The ASI 294MC is the first camera with the latest Sony IMX294CJK sensor: the ideal astro camera for every conceivable application! The "back-illuminated" Sony CMOS sensor ensures maximum sensitivity and therefore short exposure times. With just 30 seconds of exposure time and subsequent stacking, you'll be able to capture faint nebulae and galaxies with this camera - without any active cooling! The main advantages of the camera at a glance: USB 3.0 for a fast download - can also be operated with USB 2.0 Very sensitive CMOS sensor: quantum efficiency in the maximum over 75% (about 530nm) Good resolution due to relatively small pixels Supplied with AR clear glass filter, which means full passage also in the infrared. If the IR is to be blocked, an IR cut filter is needed. HCG mode - if Gain (pre-amplification) is higher than 120 (12 db), the readout noise will be reduced below 2e - Result: Despite extremely high sensitivity, you will obtain low-noise images. High full-well capacity: even bright stars do not burn anymore, they get a better signal-to-noise ratio. Big scope of delivery: adapters, cables and more
