI183 is extremely low, based on our test results.
USB 3.0 Port: Provide 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI183 to run at 19 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 19 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution(20.18Mega).
ST4 Port: can be used connect with auto guide port of mount, for guiding.
