ZWO ASI120 Mini Monochrome Camera

All-Star Telescope's Take

The ZWO ASI120 mini is an incredible planetary camera, but it really shines as a guide camera.  We find it pairs really well with the ZWO mini guide scope for a compact and effective guiding package.  

Summary

The ASI120MM Mini (ASI120MINI) camera integrates the AR0130CS 1/3″ sensor (4.8 mm x 3.6 mm). It is a new model in the “mini”-series of cameras from ZWO. This camera has 1280 x 960 pixels with a pixel size of 3.75 μm x 3.75 μm. It provides 12-bit ADC and the QE peak is almost 80%.

Detailed Description

The ASI120 mini-camera offers you very good performance for planetary imaging as well as for guiding. Low read noise, high dynamic range, AR protective window and much more are just some of the key characteristics that set it apart from the competition.

120Mini VS 120MM-S

Compared with the ASI120MM-S camera, the new 120-Mini has a sleeker design, less weight, and it can reach focus at the same position as an eyepiece.

USB2.0Port & ST4 Port

USB 2.0 Port: Mini camera has one USB2.0 type-C port. Type-C port is very popular in mobile phones, as it doesn’t matter which way you connect it (unlike for example type-A or type-B)

ST4 Port: The camera can be connected directly to the auto-guider port of the mount.

Why buy from All-Star Telescope

We like to say that we’re the biggest astronomy shop in Canada, which is a little like bragging about being the tallest dwarf.  The reality is that we’re a small, Canadian owned, family run business.  

We hold a large volume of inventory in our Edmonton warehouse, and ship daily.  We ship to the USA and globally, and it's worth noting that there is no duty on telescopes and accessories between Canada and the United States.  

We work to have the best selection of astronomy and astrophotography in Canada.  We are enthusiasts and work to help others enjoy the hobby that we love so much.  We're always interested in helping, reach out with any questions.

took it for a test drive

After trying the camera for 2 nights in a row, the camera did the job well. It matched up well with the rest of ZWO products and the ASIair.

ZWO ASI120MM Mini Camera and Guide Scope

I recently purchased this combination for my light-weight astrophotography setup that I plan to backpack into remote settings. I was initially apprehensive that the small aperture and censor size might not capture enough light to guide the system accurately. After having collected several nights of subexposures, I am happy to report that my concerns were unwarranted. The guiding accuracy was not at all compromised.

I have also been very impressed by All-Star Telescope’s remarkably prompt handling of my Internet orders. The new team are off to a good start.

Excellent Guide Camera

I bought this camera, along with the ZWO 30mm f4 Mini Guide Scope (ZWO-30F4) as a guide rig for my CGX 1100 Edge HD, with HyperStar. The guide camera and scope provided excellent tracking, allowing for pinpoint background stars, with no trails at all, on a 2 min exposure. Completely satisfied with this product.
