It is my first time I order a product at Opt. Everything was running smoothly and I receive my product in perfect stand one week later in Switzerland. Only delivery service of UPS in Switzerland was a bit messy.
I've had the pleasure of using this camera for a few sessions. Combined with a short refractor, this is a great camera. Super easy to use and reliable. I run it at -10c and get virtually no noise from the camera itself. Certainly no amp glow. The square sensor takes a bit to get used to. However, I've found it makes framing a snap. The camera was in stock at OPT and came in a week.
Well, I have quite a bit experiences, but I dtruggel with the sensitivity results I get from the 533, maybe I have to play more with gain and Offset, but out of the box the Camera works easily with no amp glow with my MaximDL Suite. I guess, just more experience would help, but the results from my ASI1600MMPCool are much more detail containing than this color CCD. Time will tell :) Works great with the ASI Filter Drawer as a grab and go setup on a WO Star71 widefield setup.
I love this camera, it performs excellent. ZWO is defiantly the leader in DSO cameras. If you only have room or budget for one dedicated camera in your bag this is a really great choice... if you have room for two I’d get a 294 & 183.
I use this for EAA and the images are very smooth, clean, and beautiful. With cooling and no amp glow, darks are optional though I often use them. GRAB ONE!
I've used this camera for a total of 30 ish hours under the stars since my purchase in June. Has immensely upped the quality of my astrophotography. Works great with dual narrowband filters such as the Optolong L-eXtreme and my Ed80/600 refractor.
