I would like some opinions on very widefield AP kit.
Half of my kit below is going to a remote observatory in Spain (the 10 micron, FSQ and QHY camera).
At home, I will have my LZOS 152 (+QSI for detailed DSO and galaxies) and my Edge (+ASI290 for planets) and I will also have my WO 71mm. I am interested in a relatively no fuss widefield camera option for this scope. I like in the UK so generally having a cooled camera isn't a huge deal. i was thinking....
1. A modified DSLR?
The advantage here would be that I could avoid messing around with getting new filters and although I have no experience with one shot color cameras, it seems like it would be fun to go down this route. After all, I will have a fairly widefield set up at a remote site for NB imaging.
Disadvantages - (?) - not a dedicated astro camera and no cooling (but I am not sure if this really represents a disadvantage in practical terms)
2. A dedicated OSC camera - if so, which would you consider for widefield imaging?
I have my own opinions and I am not a novice but I have no experience with DSLRs. Please lend me your thoughts.
