My existing scope is an 18" Starmaster with a FL of 2286, so f5. It is set up with GOTO and track (Sky Commander/Sky Tracker.) I live 45 minutes NW of Austin, TX and have relatively dark skies. I have been intrigued with EAA for some time and have recently been reviewing the current 'state of the art.'
One source I have been reading is Jim Meadows' RemoteViewingAstronomy.com. He speaks very highly of the Mallincam DS10c and the current Mallincamp softwares's capabilities.
So, I am considering that camera which is currently priced, I believe, at $949.99. I also note that the Mallincam DS16c is on sale, marked down from $1399.99 to $999.99. Any comments on the two cameras' relative strengths/weaknesses would be appreciated and please feel free to suggest other camera options.
Additionally, I would appreciate any input as to general challenges/concerns/considerations presented by a dob like mine related to EAA.
Thanks in advance for your assistance, particularly from those of you utilizing a GOTO/TRACK dob in your EAA endeavors.
