New cooled version of the ASI224MC Colour camera enables sensor cooling down to 35-40C degrees below ambient!

Extremely low read noise (1.5 e) and high sensitivity, especially in IR range.

A good choice for lunar, solar and planetary imaging.

The cooler requires a 12v power supply at 2.5A or 3A max DC adapter. The camera can be used without the external power supply but will run in the normal, uncooled mode.
