The ZWO ASI290MC COOLED camera comes with a back-illuminated, 6.46mm diagonal size (type 1/2.8") Square Pixel Array Colour CMOS Image Sensor with IMPROVED VISIBLE LIGHT and NEAR INFRARED SENSITIVITY that supports 1080p.
The largest sensor, field of view, and pixel array for color and monochromatic planetary, lunar, solar imaging.
The celestron Skris series of cameras are the result of a marriage between Celestron and Imaging Source and feature quality components and high performance including Sony imaging sensors, high-speed USB 3.0 connections and 12-bit image output that out-performs regular 8-bit images provided by standard planetary CCDs.
The external camera housing has also been redesigned by Celestron for improved heat dissipation, minimising the temperature effect on CCD noise.

Not all 6 mega-pixel T.E.C. cooled astronomy cameras are created equal. The DS-616C XL is in a class of its own with 50% higher sensitivity in real-world applications (100% maximum) than other cameras using the same Sony CCD
