Looking to get an OSC camera for my FLT132. Considering the ZWO ASI2600 MC Pro.  Any thoughts or suggestions?

The ASI2600 MC Pro is an excellent camera.  I like mine.  You’ll probably want to consider a field flattener if one is available for that scope.

 

The image below was a 5.5 hour exposure with the ASI2600 MC Pro.  Click through to see a higher resolution version.

The 68III is the flattener to get for the FLT132.  it's fantastic.

 

The 2600 will work great.

 

I have a 6200 and the FLT132 with 68III produces wonderful results all the way across the frame.  That's HARD to do for the IMX455.  It's a great ota.  Congrats!!

Hey thanks! Yes I have the correct flattener with the scope. So I’ll consider this camera! Sounds good.
