I have been wondering the passage from my DSLR to a CCD for quite a long time. After a bit of thinking and reading, I did lay my eyes on the ASI 1600mm.
However I have been offered a used QHY163m for 800€.
The price sounds very good to me and I know the two use exactly the same sensor. However, reading some posts, I’m a bit concerned about the problems of the QHY camera with 1.25” filters and the need of using larger (and more expensive) filters that could nullify the money saved.
In particular I have a 80mm f/4.3 refractor and a old orange tube C8 (f/10).
Are my fears founded? Is this a good deal? Do you think this would be a good sensor for these two scopes?
Thank you very very much for your opinions and help
