As I am ready to invest in this new CMOS camera from ZWO the Asi2600mc pro , I am trying to understand why this camera will be better than a DSLR with a filter Infront....
How this camera will give me better images ?
I have used DSLR camera some years ago , when I was starting this hobby but after that I have been through mono ccd's , since the time I realized that unfortunately due to lack of time I can not continue with mono imaging and filters....
So I am thinking to give it a try with a brand new, let's say technology of Color CMOS and see what I can get out of it....
I see some really nice examples on the net but am I going to achieve them ?
The Zwo Asi294mc pro widely used around the world is also very promising...Discontinued already as I hear...Amp glow issues....is it really so annoying ?cheaper than the new asi2600 MC pro by half price....
So can someone persuade me that the Zwo Asi2600mc pro is better than the others ? 🤔
Can I please ask, is there anyone out there with the following or a similar setup to this:
William Optics Z61 Scope + WO 61A Flattener + ZWO ASI533MC Pro (or other ZWO Camera) ?
Currently, I have been using the following setup:
William Optics Z61 Scope + WO 61A Flattener + Nikon DSLR
However, by the end of the week I am hoping to have this new setup:
William Optics Z61 Scope + WO 61A Flattener + ZWO ASI533MC Pro
I was really just wondering how the more experienced out there had configured/connected their equipment together?
How people connect their ZWO cameras to the flatteners?
Are the flatteners still required with the smaller sensor cameras ?
I was just wondering if anyone has any pictures of similar setups to above please (equipment trains)?
Thanks in advance for any comments or advice.
Question, is my pier out of level if I'm trying to PA (with asiair pro) and both directions are moving when I adjust the alt bolts? I can't get the mount polar aligned.
Mount neq6 pro
Pier mounted on a concrete slab
OTA c8 with .63 reducer
Camera asi294mc pro
Thanks in advance

How can I set up APT so that it always connects by default to my imaging camera? I have an irritating problem that APT will regularly connect to my guide camera, even though that camera is already connected in Phd2.
I have created two APT shortcuts on the desktop, one specifying camera 2 (which usually is the guidecam) and the other specifying camera 1 (which is usually the imaging camera), but it looks like cameras 1 and 2 are not absolutely assigned to the ASI1600mm (imaging) and ASI290MC (guiding).
At APT startup, in the log it will say 'Connected to ASI1600mm' and then imediately say 'sensor size 5.6mmx3.2mm'. Then I know I have a problem as it's obviously not the 1600! I can usually sort it out by disconnecting, Shift-Connecting (to get the camera selection dialog), and selecting cameras 1 and 2 until I get the correct sensor size.
There must be a better way?

Just wondering what other people have experienced with this camera. I'm using a MacBook Pro, and want to use this camera with my Celestron 8SE. Primarily interested in the planets and the moon, but some deep sky images would be great if it's up to it.
It seems to be out of stock every where, but at $249 is about what I can afford to spend (no income at the moment). All of the research I've been able to do on this camera indicates it should work well with my set up.
I'm just curious if you have had any issues or problems. Thanks in advance!
