Product description

The ASI071MC-Cool uses the proven Sony APS-C format chip, which is used in SLR cameras.
The relatively large APS-C sensor (diameter: 28.4mm) in the ASI071MC-Cool is combined with the advantages of an astronomy camera:

  • electronic shutter - unlike DSLR cameras, there are no vibration problems with the mechanics.
  • active cooling of up to 40°C below ambient temperature ensures low sensor noise. This allows long exposure times for dim nebulae and galaxies.
  • high speed - up to 134fps (frames per second) are possible for planetary shots! This 'freezes' the air turbulence and reveal details on the Moon and planets.
  • computer controllable - Windows, Mac OS, Linux. You can control the whole range of programs available, for example, SharpCap freeware.
  • versatile connection options - 1.25" and 2" nosepieces are included. But the best way to connect remains via the built-in T2 thread, with the back focus of the camera then being 17.5mm.
  • the camera uses USB 3.0 for rapid and loss-free data transfer. It will also work with USB 2.0.
  • it comes with an AR clear glass filter to protect the camera. This allows full light transmission, including in the infrared range. Conversely, this means you will need an IR cutting filter if IR light needs to be blocked.
  • the clear glass filter can also be heated to prevent fogging. The delivery includes desiccant cartridges, and these can also be re-ordered.



Supported resolutions and frame rates at 14Bit ADC: 4944×3284 10fps, 1920×1200 28fps, 1280×1080 33fps, 640×480 70fps, 320×240 134fps

Colour or mono? Black and white cameras have the advantage of higher sensitivity and resolution than colour cameras. However, more effort is required to obtain a colour image. You also need colour filters and a filter wheel

Software and drivers are available for free download on the manufacturer's website: software drivers

Cooled ZWO ASI cameras need a 12V power supply, If you don’t have one, please check the recommended accessories for a suitable power adapter.
