I haven't had a lot of chance to use mine since it was purchased due to weather and training commitments, but I am quite impressed with what I have done. Recently managed to get an image of Saturn with no less than five of its moons, which given the streetlights I thought was not too bad. Got mine from Modern Astronomy. Excellent service (see suppliers review writeup).

The 12V6 is a really versatile camera. I just dont know why everyone hasnt got one of these in their kit bag.

1 using them with a telly you can see far more LIVE than through the ep.

2 link it to a capture card and you can take quite respectable images, the images arent S@N gallery material but you wouldnt expect that from a 200 quiid camera

3 I use mine for guiding as well

Heres a few I took with a capture card with it in a C11 at f6.3
