It was made clear that this camera/software combo was moreso for the beginner, and that this was a single item review, and not a comparison between one product over the other.
Thanks for the review!

One thing, though:
The author wrote "At less than $100, the Meade DSI is an incredible bargain and well worth the money." Is the DSI really available for that kind of money? Or did you mean the much less sensitive LPI, which as far as I know goes for $99?
As the pictures showed deep sky objects, I suppose the review was for the DSI and not the LPI?

It was a heck of a deal!

The deal is not completely over yet. Telescopes.com is selling the DSI pro for $139 shipped and the DSI for $99 shipped. I was told they still had 150 of the pro units left.

When you really get into astronomy big time, you will have fun transporting big time equipment. The CGE head weighs in at about 45lbs, the tripod another 30 lbs, a 10" SCT weighs another 30+ lbs, and hopefully you have a dark sky site where you can set up near your car. I have one site near home which requires the use of a wheel barrel to cart all this stuff to my observing site (a small soccer field) then put up a tarp on the soccer net to block an area of car lights before setting up. Not one of the desirable aspects of this hobby. But I love it!
