Quote:We're on the hunt for a new video camera as well and while it is for class/research it needs to meet the same requirements as the outreach cameras (needs to integrate and has to be very easy to use). I am mounting ours on the slit entrance to a Lhires III spectrograph to replace our StellaCam3 (junk) and now replacing the replacement supercircuits pc165dnr (more junk). The one thing I did like about the StellaCams is that they have a remote. Do any of these you are recommending have one or easy to use controls?
