Quote:The Celestron site says it will ship in April. Adorama says it will ship in February. Telescopes.com (hayneedle) says it will ship May 21st and arrive May 24th. I figure I will get mine after the evening thunderstorms begin in August. This is consistent with Murphy's Law which seems to be very accurate.

Do you think they are aware that it is already APRIL and very nearly May Art
Quote:OK. I just talked to the guy at Astronomics. The old version HAS been discontinued. The new version is called the Celestron NexImage 5 Solar System Imager (not released yet - at least Astronomics and OPT do not have it yet) and it is expected to be in stock at any time. He says it is a better camera (see link below) than the old one but can't comment on the doubling of the price. In other words (this is my assumption) he probably doesn't know if it is twice as good as the original. Here is the OPT write-up on the new version: linkeroo rahtchere. I also read somewhere that the new software includes aligning and stacking, although Registax and Avistack handle that quite well, so you each will have to determine if that is an advantage. As you can see, the new price is US$199. Amazon used to carry the old version at ~$92, back before Christmas. Shoulda bit back then! If you want the old version, I guess you'll have to go to the used market. I saw one on CN classified the other day for $75 (used once). Astromart may have some deals as well. I've never used flea-bay and most likely never will, but that is a possibility too.Cheers gang,

Good luck with the NexImage. Hope to be looking at your captures in the near future.
Don't think your off the hook.

Quote:From experience, NexImage doesn't play nice with windows XP.
Quote:OK, imaging gurus! I have a really dumb newbie question on using the NexImage. Do you put it into the visual back in place of the star diagonal or do you use the diag and put the NexImage "snout" in it, taking the place of an EP??
