This set consists of:
The camera has a large sensor and small pixels - very high detail resolution with a wide field of view. This allows you to image galaxy clusters with fine details visible in each galaxy.
The camera is particularly suitable for 'fast' and high-resolution optics such as apochromatic refractors or FastStar systems. High-resolution images are even possible when using shorter focal lengths.
The advantages of the new version 3
The camera comes equipped with an AR clear glass filter and is hence also transparent in the infrared spectrum. A corresponding cutting filter is required if the infrared range is to be blocked.
The camera and accessories permit many adaptation options - 1.25", 2" or T2 (M42x0.75). The distance between the T2 connection thread and camera sensor is 17.5 millimetres.
Supported resolutions and frame rates (fps = frames per second):
12 bit ADC
In addition to the camera and the adapters, a USB cable, an ST4 auto-guider cable and a CD with drivers for PC, Mac, Linux are also included.
Software and drivers are available for free download on the manufacturer's website: http://astronomy-imaging-camera.com/software/
The EFWmini motorized filter wheel is very thin - the filters are only 10mm away from the sensor, so even with high-intensity telescopes there is no vignetting. If you work with unmounted 31mm filters instead of 1.25" filters, you can even use objectives up to f/2, without any annoying vignetting!
Power consumption is very low. You can, for example, easily operate the filter wheel through the camera's USB hub (if available). Delivery also includes a 1.25" holder if you do not wish to use the T-thread.
The L-RGB filter set is optimized for the ZWO Camera ASI 1600 MM-Cool V3 Mono, i.e. the colour weighting is matched to the sensor of this camera.
In combination with the ASI 1600 MM Mono cooled camera, this filter set is ideal for deep sky astrophotography! The uncooled version of the camera is ideal for great shots of the planets!
