Product Description

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.

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%.

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.

Good products easy shipping

Delivery was faster than expected and the camera is working as it should. Will order my next telescope with all-star.

ASI120mm Mini

Works as advertised. Paired with a ZWO 30mm guide scope, provides easy multistar guiding on an AM5 and ASIair Plus. Very easy to set up and focus. USB-C connector feels a little flimsy but nothing major.

Works well with old and new software

We know this works with NINA and ASIAir. With ASCOM plug-ins I have found it also works great with CCDSoft V5 as well as MaxIm DL V5.2 as a guide camera. Nicely made, shame it doesn’t have a shutter for dark frames but that seems to be the case across the ZWO brand of cameras.

Perfect guide camera

Definitely the recommended guide scope to pair with the Asair plus or mini

Great for guiding

The camera is super sensitive just as you would expect from a mono for guiding
