Planetary and deepsky cameras??

Recommended Posts

Ive been trying to workout what makes a ccd either more suitable for deep sky imaging or planetary.

Is it the:-


Chip size?

Pixel size?



Im contemplating investing in a DS camera but too sure on what specs i need to look out for???

Could anyone give me a minimum spec for a DS camera.

Thank you

In general Planetary imaging benefits from smaller pixels and high frame rate with Deep sky its cooling and chip size with a pixel size that compliments the scope in use.
