Re: More unguided images with the Mach2 and APCC Pro #APCC #Mach2GTO

Nice to see such good images being taken with CMOS cameras. They are getting better all the time. Now the mainstream guys not just the Chinese manufactures are starting to produce them. I am pretty much confined to narrowband being in a large light polluted (Bortle 8-9) city. My icx694 based mono camera works well with narrowband. Love the sensitivity of this Sony chip. Would like to get into something with a larger format possibly and imx455 based camera to get a wider field of view using my TV NP127is scope. However that would mean new FW and 2" filters plus the camera. Hard to justify right now. I wonder if Sony will come out with a mono APS C format CMOS sensor.

How do you feel the OSC camera images compare to those of Mono cameras with filters?
I like this particular camera Don.  I have been enjoying using it.  I'll still be using mono cameras for things like narrowband but I think that the color camera works great for star fields and brighter objects.
