We're drifting into the bad place again. Could people self censor emotion and emotionally laden words, please?
Focusing on information. Ppeople involved with this discussion should also look at this thread. Dim detail, some narrowband, Amp glow seems to have not been a barrier.
Mandatory disclaimers. Not saying the camera is anything other than, perhaps, the best entry level choice. Still need more examples, that is a very early camera, production models are just shipping now..
I'll counter that none of the targets are dim or extended. Need and very looking forward to more of those examples.
That's part of the issue with this thread. I don't think anyone would argue it's a bad choice for an entry level camera. I also think there were some good points about bang for the buck. It certainly is that even if there is amp glow, trouble calibrating, and less than perfect integrated package. At its price point, I think it would make high end APS-C dslrs obsolete for solely imaging astronomy targets. The versatility of allowing for planetary imaging is also awesome. Even based on the limited examples and ZWO's reputation, it is going to be a good product! But the original question was comparing to the Sony sensors as well as 8300s. I just don't think even if it lives up to the hype we can say it'll make them obsolete, especially the Sony sensors.
