https://www.youtube....mnN6fQ&t=19sI'm using my video gallery here to highlight and spark a conversation about 2 very popular planet cams,

 the ZWO asi120mc and the 1224mc. I would like input from users regarding each. I know the asi120 is a slower camera than the 1224, but it still gives a generous 110 fps on Jupiter without any frames dropped. Considering that one can increase the frame count by using derotation, is the 1224 or any of the high end cameras really worth the additional cost? Do you prefer one over the other? Just want some thoughts and opinions regarding your own experience with either or both of these prized cameras. Newbies, intermediate and advanced are invited to join in.

Great work.  The 224 certainly seems to show more intense color.

I tend to agree with you. Thanks for the input.

The air was incredibly still in the video.
