Colour version of the hugely popular ASI120MM lunar and planetary imaging camera.
Compared to ZWO’s entry-level ASI034MC, the ASI120MC is better for planets (higher sensitivity) the Moon (larger sensor with more pixels) and guiding (larger sensor).
The ASI120MC is 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!
Supports 30FPS at it's maximum 1280X960 resolution and long time exposures up to 1000s!
The sensor is protected by a UV/IR cut anti-reflection 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.
To achieve the ASI120's maximum resolution you will requires a 480 mbs USB connection.
Not fully Mac OSX compatible, nor Windows though virtual machine. Windows though Bootcamp is recommended.
