I just retested with my wimpy laptop the USB speed of the new ASI294
In USB2 full frame it is 3.4fps in Raw8 and 1.6fps in Raw16
In USB3 full frame it is 16.7fps in Raw8 and 13.3fps in Raw16
dropping down to HDMI resolution 1920x1080 and USB3 at Raw16 i got 20.2fps
not sure about the claim for 120fps...
but I will test with my more powerful desktop to rule out wimpy laptop issue
If you have a computer (laptop powered on 230V or tower, don't care) with a SSD, Sata 3, USB 3.0, it
would be cool !
Looks like you want one camera to do it all. You have also not mentioned what scope you want to use this camera with.
Yes for me this camera have to be multipurpose so that you are free to choose what you
want to do. One night, EEA, Next one, lunar imaging, Next one, Jupiter. Next one, M57, etc...
Most lunar imagers usually focus on certain areas or detail with larger scopes. But for the whole thing
a 174 or 178 will easily fit the whole moon on my refractors.
For my 300/1600 and 400/1800 telescopes, I want a big sensor with high fps.
Believe me, it's useful in this case for high resolution imaging !
You will not match the frame rates of the smaller sensors.
The more that can be done with a big PC setup, the best it will be !!
And we have to keep in mind the evolution of computers for next years...
