I am about to plunge into EAA, having recently discovered its appeal. I just purchased an ASIair, so I am committed (for the time being) to ZWO cameras and the processing available with the ASIair. In looking at the available ZWO cameras (under $1000) I am trying to determine the best first camera choice. Both sensor size and cooling seem to be the major issues, although sensor capacity (i.e., MB) may be important as well. I don't know.
My DSO interests range from very small (e.g., Ring Nebula) to quite large (Andromeda), and most common objects (nebulae, clusters, etc.). I like to share my results with others (like my wife and kids), so EAA is appealing to me. I have a home network to which I would export live-stacked images. I have been doing "offline" AP for about 2 years with a Pentax K-7 DSLR, and would like to continue this as well. (The K-7 has no wifi capability but can connect to a laptop via mini HDMI with suitable software.)
Equipment: I have an f10 / 200mm SCT (with an f6.3 reducer) and an f6 / 61mm refractor and field flattener. My mount is an AVX. I have not started to autoguide, but I have the equipment for this (50mm scope with an ASI120MM-MINI camera, and the ASIair).
Relevant observing environment: Significant light pollution (Bortle 6), but moderate temperatures. I am about 8 miles from the Pacific Coast, 55 miles north of LA. Winter evening temperatures easily drop to 8C at times, so no cooling problem there, I assume. Though summer ocean breezes usually cool things off well, we can experience a weeks long "heat wave" with temperatures up to 22-24C (LOL, I know that would hardly qualify as a heat wave for some).
I would like to hear some suggestions or opinions on best camera, as we all pros and cons of things like sensor resolution/size, pixel size, etc. considering my scopes, present equipment, and DSO interests.
