ZWO ASI432MM Planetary Camera
For those who want to capture images of the sun, this ZWO ASI432MM Monochrome camera is the ideal travel companion. The ZWO ASI432MM camera has a larger frame and pixel size than the ASI174MM camera, making it the best choice for solar and lunar imaging. Its large sensor format of 1.1″ and wide field of view make the ASI432 ideal for taking sharp pictures.
The ASI432MM uses a Sony-IMX432 global shutter CMOS sensor. Its frame size is 1.1″, with large 9.0um pixels, 1.77 million pixels (1608*1104).In ADC 12-bit mode, it can output 120 frames per second at full resolution and has a read out noise level as low as 2.4e.
Large format, large FOV
AS1432MM has a large sensor format of 1.1inch and hence a large field of view. The area is almost twice that of ASl174MM, making it a better choice for solar imaging and lunar imaging than ASI174MM which is an already recognized solar imaging camera.
Large pixels, high sensitivity
The 9um pixel size is almost 1.5 times larger than the ASI174MM pixel size.
With its high sensitivity, images with finer colors and subtler details are now possible. You can have full trust in its solar imaging performance regarding to both full disk and local details.
Being a global shutter camera, ASl432MM also features a very high fps rate. Thus, it’s not only good for solar and lunar imaging, also suitable for you to photograph ISS and other fast-moving objects.
Full well depth
ASI432MM has a full well depth of 97ke, which is 3 times larger than that of ASI174MM. The larger full well depth provides the camera with stronger sensitivity. When we want to photograph the Sun surface and prominences at the same time, a very good quality image can be obtained.
ASI432MM is an upgraded version of AS|174MM. It adopts Sony IMX432 sensor and is integrated with the advanced 3rd Gen Pregius technology.
It uses global shutter, just as its predecessor. But its sensor format and pixel size are apparently much larger. Also, when you compare AS1432MM to ASI174MM, you’ll find AS1432MM has a 3 times larger full well capacity and much lower dark current noises.
Anti-Amp Glow Function
The anti-amp glow function which is independently developed by ZWO and used in ASI cameras effectively limits the amp glow on sensors and maximizes the cameras’ photographic performance. Since it is implemented directly at the hardware level, it does not require software control.
