So the Flea3 GigE is not with the ICX618 sensor ?!

Thanks Karlo, I do have the 1.3 beta and the most recent FlyCap loaded. Will read the thread after Saturn goes down and I get my first light with this new camera. Then I may play around with long expoure DSO if possible.

Mr. Willems, the Flea3 GigE is intended to come out in a model that uses the ICX618, but it is not out yet. Word I get from PGR is Q4. The model I tried was the first GigE and had the ICX 445 in it. It has admitted ghosting/bleeding issues with even subtle stretching. I could not run any significant wavelet or sharpen filter on the above photo without what looked like either a ghost image to the right or almost like water stains / bleeding in the object coming through. Then again, maybe I don't know what I am doing but engineering guys at PGR in Germany picked up one of my messages one day, tried it themselves nd confirmed the issue - which is now purported to be with engineering.

Does the ROI ghosting issue still exist on the Flea 3 GigE ICX445? I was about to buy it, but do not if there is still this outstanding issue. If it is, I am thinking of getting the smaller Blackfly ICX683 so I have a 50fps camera.
