No idea what will be going with the chip shortages and supply line disruptions.  Have not seen a ZWO sale in well over 16 months.  Pat Utah :)

How do you like that ZWO 183 mono??

    Was thinking about getting one, read a bunch of negative posts due to amp glow, wound up getting a ZWO 178 mono instead.  But wanting a larger chip camera  4/3  is size of choice now.     Joe

My183 mono is for Lunar observing only. 1600 mono is on sale now would be a better choice or the 294 mono, which is the newest ZWO product...  Pat Utah smile.gif

Interestingly, not all their cameras are on sale this time round. For example, the 183 does not seem to be on sale.

ZWO is referring to it as the "ZWO Summer Sale", so it sounds like a seasonal sale for them. In the past, they have also had  holiday/ end-of-year sales too.

It depends on what scope you are going to use. If you plan to use a small refractor, camera lens or any other short focal length optics, then I would go for the 183 mono for the extra resolution from the smaller pixels.
