Quote:Brian,I am expecting my A694 to arrive any day now. Should be a very nice camera in many regards.I haven't timed the cool down on the A8050 but it does seem slower than the Alta bodies which were already noted as being slower than the competition. Personally, I'm always opening up the observatory to cool down and turning the camera on then so cool down time is never an issue there and for field work it's always at temp by the time I finish my short polar alignment and target acquisition. To me cool down time isn't critical as it never held me back.Regards,Nate

Quote:There are 6v deep cycle batteries that you can buy. Since I think it's always a good idea to power the camera from a separate battery, 6v shouldn't be an issue I think.
