ZWO ASI 224MC - expected DSO results?
Posted 27 November 2020 - 08:55 AM
1) is it worth trying to do some DSO imaging with this camera? If so, what kind of targets would be best?
2) what type of settings would you use? 30 second exposures? 60 second? I’m just wondering if this camera can do those types of long settings since I think it’s optimized for many frames per second with planets.

The ASI224 was also a really popular EAA camera.
It's limitations for deep sky objects are the small sensor and lack of cooling. Most common DSO cameras are 4/3" or APS.
Exposures will always depend on equipment, target, and sky conditions.
