Anyone has an idea of this brand-less camera?

Got this! What about the brand? Is this affordable?

Does it come with an ASCOM driver?

Moravian has IMX 571 cameras.   I am looking at those as an alternative to QHY and ZWO.  Joe

From the model number it is Touptek. The same camera is re-labeled and sold under various brands (like Omegon, Altair, ....) 

I have it , it is labeled as Omegon veTEC 571. Works fine with Touptek ASCOM driver. There is also native driver from Touptek 

that I actually use (NINA imaging software) . ASCOM also works nicely with Sharpcap. 

Look to Astroshop.eu /Omegon veTEC571, check whether pricing is comparable. It is significantly lower than other "brands" with the same sensor or even camera as a whole. Astroshop is large European seller and at least I would expect better support than from China.

Moravian does have IMX 571 cameras,  their C3 cameras.    They list their consumer grade chips for use of 300 hours or less a year.   I wonder if all the other manufacturers rate their consumer chips the same??    Joe

I couldn't find anywhere on the aliexpress page where it stated the backfocus (i.e. flange to sensor) distance of the camera. However the same camera is also available on ali under the RisingCam brand and on that page it states the backfocus distance is 17.5mm for the mono camera (same as the colour version). 17.5mm doesn't leave much room for all the other gear you may need for mono imaging e.g. filter wheel etc. so do your maths first.

17.5mm is exactly the same as the ZWO ASI2600MM-pro with the same sensor.  It's generally not a problem to use an OAG, filterwheel, adapters, etc. and still fit in the typical 55mm distance back from most flatteners, etc.
