About this product

Model:  zwo_asi678mc
Part Number:  ZWO ASI678MC

The ASI678MC uses Sony's latest generation IMX678 CMOS sensor with an excellent near-infrared response.

The sensor frame format is 1.1.8", with 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.

Superb camera
08 June 2024  | 

Bought this primarily as an all sky camera, which is how Im using it at the moment, with a view to doing some planetary work when the planets are next in a favourable position.
The supplied lens is perfect for the all sky set up, and gives a near 360 view.
Good quality camera with an excellent spec, and first class service from FLO as always.

Great camera
05 February 2024  | 

So far a great little camera, I bought this to build an all sky camera and with ZWOs own software its so easy. I also plan to have a go at planetary imaging with it , if all goes well I see a second transaction taking place, thanks FLO I was expecting a 3day delivery and received it the next day! It was like Xmas all over.

Could remove the need for a Barlow
25 November 2022  | 

Ive just shot Jupiter with my EdgeHD 11 and this camera.
The image nicely fills the frame at 640x480 with no need for a Barlow. Its also very fast when used with firecapture .
If they ever bring out a mono version I will be getting that as well.

ZWO ASI 678MC USB 3 Camera
03 October 2022  | 

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.....
