The ZWO ASI 485MC is a professional colour planetary camera containing the Sony STARVIS IMX485 CMOS backlit colour sensor which has a large diagonal of 1/1.2" and a resolution of 8.28 MPx. The sensor is effectively the same as the ASI462MC but four times bigger.

 

 

The sensor has a maximum QE up to 85% at 530nm. This extremely high sensitivity across the visible light spectrum and very low readout noise make it ideal for high resolution planetary, solar and lunar imaging.

 

The USB 3.0 Port provides 5Gbps bandwidth and lets the camera run at 27.2fps (12bit, normal mode) or 39fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution (8.2 Megapixels). Frame rate can be limited by the power of the computer and the writing speed of your hard disk. For higher performance it is suggested to use Solid State Drives. 

The ASI485MC has a HCG mode which effectively reduces readout noise at high gain settings while preserving the same wide dynamic range that you would get at low gain. From 80 gain and higher, HCG mode will automatically activate, giving a read noise as low as 0.7e- with a dynamic range close to 11 stops.
