Pixel size on CCD cameras.


Could someone please explain to me what the difference between the images produced from a Kodak KAI-11002M with 9 x 9 microns and 60 000 well capacity to a Kodak KAF-8300 with 5.4 x 5.4 microns and 25 000 well capacity. I believe that my image with the 11002 will have a wider field of view compared with the 8300 and that the well depth will allow longer exposures without blowing out stars hence getting maybe more nebulosity. What I am lost with, unless everything I have said is incorrect, is the pixel size. Will the smaller pixel size of the 8300 show more detail as opposed to the larger pixels in the 11002.

Thank you,
