Hi , I am looking to buy my first cooled CCD camera and would like some advice on the best combination of camera, filter wheel and filters for my setup. I currently use DSLRs (1 modded and 1 unmodded) with a Altair wave Ed80 triplet mounted on a NEQ6. I guide using a Orion SSG, which works really well, and mostly image DSOs (nebulae and some widefield shots of galaxies). I have looked at some cameras online but don't really have a clue where to begin. My budget for camera, filters and filter wheel is about £2.5 - £3k. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Hi all, After beeing a bit away from the forum due to technical problems here goes some new images made with my TEC cooled Canon 350D (self modded). The most recent image is the Iris nebula, in this night I had some dewing problems in the sensor with moisture forming betwen the CMOS sensor itself and Baader filter, even with the heating system that I made connected the dew didn't go away...so another brainstorming arose...and I made an insulated box from a Tupperware and put the camera inside together with a big dissecant bag, first tests are promissing, hi haven't had a single issue so far, let's see during the soaking winter nights Well...enough speech, here goes the images: Best wishes,
