As the skies are cloudy and my new telescope mount is still not fixed onto the telescope pier – because I still need to work on the adapter for it, I thought I would try the ZWO ASI1600MM-cool with the Samyang 135mm F2.0 in daylight to answer a few further questions I had.

The next test I wanted to do with the ZWO ASI1600MM-cool, was to test its gain settings and compare it with my back-lit CMOS ASI178MM-cool. Also, I thought I would post images taken in daylight (albeit using an Astronomik CLS-CCD filter) to show the amount of grain or noise at each gain setting up to Gain 500.

Over two months ago, I became aware that ZWO was coming up with a cooled larger sensor imaging camera which is even more suited to astrophotography. Obviously I was very keen to test out this camera, named ASI1600MM-cool. Courtesy of Zoltan from 365Astronomy, and Sam from ZWO, I have been given the privilege to test this camera out.
