ZWO ASI290MM USB3.0 Monochrome CMOS Camera with Autoguider Port

Discover the ASI290MM - Your Planetary and Deep Sky Imaging Companion

The ZWO ASI290MM features a back-illuminated, 6.46mm diagonal size (type 1/2.8") Square Pixel Array Monochrome CMOS Image Sensor with IMPROVED VISIBLE LIGHT and NEAR INFRARED SENSITIVITY, supporting 1080p resolution. Developed by Sony, the IMX290LQR and IMX291LQR sensors offer improved sensitivity in the visible-light and near-infrared light regions for industrial applications. With a 2.9 µm-square unit pixel and back-illuminated structure, this camera excels in low illumination, offering two or more times the sensitivity in the visible-light region and three or more times the sensitivity in the near-infrared light region compared to existing Sony products.

Technical Advantages:

  • Sensor: 1/2.8″ CMOS IMX290/IMX291
  • Resolution: 2.1 Mega Pixels 1936×1096
  • Pixel Size: 2.9µm
  • Exposure Range: 32µs-2000s
  • Autoguider Port: For seamless guiding
  • ST4 Guider Port: Supported
  • Read Noise: 1e
  • High Sensitivity, especially in IR range

Unlock the Potential for Planetary and Lunar Imaging

Designed to excel in planetary and lunar imaging, the ASI290MM camera delivers impressive sensitivity, low noise, and small pixel sizes, making it an ideal choice for capturing tiny objects like Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus, and more. Its high sensitivity also allows for imaging small deep sky objects up to a certain level, supporting exposure times up to 2000 seconds.

Get the Best Image Quality with Optional IR Cut-Off Filter

Due to its high IR sensitivity and versatile usage, an IR cut-off filter is not built-in. We recommend purchasing the ZWO IR Cut-Off Filter separately to optimize the camera's performance in various imaging scenarios.

Autoguider Port for Dual Functionality

Like other ZWO cameras, the ASI290MM comes with an AUTOGUIDER PORT, allowing you to utilize it for guiding when not used for imaging. Pair it with another deep sky imaging camera for enhanced versatility and convenience.
