Description

The ZWO ASI094MC Pro camera uses the Sony IMX094 full-frame sensor (36 mm x 24 mm). It is ZWO's first full-frame cooled camera. This camera has 7376 x 4928 pixels, and supports BIN2, BIN3, BIN4 mode. The pixel size is 4.88 μm x 4.88 μm.  This camera provides 14bit ADC and its full-well capacity is 52000e.

The largest improvement between the "cool" and the "pro" version is that the pro camera includes a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer to help data transfer more stably and reduce or completely eliminate amp-glow issues present in slower USB2.0 transfer rates.

Specifications

ASI094 Pro offers very good performance for astrophotography. Low read noise, high dynamic range, QE peak 56% and much more.

IMX094 vs. KAI-11002

Compared with old full frame CCDs such as  KAI-11002,  IMX094 has higher resolution, higher QE, lower read noise and faster FPS.

USB 3.0 Port & USB2.0 HUB

The USB 3.0 port can provide 5Gb bandwidth to let the ASI094 Pro run at 5 fps at full resolution.

ASI094 Pro camera's power consumption (650mA@5V) is much higher than other cameras. But USB3.0 can provide 1000mA current, so the ASI094 Pro can run standalone under USB3.0 host: it doesn’t need external power supply.

You need to connect the external 12v power supply if you connect the camera to USB 2.0 host which can only provide 500ma current.

We recommend 12V at 3A or more DC adapter for cooler power supply. A battery from 9-15V is also suitable for cooler power supply.

With the USB 2.0 Hub, you can connect various accessories for easier and cleaner cable management. There are 2 short 0.5m USB2.0 cables included with the ASI094 Pro. The hub itself will need to be powered from an external power source.

Cooling and Anti-Dew Heater

ASI094 Pro has a 2-stage TEC cooling system for cooling -35℃ below ambient. You will need external DC power supply to power on the cooler, or a separate AC-DC power converter.  

The anti-dew heater can heat the protective window to avoid any dew problems before they occur. The heater power is around 6W and can be turned off  in software to save power.
