How did you achieve a f/3.3? I asked around how to do this with a C6 f/10 and was told with the Universe version there are inevitable problems due to chip size.

The camera he was using was the older MHCP (Mallincam Hyper Color Plus) not the Universe. With the smaller chip Mallincams, f/3.3 works fine. Also, as I recall Rock saying, the Universe is more suitable for larger telescopes.

The Universe would work well with ordinary camera lenses too. It's not the aperture itself which is so important, but rather the field size you wish to cover. With Universe you could attach an 8mm f.l. (~4mm aperture!) fisheye lens to obtain an all-sky image.
