I've been imaging almost 10 years now, various experience with APOs and SCTs.
I'm really interested to hear folks thoughts about these new full frame CMOS sensors (the IMX455) coming in at an approachable (well still insane for a hobby) price range. Yes I know CCD cameras have had much larger sensor capabilities in the past, but that was a pretty limited audience at $20k camera price ranges...
In the past, it felt like I had to chase FoV with different scopes of different focal lengths. This sensor, using 'Region of Interest' settings in capture software (if I'm understanding correctly) will now allow me to basically set field of view per target (obviously up to the limit of the sensor size) and suddenly I have a wide range of FoV to choose from with the same scope. Albeit, I'll have different file sizes as I use more of the sensor.
Is anyone doing this actively, and how practical is this? With the various capture programs, how easy/reliable can you use Region of Interest and does it over-complicate things -
I'm thinking of much smaller file sizes for smaller targets is a huge advantage, but if just too complex, meh, just crop and be done and take the hit on disk storage.
Interested in thoughts and experience so far -
