The ASI174MM mini camera integrates the Sony IMX174LLJ / IMX174LQJ 1/1.2″ sensor (11.3 mm x 7.1 mm). It is ZWO first mini camera. This camera has 1936 x 1216 pixels. The pixel size is 5.86 μm x 5.86 μm. This camera provides 12bit ADC and its QE peak is 77%.
The ASI174MM Mini boasts a USB2.0 type C port, so the USB can be plugged in any direction. It also has an ST4 port so that the camera can be hooked directly to the autoguiding port of a mount.
This is a great camera for planetary imaging, and also an excellent guide camera thanks to its fantastic QE and small lightweight body.

What is in the box?
ASI mini camera box includes all necessary cables, drivers, adapters, and manual.
ASI174 and ASI290 mini camera have very beautiful outlooks, small size, lighter weight.
|ASI290 mini is designed for precise guiding. 2.9um pixel size can give you a higher arcsec/pixel than 224 or 120 camera. Which means in same guide scope, 290mini can detect slighter movement of stars. ASI290 mini can improve about 30% guide precision than 120mm.|
|ASI174 mini is designed for Big FOV guiding. This is very useful in OAG to looking for a guide star. When you using OAG guider to work with Ritchey-Chretien or Schmit-Cassegrain telescope, the hardest part is to looking for a guide star. ASI174 mini have 1/1.2″ big sensor which means you can have 4 times bigger Fov than 120mm.|
The Mini camera is very suitable for OAG since it has a much larger focus range than other ZWO cameras.
