The ZWO ASI120MC-S is a super-fast USB 3.0 version of the ASI120MC lunar and planetary imaging camera.
It can deliver up to 254x frames-per-second at reduced resolution or 60x FPS at full 1280X960 resolution!
The ASI120MC is also a capable guide-camera, particularly when used with finder-guiders and other fast / short guide-scopes.
Peak QE of 75%, (better than the ICX618) and no Fixed pattern Noise!
The sensor is protected by a UV/IR cut optical window so a separate 1.25" UV/IR rejection filter is not necessary.
Supplied with a 150-degree wide lens so you don't even need a telescope to start imaging the stars!
It is possible to screw the 150-degree accessory lens in too far resulting in a scratched optical window! Please adjust focus slowly and don't focus beyond infinity.
ASI120 cameras have been reviewed by some of the most popular astronomy magazines. You can read them in PDF documents:
