I was not expecting to get the camera before new years. It arrived on xmas eve
Boy, is this camera ever small. I'm almost afraid to use it in case I lose it... it's that small.
Not sure if this is the right place to post but the Blackfly is to be used with my Lunt 60THA B1200 so I'm taking a chance. I bought the GIGE version and now I would like to purchase a very flexible network cable about 15 to 20 feet long. I live in Canada and I image from +30c to -30c so I would like a cable that remains somewhat flexible in -30c. I don't care about cost, I want a flexible cable.
To all the network gurus out there is there cable brand you would recommend. A link to a purchase site would be awesome.

BTW. I'm thinking about one of e2v based cams too. Those chips are really nice (and big).

Maybe think of wraping that heating tape with the wire in it, the kind used to keep water pipes from freezing or some kind of dew heater strip really really long type application.

Please post your initial first light results and thoughts. I've been pondering over this camera as well, but am nervous about using CMOS for solar.
Micron CMOS is not all CMOS You can check for example here: http://www.astrosurf...TML/037433.html where they tested that e2v sensor with a big Lunt.
