If you don't need TSX support than I think it's an excellent choice with very good cooling.

BTW, you need 31mm unmounted filters, not 1.25" in this camera. At least this was the recommendation. You might get away with 1.25" but I wouldn't want to test this. 31 mm unmounted are available from Astronomik and Astrodon and probably some others.

Feel free to contact me if you need some other help.

any pics of the camera and filters Peter? would the 1.25 cause vignetting?

i see there are now external filter wheels for these cameras? no not using the TSX but would be ASCOMming it with either nebulousity or something else?
