This is a back illuminated CMOS one-shot-color camera. This features the Sony IMX178 imaging chip. It includes an all-sky lens to take great time laps shots from horizon to horizon. Very low read noise makes this a great camera for deep sky astrophotography.

ZWO's new cooled version of ASI178MC Color Camera allows the sensor to be cooled to 35C to 40C degrees below ambient, further reducing dark current and easy to gather dark calibration frames.

Here is a 60s long exposure dark file of this Camera


  • Back-illuminated  CMOS Image Sensor with 14bit ADC.
  • ASI178MM has a 1/1.8″ and 6.4M pixels sensor IMX178 with SONY STARVIS and Exmor R Technology.
  • Extremely low read noise(2.2 e) , high sensitivity and 14bit ADC, making it very suitable for both astronomy and microscopy high-resolution photographs.
  • This camera can run without an external power supply in normal mode, however, ZWO recommends a 12V at 2.5A or more DC adapter for cooler power supply
