Well I hope this thread helped some of you make a decision. I am interested in more people getting into astrophotography who can otherwise may not be able to due to cost. That's why I chose to use it with an AVX instead of bringing my Paramount. I think this camera coupled with a WO Star 71, AVX or Sirius class mount will make a very nice beginners setup for a very reasonable price.
I don't know about what the lucky imaging is all about. I don't know what Emil does, how he does what he does. He does not publish his methods. I still think the traditional processing will be superior. This is my opinion.
this test was perfect for me - this will be my first mono camera, I'll be using it with my AT72ED on the Atlas for first light. Many, many more questions on my part to come for sure
