The ASI678MC uses Sony's latest generation IMX678 CMOS sensor with excellent near infra red response.
Its frame format is 1.1.8" and it features 2um pixels in a 3840x2160 array.
In ADC 12-bit mode the ASI678MM can output 47.5 frames per second at full resolution and it has a read out noise level as low as 0.6e
The ASI678MC is the ideal upgrade from the ASI178MC and features zero amp glow, lower read noise and higher sensitivity.
The excellent near IR sensitivity ensures the ASI678MC will work very well for NIR Planetary imaging with a suitable NIR filter.

Iíve just shot Jupiter with my EdgeHD 11 and this camera.The image nicely fills the frame at 640x480 with no need for a Barlow. Itís also very fast when used with firecapture .If they ever bring out a mono version I will be getting that as well.
I received the camera , and got it working on my Windows10 laptop after updating updating the driver and ASIStudio from the ZWO website . I had a chance to image Jupiter with my Celestron 8SE and got some good results with reasonable colour and detail on the planet . I also have the 642 NIR filter for imaging in the near-infra red , and have ordered the ZWO UV-IR cut filter (1,25in ) . I look forward to further imaging of Jupiter , Saturn and also some lunar imaging.....
