The ZWO ASI 1600GT combines a 5 positions filter wheel and the popular ASI 1600MM. 

ASI 1600MM

The ZWO ASI 1600GT installs the Panasonic MN34230 CMOS monochrome sensor which has a diagonal of 22.2mm and a resolution of 16.39 MPx. The internal electronic filter wheel can accommodate both 1.25" and 31mm filters, it is CNC machined and fully blackened to minimize internal reflection.This version of the ASI 1600 has a reduced back focus compared to the ASI 1600MM + standard filter wheel and it can play an important role for telescopes with a limited back focus such as Newtons or in instruments where the distance between the sensor and the reduced/corrector is limited. The maximum allowable height of the 1.25" filter is 7mm + 2.5mm for the thread.

The ZWO PRO cameras incorporate a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer that improves data transfer reliability and it minimizes the amp-glow caused by slow data transfer speeds.

The USB 3.0 Port provides 5Gbps bandwidth and lets the camera run at 14.7fps (12bit, normal mode) or 23fps (10bit, high speed mode) at full resolution (16 Mega). 

The USB 2.0 Hub allows to connect 2 USB controlled accessories such as a filter wheel, a guiding camera or an electronic focuser, reducing the amount of cables that run directly from your computer. 

The camera body incorporates 24 cooling fins and two fans for an efficient cooling. The 2 stages TEC cooling system allows a ΔT of 40°C-45°C below the ambient temperature. The cooling system requires an external power supply of 12V at 3-5A with a 2.1×5.5mm connector (positive tip).

The ASI 1600GT can be powered with a standard lead battery or a DC source between 9-15V.
