Agreed Ray, it is a new approach, borrowed from the planetary guys but enabled for DSOs by new generation high sensitivity, low noise, sensors. And yeah my NEQ6 is looking more than adequate now. I wonder about the future of the high end CCD manufacturers who have had a gravy train of high margin products for a long time. Many tech changes over the years simply strand users on platforms with no value in the new world. They will hang on for awhile but the future is taking the market elsewhere.
Early adopters always have some teething issues but i expect any problems can be managed. The owners of ZWO must be delighted with the market response, and their stratgy of leveraging their expertise in planetary high frame rate cameras coupled with DSO capable sensors is a winner. That business will certainly be growing.
