This would mean an image size of 5mm.
To get a full disk image you're chip would have to be larger than this.
Smaller chips mean doing a mosaic.
Hello Ken,

Ok and thanks. I have to work out the FOV for each camera then.

I just wonder what other brands are reasonable, and what pixel size, etc? I'm not really sure what to look for in this kind of camera. I'll start looking at what people are using.

Thanks again,
