Which ZWO cameras do not dew up in Singapore?

Post by Meng Lee »

Hi all,

I just like to ask around owners of cooled ZWO cameras. Which cooled ZWO camera absolutely does not dew up in Singapore? I am just thinking if the ZWO camera window dew heater feature really works or not for us.

I’m using the Zwo Asi533mc pro and Asi585mc (non-pro version). So far, no dew problem. But I usually stop by around 1-2am, so maybe the air is not so humid yet.

Thanks, good to know that. On ZWO website, it says that "For ASI183/ASI1600/ASI294/ASI533 cameras, the heat emitting from the TEC will be conducted to the camera case and avoid any dew problems when TEC cooling system is working." so it seems to be working.

I only know Player-One cameras and Touptek cooled cameras have adjustable heaters on their sensor windows.

I have used a ZWO ASI533MC Pro from night to the next morning. No issues with dew.
