Dead SCB-4000 - renew or replace?

Recommended Posts

So I turned on my Samsung SCB-4000 this evening having not used it for literally years. 

Well, it’s had-it basically.

It “works” but with sensitivity turned up, it’s splattered all over with dead pixels (either age, or quite likely improper handling by me under bright light conditions). Even with sensitivity off under daylight conditions, dead pixels are clearly visible. 

Should I replace it (about £50)?

- or alternatively are there much better and more modern options that I should be considering?

The use-case is that I am in a heavily light-polluted environment, and I want to watch video live as deep-sky objects reveal themselves on some kind of 12v battery-powered display screen.

I’d really like a self-contained solution rather than involving a laptop.

Thanks in advance,
