Hi all, 

Wanting to dip my toes into astro imaging and need so advice please. 

I have the SW 127 mak on the goto mount and need to know the the best cam buy (not dlsr) 

Don't want to break the bank so looking for your recommendations. 

Seen a secondhand neximage 10 for a good price. There are various offerings from zwo amongst others so what's your thoughts and experiences?

Yes I do primarily but hoping there may be a few DSO's I could have a go at. 

The 224 is a great planetary camera but due to the small chip size is limited for DSO's. Also for longer exposures with a mak you would really need guiding and a good equatorial mount.
