Product Description

The ZWO ASI183MC Pro is a an extremely sensitive camera at an affordable price.  The cooled camera is capable of deep space images and exposures as long as 30 minutes.  The back illuminated Sony IMX183 sensor has 20.4 megapixel resolution and a 5496x3672 pixel array.

The ASI183MC Pro also has a 256mb DDR3 memory buffer to help with reliablity of data transfer.  

This camera is great for deep space and planetary imaging. 

Reliable Mechanics

ASI183MC Pro has same mechanics as ASI1600 Pro. There are four screws that seal the sensor chamber. Our camera design has been extensively tested and is very stable. Even when used in higher humidity environments, ASI183MC Pro will still work fine without dew problems

The ZWO ASI183MC 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.

ASI183MC 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.
