Need to know about how to work that new mount or scope? Got tips on how to make it easier?

Help with cooling a CCD.

Postby Terrierist » Wed Jun 06, 2018 11:21 am

I've taken the plunge and now have a one-shot colour ccd. I simply couldn't afford the cooled version and I've seen some excellent articles/videos on the internet about building your own cooler.

My questions, are these as effective as the factory built models? Are they as reliable? Has anybody reading this had direct experience with them?

It seems a big saving to be able to spend £30-£40 building one over the £300 or there about the manufacturers ask.

The ccd in question is a ZWO 178 MC.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
