OK LOL well you knew it was coming : ) 

 

I received the 1st ASI2600MM Pro from ZWO on Friday along with with a 2" filter wheel. 

 

this is the first unit off the ranks and first outside of ZWO so v pleased to see an APS-C mono in red!

 

Just waiting on some 2" Antlia Pro filters to be delivered today and then i can start testing later this week.

 

Initial darks look good and file sizes are 51mb for bin 1 (6248 x 4176)

 

more in the next few days ... 

 

ZWO will be releasing more as the availability of the sensor improves but its finally here and a reality 

 

Now to see how that new sensor performs smile.gif

 

Cheers

Of course I'm also super excited.  So is this a Beta-Tester version, or do they start shipping the pre-orders now/soon?

Looking forward to your review. I have one on order with ZWO. It’s been a long wait for an APS-C mono sensor.
