Starlight Express SXVF-M8C buy used?

Recommended Posts

Is it worth to buy Starlight Express SXVF-M8C used for around 210 gbp. Or should I save up for a new CCD? I currently use unmodified Canon EOS 700D.

It will be a smaller FOV than 700D and is quite narrow.  Try running it through Astronomy Tools.  It has small pixels though so should give you a decent image scale.  It should be a decent camera if you can live with the rectangular FOV.

Probably better for smaller galaxy work (e.g. M51) rather than larger nebula (e.g. M42)
