frank, yes, the resolution would be good, i would think about 1.3 arcsec per pixel. Would have to check that when i get home, but i would say the KAF-8300 would be well suited to any optical system between 350mm and about 1700mm. Anything under 350mm will be undersampled. Although at that short a focal length you're not likely to notice. Anything over 1700mm will be heavily oversampled.. I'll be using mine at 480mm and 1000mm. If i can make a lens adapter, i might do some super wide field work at 50 to 135mm.. Would love to do a wide field view of orion at 50mm in sho pallete!
