Hello to all.
First post here. So I recently acquired some new gear....
Explore Scientific ed102mm c.f.
Polemaster on my CGEM mount
Asi 120mm ccd for guiding

Well I'm looking for a good ccd camera for this f/7 refractor. Not looking to spend 1k. Hoping there's one under. Looking at several ZWO models but this will be my first jump from a modified canon dslr to stand alone ccd camera.

Any help towards what you suggest would be great. Obviously scope used for DSO objects.

Thanks to all
Clear Skies

I think all zwo cameras are of the cmos variety, not ccd. An Atik 414 would be a nice choice for a fairly inexpensive ccd, but it is above $1,000.00. I have the 314 mono and it has performed admirally.
