I received my camera very promptly, and now that I’ve had a little time to get used to it, I can say that I am very happy with it. I have had limited success using my ASIAIR with the camera, having so far controlled the camera, polar alignment, and plate solving. Attached are a couple of unguided pictures, one is a stack of 22, 45 second exposures, and the other is a stack of 20, 3 minute exposures.
I have been getting pretty good results with the ASI294MC; but its 4.63ųm pixel-size is a bit small for my Schmidt-Cassegrain 8-inch telescope. I would need more like a 6ųm pixel-size and a 9ųm would be just fine. Unfortunately, not too many if these cameras around for under $100,000.00 I was looking at a 152mm Refractor and that seems to be a perfect focal-length selection for this camera. You live and learn, I guess.
