ASI2600MM Pro uses Sony’s latest back-illuminated IMX571 APS-C format native 16-bit ADC sensor. It’s one of the most anticipated astronomy cameras of 2021. Here is some of the reasons why:
Like the colour version, the ASI2600MM Pro also has a very light weight of just 700 grams.
This is a 26MP camera featuring a small pixel size of 3.76um yet also having the incredible ability of accommodating a large well depth of 50ke.
The sensor length and width are 23.5mm * 15.7mm. The diagonal is 28.3mm.
As one of the few CMOS astronomy cameras with 16-bit ADC on the market, ASI2600MM Pro was conceived having in mind the optimal characteristics for astrophotography. This 16bit ADC is not a CCD 16bit ADC. It can really achieve a dynamic range output of 14 stop, which will significantly improve the image sharpness and contrast, and also create smoother and more natural contrast transitions (as well as colour gradients when using different types of filters).
