ASI2600 Manual4. QE Graph & Read NoiseQE and Read noise are the most important parts to measure the performance of a camera.Higher QE and Lower read noise are needed to improve the SNR of an image.For the 2600 Sensor, the peak value for QE is around 80%.Read noise includes pixel diode noise, circuit noise and ADC quantization error noise. The lowerthe better.As you can see, the Read Noise of the ASI2600 camera is extremely low when compared withtraditional CCD cameras. In addition, it is with Built-in HCG mode, which can effectively reduceread noise at high gain and keep the same wide dynamic range for this camera as at low gain.Depending on your target, you can set the gain lower for higher dynamic range (longer exposure)or set the gain higher for lower noise (such as short exposure or lucky imaging).6

Getting to know your camera5.1 External View45565172522.214.171.124.5.6.7.Protective Window, IR CUT, D60*2mmTilt adjustment ring, M42*0.75 thread, thickness 5mm, can be removedRadiatorUSB2.0HubUSB3.0/USB2.0 InterfaceCooling power supply DC power port: size 5.5 * 2.1mm, positive inside and negative outside,12V@3A power is recommended.Ultra-quiet magnetic levitation fan, will rotate only when the cooling is on.The camera can be placed on a holder ring for Cooled cameras with a 1/4” thread under thering.8
ASI2600 Manual5.2 Power ConsumptionASI2600 camera is with low power consumption, max at 4.7W USB3.0 cable is recommended forpower supply.Recommended power supply for cooling: 12V @ 3A DC adapter (5.5 2.1mm, center polepositive). Also suitable: lithium battery with 11-15V.Here is the ASI2600 cooling efficiency graph.5.3 DDR BufferThe ASI2600 Pro camera includes a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer to ensure the stability of datatransmission. Additionally, the use of a memory buffer minimizes amp-glow, which is caused bythe slow transfer speeds.9
ASI2600 Manual5.4 Cooling SystemThe Cooling system of ASI2600 Pro camera can precisely control the sensor temperature. Unliketraditional CCD, the ASI2600 camera has ultra-low readout noise, efficient cooling, and adjustablegain. There is no need to use ultra-long exposures to shoot targets, which significantly reduces therequirements for the photography system as well as the guide system. However, if you use shortexposures (for example, less than 100ms), the effect of cooling on the image will be little. Coolingsystem can be set to a minimum temperature of 35 below ambient temperature.Here’s the dark current curve of ASI2600 sensor between -20 and 30 5.5 Back Focus DistanceThe female flange to the sensor is 17.5mm. You can reach 55mm back focus distance with the21mm and 16.5mm extender included in the camera package.10
ASI2600 Manual5.6 Protective WindowThere is a protective window-IR CUT filter in front of the ASI2600 camera sensor, with 60mmdiameter and 2mm thickness.5.7 Analog to Digital Converter (ADC)The ASI2600 camera has a built-in 16bit ADC. 12bit ADC mode for output will be used when wedo hardware Bin, this camera also supports custom ROI partial readout mode, with faster framerate at small ROI resolutions.Please see below attached different frame rates under different resolutions on USB3.0 and USB2.0of ASI2600 in 16bit mode.Resolution16Bit .06fps320*24051.44fps51.44fps5.8 BinningThe ASI2600 camera supports bin2, bin3, bin4 software Binning mode and hardware bin2, bin3,11
ASI2600 Manualthe best advantage of hardware binning is the faster frame rates. If you don't care about speed, wesuggest you use software binning.5.9 Tilt AdjustmentThere are 3 sets of screws that can be used to tilt the sensor, to make it same with the primarymirror of Newtonian, two screws per set for screw in /out.You can refer to below:1. Take a starred image with the camera, you will easily find out the tilt part in the image throughthe software, and then adjust one or more sets of flange adjustment screws on the cameracorresponding to the image.2. Take another image after the sensor tilt adjustment, compare the new image with the previousone in the software. If the tilt issue is reduced, that means the adjustment is correct. Otherwise, theadjustment is wrong.3. Repeat step 2 until the stars in all corners are perfect.12

User Manual Replace a Pro 3 Camera battery You can leave the camera housing in place so the camera position stays the same. 1. Release the camera from the camera housing. Press the button on the charging port underneath the camera. The camera clicks as it disengages from the camera housing. 2. Pull the camera all the way out of the camera .
The camera need to over exposure when do prominence imaging. Over exposure will make the camera runs slower than normal mode and cause some broken frames. So you can try to turn down "USBTraffic" value to make the camera runs slower to solve it. 6. Driver installed corrected, and device can be found in device manager, but my camera preview
