Imaging cam advice


Recommended Posts

My profile pic was also taken with a 224mc plus IR cut filter. This camera is more sensitive to infra red and the included sensor window doesn't cut that wavelength so if you want more true colour an IR cut filter is recommended.

As said above ASI224 or ASI385 depending on how large sensor you want.

Both have AR coated window so you'll need IR/UV cut filter and you will need F/15 system to be at critical sampling rate so look for x1.5 barlow - or better, barlow element that you can adjust barlow/sensor distance to get exact F/ratio needed.
