I do not have the camera, however their is a guy on YouTube that did a favorable review of the G3 mono. It certainly looks like a decent setup for the money imho. If I didn't have the DSI II, I would get that one. Also, but for more money, is the Lodestar. Not really an imager, but I have seen some wonderful shots with it for semi-live viewing. 

 

An important consideration is what scope/mount your using. A GEM is really necessary for anything longer than 30 second exposures, and guiding probably necessary for anything over a minute.
