Hello all, 

 

I had a question about off axis guiding.  I want to buy a guide camera for my celestron advanced VX 8" SCT.  I contacted the representatives at Altair Astro and they suggested the GPCAM3 385C Color guide camera.  I know most people say that mono is much better.  I'm just curious as to why Altair suggested a color camera.  Is there some specific benefit to a color camera with an OAG setup?

 

Thanks

 

Les

Nevermind...I think he was confused.  Disregard this post.

 

Thanks
