Embracing the New(er) EEVA Technology?

Recommended Posts

Finally got round to trying my ASI120MM via SharCap... Offline & LIve Stacking
This a rather "faint" M3 using an ED80 / 100x 4sec frames. So it works anyway...
A nice smooth image, pleasingly small stars - But not very deep in magnitude?


By contrast the old Watec 910HX with an 8" Newt:


Brighter! A tad "rough & ready" but not quite as BAD as imagined?

Of course this is not a FAIR test... "Aperture always wins". Plus I am
not convinced MONO8 format uses the full 12/14 bit potential of
the ASI? Must read the manual(s) and do a few more "tests" tho! ?

Vacuum tube eeva?

If my Lodestar failed I would definitely consider getting another -- probably immediately! Or maybe an Ultrastar mono. I'm not convinced that the Lodestar has been superseded for EAA use, at leas

I suppose my "ideal" would have been a *16-bit* (hardware-stacking!) 1" Watec-thing, pumping out higher ADC resolution (than 8-bit!) images on standard coax at 25 fps? ? Not yet sure how I will
