Product Description

The ZWO ASI1600MM Pro is a high performance camera at an affordable price.  The 1600mm Pro has the ability to handle deep space imaging with ease, and then move right on over to lunar/planetary/solar imaging.

The camera will perform with quite a large variety of instruments.  Out of the box it is best suited with focal lenghts from 300mm to 1,000mm.  If you decide to bin 2 x 2 then it works great with 1,000mm to 2,000mm of focal lengths. 

This particular CMOS camera has the ability to record 16mp videos at 23 frames per second, which is great for solar imaging. You can push the envelope and record 192.4 frames per second (320x240 resolution) allowing you to image planets.

The ASI1600mm Pro also has a 256mb DDR3 memory buffer to help with reliablity of data transfer.  The Pro also offers low read noise, low dark current, and high dynamic range.  The dynamic range is actually better than the KAF8300.

The ZWO ASI1600MM Pro has fantastic conectivity options.

USB 3.0 Port: Provides 5Gb bandwidth to make it possible for ASI1600 Pro to run at 14.7 fps (12bit, normal mode) or 23 fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution (16Mega).
USB 2.0 HUB: Can connect with various accessories,  including a filter wheel, guide camera or electronic focuser, allowing you to manage your cables better. There are two short 0.5m USB2.0 cables included with the ASI1600 Pro. The hub is powered by the external power supply if you choose to connect one.
The Cooling System.

ASI1600 Pro has 2 stage TEC cooling system to enable very deep cooling (40°C-45°C below ambient). The cooler requires an external power supply, which is not included with the camera. This is the one you will need.

We recommend using a 12V/3-5A or more DC adapter for cooler power supply (2.1×5.5, center positive).
Using a battery with 11-15V is also suitable for the cooler power supply.

ZWO has all their information available for download on their website in a perfectly laid out section. Check it out here for software and drivers and here for manuals and guides.

One of the coolest gadgets, and a neccessity according to a majority of ZWO users, is the ASIair Pro.  It is an all-in-one wireless camera solution.  The ASIair pro gives you control of focus, image taking, plate solving, and computerized mount control with the included SkySafari bridge all controlled by your smartdevice or tablet.  It really is pretty awesome.
