Utilizing Sony STARVIS technology, the incredible Sony IMX715 sensor within the ASI7154MC makes this ZWO camera optimal for detailed images of our Moon, the planets within our solar system, and even some small deep-sky objects such as galaxies.

Noting its low readout noise, high QE of 80%, and its small pixel size of 1.45um, the details captured within your images are sure to impress. Resolve intricate features on our Moon, the cloud bands on Jupiter, and the stunning rings on Saturn. Engage in deep-sky lucky imaging and reveal details on endless galaxies and nebulae! The ultra-high sensitivity provided by the ASI715MC is sure to take your astrophotography to the next level. Rest assured knowing the data you captured will be safely transferred to your computer with the integrated UBS 3.0 port. The incredible 5GB bandwidth ensures highly efficient data transmission and the 256MB DDR cache safely secures your images during the transfer. Wanting to upgrade your astrophotography rig with an incredible guide camera? The included ST4 port turns your ASI715MC into a highly capable guide camera, assisting your telescope mount in its tracking abilities.

What sets one astrophotography camera apart from another? How is performance measured? Camera and sensor manufacturers provide certain interconnected specifications that give insight into the performance of a camera. These measurements include quantum efficiency, read noise, full well depth, gain, and dynamic range. 

The ASI715MC utilizes the ultra sensitive 8.46 megapixel Sony IMX715 sensor. This 1/2.8” (5.6x3.2mm) sized sensor has a full well capacity of 6.03Ke, 12-bit ADC, and a resolution of 3864x2192. The small pixel size of 1.45um featured on this camera allows for resolution of intricate details, making the ASI715MC ideal for planetary photography as well as small deep-sky objects

Remarkable Signal to Noise Ratio
How effective a camera sensor is at converting the captured photons into signal is what’s known as quantum efficiency. The higher the quantum efficiency, the more signal the sensor is able to produce. The ASI715MC has an incredible peak QE of 80%, making this camera ultra sensitive in capturing the light it’s exposed to. Another important aspect in camera sensors and the quality of images it produces is its readout noise. The lower the readout noise, the clearer and sharper the images become. This ASI715MC has a low read out noise of 0.72e, and when paired with its high quantum efficiency of 80%, this camera offers an incredible signal to noise ratio allowing for photos filled with spectacular detail


USB 3.0 and ST4 Guide Port
The ASI715MC comes with a USB 3.0 port for efficient transmission of data. This incredible 5 GB bandwidth allows the ASI715MC to run at 45.1FPS, transferring each frame effectively and proficiently. Ensuring reliability of data transmission, the built-in 256MB DDR cache ensures the captured images are preserved and safely relayed. This ZWO camera also comes with an ST4 port, offering the ability to turn this ASI715MC into an excellent guide camera
