The ZWO ASI 224MC is a popular planetary camera with extremely low read noise (1.5e) and high sensitivity, especially in infrared spectrum.

  ASI 224MC

The ZWO ASI 224MC installs the IMX224 which uses the SONY Exmor with NIR Technology.

The USB 3.0 Port provides 5Gbps bandwidth and lets the camera run at 64fps (12bit, normal mode) or 150fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution (1.2Mega). For planets that cover a small area of the sensor, the fps can be increased to over 250 per second by selecting a small ROI (region of interest). 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. 

This camera is equipped with a ST4 port as guiding alternative.
