I borrowed ZWO’s new camera – ASI174MM from a friend. Camera has T-thread and 2″ nosepiece outside. 2″ fits very well. Nice body finish.


The following is a single frame taken with SF-50/BORG 50FL=400mm f.l. and ASI174MM and only applies to a bit of level adjustment. That’s all. So still close to the uncooked image. This is my 1st monochrome solar imaging. So I don’t have any personal reference data to compare with others. But looks good enough to me as a single frame, which encourages me to go ahead time-lapse movie.

sunAs data shows, SONY’s IMX174 seems to be excellent sensor as expected.
