Atik 314L+ or QHY8L help

Postby lizard » Mon Apr 18, 2016 11:44 pm

Hi Guys,

I have decided to take the leap from modified DSLR imaging to CCD imaging, I have been checking out reviews and at the moment it seems to be a toss up between the Atik 314L+ and the QHY8L both similarly priced.

I will be imaging with either the RC8 or SW200PDS to give some flexibility with FOV.

I don't think that I have the patience to go for mono and imaging over several sessions, plus the additional expense of filters, filter wheel, etc. therefore I am considering the OSC version for the Atik, any advise and experience with these cameras or alternatives would be greatly appreciated in helping me decide.

Kind Regards, Steve.
