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! 

Notes: 

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.
