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! 

Note: 

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.
